The production Kentucky received from first baseman Ryan Strieby (.344-20-77) was a surprise. At 6-foot-6 and 235 pounds, Strieby has a massive frame with plenty of strength. He played in a wood-bat league in his native Washington at Edmonds Community College in 2004 and '05, preparing him for his tour in the SEC, where he became the conference's player of the year. He prefers to get his burly arms extended and pull balls out of the park to left field, but his power spans from foul pole to foul pole. He has a feel for the strike zone, but Strieby has a tough time laying off good breaking balls. Defensively, he's average at best with adequate hands and a below-average arm. He's a well-below-average runner.
