Drafted in the 4th round (109th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2013 (signed for $425,000)
At 6-foot-5, 215 pounds, Patterson is built like a power-hitting first baseman. He offers intrigue as a lefty reliever, throwing 90-93 mph with a solid slider from a maximum-effort delivery. But he has been a tremendous college hitter and was Sun Belt Conference player of the year, batting .360/.493/.536 entering regional play. Patterson has a flat swing plane and hit just four homers this year after eight in 2012, but he does make consistent hard contact, ranking fourth in the country with 25 doubles. He has good bat speed and hits good pitching; he just doesn't have profile power for first base. He's a fringy runner but clearly has the arm strength to give the outfield corners a go as well.
