    Pepperdine moved d'Arnaud to shortstop from this base this spring to replace Danny Worth, and d'Arnaud increased his draft stock by showing he could handle short. His arm and range profile better at third base, where he's an above-average defender, but he's solid-average at short. He lacks the raw power potential of his younger brother Travis, who was a second-round pick last year of the Phillies, but improved with the bat and showed solid gap power. He's also an average runner and a tick above underway.
