Duncan is the son of Cardinals pitching coach Dave and older brother of Chris, a Cardinals supplemental first-round pick in 1999. That would seem to make the 6-foot-5, 210-pound outfielder a likely target of the Cardinals in this draft. Duncan has legitimate major league power potential to all fields and set school records for season and career homers in 2001. Overall as a hitter, he is vulnerable at the plate and can be pitched to. None of his other tools ranks above-average. He once was clocked at 90-91 mph off the mound, but he hasn't regained full strength in the arm after Tommy John surgery following an ill-fated pitching stint in 2000. Scouts project him as a left fielder because of his arm, and possibly a first baseman because of his below-average speed.
