View Draft ReportHinson has good athleticism and tools, and he's a plus runner despite a back injury that caused him to take a medical redshirt in 2009. He's rough around the edges defensively, having stumbled at second and third base this season. He fits best as a utility player who focuses on the outfield, and some scouts soured on him after he turned down the Phillies as a 13th-round pick.
