Loehr has positioned himself to potentially become the first Oregon prep middle infielder to go in the first four rounds since 1986, when the Braves picked Brian Champion 33rd overall. The lefthanded hitter is an energetic, high-intensity gamer with tools and instincts. Scouts who like Loehr believe he could develop into an above-average hitter with his bat-to-ball skills, compact stroke and advanced approach. His line-drive stroke will likely limit him to below-average power, though he has a chance to have high doubles production. An average runner, Loehr's speed plays at plus on the field and out of the box. His speed has a chance to be an asset on the bases with a quick first step and instincts. His above-average lateral range, body control and sure hands are a defensive asset. Loehr has an average arm that plays up because of a quick release and gives him a chance to stay at short, and he could be an above-average defender at second, his most likely long-term destination. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder has an athletic build with present strength and room to fill out further. He is committed to Oregon State and is old for the class as a 19-year-old on draft day.
