    Kirk Gibson's son has plenty of athleticism and when he rounds second and heads to third on a triple, you see the familial resemblance. But Cam Gibson doesn't have his father's physicality, which limits his pro potential. He's a table-setter who is often looking to slap the ball and use his top-of-the-scale speed to get on-base. Gibson is very spread out at the plate and doesn't use his lower half much in his swing. His batting average peaked as a freshman and has dropped off each of the past two years, but he has shown an improved ability to yank the ball for power. Defensively he has the tools to be a center fielder but his routes need to improve, as does his reliability (five errors as a junior). His well below-average arm is also a concern.
