Perkins, an Arizona State commit, brings a certain grace and smoothness to the field. The best athlete among all Arizona high school position players, he's got five tools with average-or-better potential. Perkins is a natural center fielder and seemingly glides to balls in the outfield. He sees the ball off the bat well, takes good routes and catches the ball easily. He's at least a plus runner with a smooth stride in motion and shows off a good arm in the outfield. At the plate, Perkins' hands work well and he's got good bat speed, with the ball jumping off his bat, but he needs to get stronger and tighten up the swing somewhat in order to become an impact hitter. He hits line drives to all fields and projects to have average power once he physically matures.
