The son of long-time Major League catcher Mike Stanley, Tanner will look to follow in his father's footsteps, though he is a very different player. The younger Stanley is a lefthanded hitter with advanced strike zone discipline. He has a short swing and has shown the ability to use the power in his hips to drive his swing. Some scouts project him to develop an above-average hit tool, and while power is an essential part of his game, Stanley can turn on mistakes and pull the ball over the fence. When he's healthy, Stanley has shown advanced instincts and speed in center field. He has a fringe-average arm that plays up because of his accuracy. Stanley broke a bone in his foot late in his sophomore year and the injury nagged him in the fall and parts of this spring. While Stanley still has above-average speed, he has been slower out of the box at times this spring, and the health of his foot clouds his immediate future, both on the bases and in center. Still, some teams are believe in his bat and he could end up being a nice value pick, especially if he's able to eventually put his injury behind him.
