Brandon Guyer
Name: Brandon Eric Guyer
Born: Jan 28, 1986 in West Chester, Pa. USA
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 200 lbs

Drafted in the 5th round (157th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2007 (signed for $148,000)
Guyer played poorly in the Cape Cod League last year, and he ultimately could fall into the category of solid hitter without enough power for a corner or quickness for the middle of the diamond. The consistent hard contact he made for the Cavaliers this spring opened the eyes of scouts, however, and in a draft thin in college hitters, he had a chance to go off the board in the top five rounds. He plays the game with fervor and has an aggressive, all-out approach. He doesn't work counts and he will swing and miss often, but he has solid-average bat speed and an ability to lash line drives from gap to gap. He's a 60 runner on the 20-80 scale, but lacks the lateral quickness to develop into an above-average defensive second baseman, and his fringy arm strength plays best in left field.
