Merrifield spent most of the season in right field and has experience in the infield and center. He's the best athlete among South Carolina's draft-eligible group, with 6.7-second speed in the 60 and team-highs in 12 home runs and 12 stolen bases. Merrifield earns Ryan Freel comparisons and plays with a swagger that defies his 6-foot, 165-pound frame
