Joey Terdoslavich began his college career at Miami, hitting .293 with five homers in 123 at-bats as a freshman. After a successful tour in the Alaska League, he transferred to Long Beach State, forcing him to sit out last season. The nephew of ex-big leaguer Mike Greenwell, Terdoslavich is a big-bodied third baseman at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds. He started slow but rebounded, and he was hitting .323/.378/.484 with seven home runs, impressive numbers for Long Beach's cavernous Blair Field. From both sides of the plate, Terdoslavich employs the modern power hitter's swing. He loads up with a hard uppercut and a high finish, looking to put backspin on the ball and drive it out of the yard. During batting practice, pitches ricocheting off of his bat make a distinct, loud ping. Long Beach State has used him at the hot corner, though his hands and actions are short for him to stay there as a pro. A move to first base is likely. His arm is decent but his speed is below-average.
