Curry is a powerful, righthanded bat who's had three straight double-digit home run seasons with Georgia and this spring hit .327/.403/.505 with 10 home runs. After starting 43 games at catcher as a freshman, Curry has transitioned into a primary DH role with the Bulldogs the last two seasons, and some teams might be out on him entirely thanks to his lack of a defensive home. He's most likely a corner outfielder or a designated hitter, which puts significant pressure on his bat--though he has plus raw power. He's a short, squatty hitter who gets out on his front foot at times and also swings and misses--his strikeout rate is right around 20 percent for his career--but he did show impressive plate discipline in the Cape Cod League last summer, with 23 walks and 14 strikeouts in 33 games. Curry is also lauded for his impressive makeup.
