Helman made an immediate impact for the Aggies, as he stepped in as the team's second baseman and quickly became the Texas A&M leadoff hitter. He was leading the team in mid-May with a .365/.456/.521 slash line. Helman's best attributes as a hitter are his ability to grind out at-bats, as he works counts and has above-average hand-eye coordination. Helman is a plus runner who understands leads well enough to be a basestealing threat in pro ball (he's 11-for-13 on steals through mid-May). Defensively, he's a fringe-average second baseman who is just adequate there with modest range and hands and a fringe-average arm. But he makes the routine plays at second, has played third base when he was at Hutchinson (Kan.) JC and probably best fits in pro ball as a rangy center fielder. Helman's athleticism and his solid production makes him a useful day two pick who has some offensive potential and defensive versatility.
