Jon Berti has hit .368, .423 and .356 in three seasons at Bowling Green State. He's a 5-foot-10, 175-pound sparkplug with a line-drive righthanded swing and well above-average speed. He has a knack for squaring pitches up and using the opposite field, though he doesn't have much pop and struggled with wood bats last summer in the Cape League. His hands and arm aren't quite up to snuff at shortstop, where he made 17 errors in 46 games this spring, so he'll likely shift to second base in pro ball.
