Stewart was a phenomenal athlete coming out of Rocky Mountain High (Fort Collins, Colo.), but even then we wrote that there were questions about his bat. Three years later, Stewart isn't the same athlete he was out of high school and still has scouts wondering how much he'll hit, since he's never quite put it together at Stanford. Over his three years there, Stewart is hitting .258/.308/.373. Stewart has come up out of his Jeff Bagwell-esque low crouch this year, but still has some stiffness to his swing and is overly aggressive at the plate. Stewart has some strength in his frame, but projects to hit for gap power, not home run power. He is an above-average runner and plays a great center field. But if his bat doesn't develop, that's more of a fourth outfielder's profile, rather than an everyday player.
