Faulkner ranked second in Division I with 41 stolen bases and had been caught stealing only once. He's a 70 runner on the 20-80 scouting scale and turns in some 80 times on bunts and jailbreak swings, and his overall game resembles that of Juan Pierre. Faulkner lacks even Pierre's strength and hitting ability, however, as a weak-bodied 5-foot-11, 155-pounder with a well below-average arm. He'll have to get stronger to be a factor at the plate, but his speed will earn him plenty of chances.
