The most dangerous hitter on a Purdue team that won its first Big Ten Conference regular season title in 103 years, Perkins homered in his first college game and has been a consistent threat ever since. A confident hitter who isn't afraid to attack early in the count or out of the strike zone, he has a quick righthanded swing and a 6-foot-5, 200-pound frame that gives him the strength and long levers to drive the ball. He can get too aggressive and likely will have to make adjustments to his swing and approach in pro ball, though he hasn't run into trouble yet. Perkins' hands, arm and speed are all decent to average. He's unorthodox at third base but gets the job done, though scouts aren't enamored of his low arm slot on throws. If he can't handle the hot corner, left field would be the next option. He gets high marks for his makeup and baseball savvy, and in a weak year for college bats he shouldn't get past the fifth round.
