Baltz burst onto the college scene in 2010 after hitting .396/.479/.771 with 24 home runs and earning first-team All-America honors as a freshman. His power production dropped off with the new bats in 2011, but he enjoyed a good tour in the Cape Cod League by hitting .321/.434/.457 with wood and remained one of St. John's top hitters in 2012. He was hitting .330/.416/.503 with six home runs and more walks (25) than strikeouts (18). His value lies in the bat. He has good bat speed and size (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) that produce above-average raw power. His approach should allow him to hit for average, but he's another college bat fighting the stigma of being a right-right corner player. Left field and first base are his only options, as he has a below-average arm, is a fringe runner and isn't overly athletic. A team that believes in his bat could take him in the fourth to sixth round.
