Jared Hoying is a riddle. Scouts don't like his ugly lefthanded swing, which doesn't incorporate his lower half, but acknowledge his strength and tremendous bat speed. The combination results in a hitter who runs hot and cold, as evidenced by his career .284 average and 34 homers in three seasons. He has had success with wood bats, leading the Great Lakes League with a .750 slugging percentage last summer. Hoying has average speed and a strong arm, though repeated throwing errors dictated a move from shortstop to center field at midseason. The 6-foot-3, 189-pounder projects as a third baseman or right fielder in pro ball.
