Williams-Sutton has been on teams' radars since high school, and he was drafted by the Reds in the 26th round in 2015, but he's never quite become the player that his toolset suggests he could at East Carolina. An athletic outfielder with a powerful, 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame, Williams-Sutton stands out for his plus raw power, but that hasn't translated into games as much as teams would like. His bat can get slow at times, and it's an uphill bat path that has failed to produce double-digit home runs. Williams-Sutton has struggled to stay on the field with various nagging injuries, but this spring he's posted his best statistical line since getting to Greenville, hitting .343/.493/.619 with 20 walks and 26 strikeouts. Aside from his 60-grade raw power, Williams-Sutton's tools are average across the board.
