Kevin Keyes is tied for the Texas team lead with 14 homers entering super-regional play, but he offers little beyond righthanded power and some arm strength. He has a long swing that most scouts don't believe will work with wood bats, and he's a well below-average defender in right field. He also has problems staying in shape (he carries more than his listed 225 pounds on his 6-foot-4 frame).
