A 34th-round pick in 2011 out of Ohlone (Calif.) JC, Tella fits the center-field profile. The 6-foot, 175-pounder bats lefthanded and is a plus runner who repeats his short swing. He sees a lot of pitches and needs to improve his two-strike approach to fulfill his potential as a leadoff threat. The eligible sophomore has shown surprising pop and has an above-average arm, leading to some comparisons to former Auburn outfielder Clete Thomas.
