Patrick Leonard hit a crucial three-run homer in the Texas state 5-A private school championship game, helping St. Thomas win the title, the second for coach Craig Biggio since he retired from the Astros in 2009. Power is the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder's carrying tool, though scouts wonder how it will play against better competition. He doesn't hit good velocity or breaking balls, and his righthanded stroke is long and features a big uppercut. While he has arm strength, he doesn't have the hands or actions to remain at shortstop. A below-average runner, he may have to move to first base or the outfield. A Georgia recruit, he's considered a difficult sign.
