Brizuela has been a three-year starter and a vital cog in Florida State's lineup. The lefthanded hitter will have to hit his way to the majors because his other tools are a bit short. Scouts who like Brizuela value him in the first 10 rounds, while others see him as more of a senior sign. Currently a third baseman, he has above-average arm strength but his throws can get erratic, as can his glove. His long-term defensive position is likely left field, though some would like to see him try second base before moving off the dirt. Brizuela is a below-average runner who is better under way. He is a natural line-drive hitter to multiple fields. He has worked to add loft but will likely produce below-average power, with just nine career home runs despite playing in a hitter's park. He has a solid approach and on-base ability. The 6-foot, 200-pounder has a solid, sturdy build and a natural feel for the game.
