Stevens floated under the radar in his first two seasons at Portland, but came out of the gate hitting during the abbreviated 2020 season, with a .299/.373/.493 slash line, a home run and 16 RBIs in 16 games before the season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year he was even better, hitting .333/.402/.547 with a career-best eight home runs, 29 RBIs and 12 stolen bases while showing the ability to play almost anywhere on the diamond defensively. A strong athlete at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, some evaluators believe Stevens could play shortstop in the lower minors before moving over to third base, with a solid-average arm at the hot corner. Stevens hadn’t shown much power before this season, but began to tap into some juice in 2021. He now shows power to all fields, with above-average raw juice. Stevens shows the ability to hit gap to gap, with an average hit tool, although he’ll need to cut down on his swing and miss. Stevens is a fringe-average runner, but he has strong baseball instincts.
