    Brockmeyer was the centerpiece of Bakersfield's lineup as a junior this spring, hitting .333/.419/.484 with four homers and 51 RBIs. At 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, he has plenty of strength and leverage in his swing, giving him average raw power. Despite the length in his swing and a high leg kick that leads to timing issues, he has a feel for the barrel and a decent approach, giving him a chance to be a fringe-average hitter. He's an adequate receiver but lacks mobility behind the plate. He has a loose arm but his arm stroke is not compact. Whoever drafts him will give him a shot behind the plate, but he'll probably wind up at first base.
