Capel has drawn mixed reviews both on the showcase circuit and this spring. Evaluators who like him are impressed by his athleticism, bat control, his ability to use the whole field and his potentially above-average hit tool from the left side. Capel puts together competitive at-bats with a solid approach, but his swing has little loft. He hits more ground balls than line drives, significantly limiting his power potential, and he doesn't have exceptional bat speed. Capel is a 60 runner who has a shot to stick in center field and he has an above-average arm. His best role is as a table-setting leadoff hitter. Capel is old for the class--he turns 19 before the draft. He's a Texas signee, but his game draws comparisons to former Texas A&M and current Indians center fielder Tyler Naquin.
