Hoskins had a strong start and a big finish that could push him back into the first five rounds. A Sacramento high school product, he's a physical 6-foot-4, 225-pound corner bat who could play left field but likely will wind up at first base. He's a slow-twitch athlete who has plus raw power thanks to his strength and feel for hitting.
