Duran does two things. He gets on base, and he flies. A three-year starter at Long Beach State, Duran stole 47 bases in his career and drove opponents crazy beating out routine ground balls for infield singles. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound lefthanded hitter explodes out of the batter's box, posting 70-grade run times on the 20-to-80 scouting scale, and turns singles into doubles and doubles into triples. He lacks over-the-fence power and swings and misses a little much for his profile, but his patient approach gets him on base enough to utilize his speed. Duran never played shortstop at Long Beach State and is an average second baseman with a fringy arm. Some evaluators think he is a candidate to move to center field, but he's very raw there due to lack of experience. Duran's speed gives him a survivable skill he can ride to the big leagues, and evaluators see enough bat for him to be a bottom-of-the-order hitter. He projects to go early on the draft's second day.
