Roederer is a small, athletic, lefthanded-hitting center fielder who began showing big power this year, drawing Andrew Benintendi comparisons. He catapulted into third-round consideration before he separated his right (non-throwing) shoulder horsing around with teammates after practice and missed the final month of the season. Roederer is a toolsy player with bat speed who got stronger and reworked his swing to add power this season. He began launching long home runs on par with anyone in the region, enough for optimistic scouts to project him as a 20-25 home run hitter. The power rounded out Roederer's well-rounded toolset. He is an above-average runner whose speed plays up in center field due to his advanced instincts and reads, and his arm is suitably average. With hints of all five tools and growing power, Roederer has the upside of an above-average everyday center fielder, but some scouts are skeptical of his size and injury history, which also includes a pulled hamstring this year. He is strongly committed to UCLA and will be an expensive sign.
