Bakst was a key player on last summer's 18U National Team, playing the infield and providing power in the team's lineup. Last summer, his best tool was his powerful righthanded bat; he squared up the ball with authority often, smashing doubles as well as home runs. He swings aggressively and is prone to swinging and missing. This spring, Bakst got off to a slow start at the National High School Invitational in front of many high-level evaluators. There are also questions about where Bakst fits defensively. He envisions himself at shortstop long term, but he lacks the smooth actions and quick feet usually found at the position, leading some to project him to play third base or a corner outfield position. Bakst comes from an affluent family and lifestyle, and values his education. He is committed to Stanford and is likely to get there.
