Cole is a switch-hitter with a power-oriented approach and swing. There's some length to the path and he uses a big leg kick to get his timing and weight transferred, so there's some understandable concern about how much contact he'll make against advanced pitching. But he has hit .329/.416/.545 with 12 home runs this year. His approach does pay off in above-average power that could entice a team to draft him. He's strictly a corner outfielder.
