The son of Rafael Palmeiro, Preston doesn't have a 3,000-hit, 500-homer ceiling. He does have a sweet lefthanded swing and a solid college performance track record. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder came on late in his junior season, ranking among the top 50 in the country with 20 doubles. His power is mostly to the gaps, but he has some bat speed, can jump a fastball and is an intelligent hitter. He has a tough profile at first base without big home run power, but he's a below-average runner, which may preclude a move to left field.
