A three-year starter at Michigan who was named to the 2019 College World Series all-tournament team, Blomgren is a steady performer with a solid track record. He has has average tools across the board except for power, which he lacks, but he gets the most from what he has. At the plate, Blomgren has a flat swing geared toward hitting line drives up the middle. He relies on making consistent contact rather than trying to hit for power and is primarily a singles hitter who drives the occasional extra-base hit. Blomgren has shown a solid ability to take walks and posted .399 on-base percentage in his college career, although he does have some stiffness to his swing and has been prone to striking out against better pitchers. Defensively, Blomgren is a sure-handed shortstop who makes all the routine plays with average arm strength and range. Scouts are drawn to his game thanks to a quiet, workmanlike demeanor, and those who know him praise his makeup and toughness. While Blomgren doesn’t offer much upside, he projects to stick at shortstop and has performed his whole career.
