Looking for the biggest power in the class? Look no further than Hinds, who packs a tremendous punch into his righthanded swing. His power is easily plus right now, and multiple evaluators say it could be 80-grade juice in the future. With a strong, 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame, Hinds muscles balls out to all fields with ease, though in-game he’s had real swing-and-miss issues that scouts will bear down on in the spring. Defensively, he’s got one of the strongest arms in the class from the left side of the infield, though he’s likely too big for shortstop already. He also has plenty of work to do in refining his glovework and improving his throwing accuracy on the run to stick at third base. Hinds is committed to Louisiana State.
