Esplin has an average arm and fringe-average speed, meaning that his most likely defensive home will be a corner outfield spot. To profile in left, he's going to have to mash. And so far, he has. Esplin is a lefthanded hitter with a compact stroke and a knack for hitting line drives. His strong, wide-hipped build and quick hands promise future power. Esplin, a Charlotte commit, opened eyes in March at the IMG Classic, when he hit a single and a double off pitching prospect Nick Storz in front of a large crowd of scouts. The development of his over-the-fence power will dictate his ceiling at the professional level. Esplin is also a legitimate pitching prospect for the collegiate level. He throws from an over-the-top arm slot and pitches at 88-91 in short bursts. He is committed to UNC-Charlotte.
