Servideo played out of position in deference to 2019 second-round pick Grae Kessinger the past two years at Ole Miss, bouncing between right field, center field and second base. This was Servideo’s year to take over at shortstop, and like many Rebels shortstops before him, he bleached his hair, transforming his brown hair with a shaggy blonde flow. It’s hard to argue with the results. Servideo showed significantly more strength and power, cranking five home runs in 59 at-bats, after hitting four in his first two seasons combined. His .390/.575/.695 start to the season helped erase the memories of his awful 2019 summer in the Cape Cod League, where he hit only .149/.277/.228 with a wood bat. Servideo’s offensive emergence is significant because scouts were already comfortable with his defense. He’s one of the best defensive shortstops in college baseball. A plus runner, Servideo has the first-step quickness, footwork and hands to be a plus defender at shortstop and he has an above-average arm that lets him plant and fire on balls to his right. Servideo is small at 5-foot-10, 170 pounds but his strong start to the spring at the plate and no-doubt ability to play shortstop will likely push him into third-round consideration.
