The New York Yankees First Round Draft Pick: Slade Heathcott

Slade Heathcott is a Senior Outfielder from Texas High School.

He is 6' 1" 196 lbs. who throws left handed and also bats left handed.

Heathcott is a good hitter that has plus power to all parts of the fields.

He runs with above-average speed, even with a knee brace.

He also shows that he has great instincts on the bases and will be a above-average base-stealer in the future.

He has been clocked at 95 mph pitching off the mound, which translate to a big outfield arm.

Heathcott torn his ACL and had surgery on it in November and has been playing with a knee brace but shows no bad side effects.

He also just recently sprained his shoulder diving for a ball in the outfield, but has no structural damage.

He is a 5- tool-er all the way, that competes at an intense level with instincts beyond his years.

Besides his ACL, his main weakness is his off-field issues bring some concern.

His makeup on the field is fine, but his character is the question.
