Larry Greene gets a few hard contact shots off in this BP round. His left-handed power will be his top tool.
He starts with a square stance, gets into a closed stride with a little bit of a toe-tap load, then gives a swing plane with an uppercut and a two-hand finish and a wrap. I saw balls pulled to right field at 390 feet and in this round, he did nothing but try to turn and burn on every ball no matter where it was. He’s got the makings of an aggressive free-swinger and he was listed at 6-1, 230 in the summer, which means he’ll need to watch his body. He was a 3 runner and I went 4 on the arm, so the picture becomes clear on what kind of player this projects to become pretty quickly. Keep on swinging the bat and go to left field enough to be dangerous, and someone will always take a chance on left-handed power.
