Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 45 | Run: 45 | Arm: 40 | Field: 45 | Overall: 45

Stewart took home Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year honors as a Florida State sophomore in 2014 after he led the conference in all three triple-slash categories. He followed it up with a strong junior campaign, and the Orioles nabbed him with the first of their two first-round picks in June. After a sluggish start to his pro career, Stewart revamped his swing and began to put it all together in 2017, totaling 21 homers and 20 steals in Double-A. His production was less consistent last season in Triple-A, and he also missed some time with a hamstring injury, but the Orioles still gave him a look as a September callup, a challenge to which Stewart responded by hitting .250 with three homers in 17 games.

The open, over-exaggerated crouch that Stewart employed at FSU has evolved into a more upright and closed-off stance as a pro. It's enabled him to make better use of his hands and wrists, helping him catch up to velocity and tap into some power, though, overall, his swing lacks versatility. Stewart's patient approach and strong on-base skills have long been strengths, and he offers value on the basepaths with his average speed. A good athlete despite his stocky build, he's a fringy defender at both outfielder corners, but profiles better in left field due to his below-average arm strength.

After his first taste of the Majors last season, Stewart is positioned to see even more playing time in 2019 as the Orioles continue their rebuild. An everyday role might be a stretch, given Stewart's overall profile, but he contributes in enough facets of the game to serve as useful bench player or a platoon option.
