Mitchell was a solid high school prospect at Orange Lutheran in California, one who was firmly in the middle of the Draft Top 100 in 2017. As toolsy as they come, concerns about his ability to tap into those tools consistently and his commitment to UCLA led to him not being selected until the 14th round (by the A's). He started to make good on his potential during a strong sophomore season with the Bruins, though he didn't get a chance to show what he could do with Team USA after a leg injury forced him off the Collegiate National Team. He wasn’t fully cleared last fall, but he still impressed scouts with his batting practice sessions, and he had all tools on display this spring.

Mitchell has made real strides with his swing, one of the concerns when he was coming out of high school. He hit consistently for the first time in 2019 and he was doing it again during his junior season. He showed plus power in BP and his ability to transfer that to games makes him one of the top picks in the country. Big and strong, Mitchell is an easily plus runner who can steal bases and cover a ton of ground in center field, a premium position he'll be able to play long term with the chance to develop into at least an above-average defender in time.

Mitchell has been playing with Type 1 diabetes since being diagnosed in third grade and has shown he can be a premium athlete while dealing with the disease. Armed with perhaps the best collection of tools in this Draft class, the team taking him will be the one that believes he will be able to use those tools consistently in games at the pro level.

Mitchell was a solid high school prospect at Orange Lutheran in California, one who was firmly in the middle of the Draft Top 100 in 2017. As toolsy as they come, concerns about his ability to tap into those tools consistently and his commitment to UCLA led to him not being selected until the 14th round (by the A's).

He wasn't fully cleared last fall, but he still impressed scouts with his batting practice sessions, and he had all tools on display early in his junior year. The Brewers understandably were thrilled to land Mitchell, whom MLB Pipeline had ranked as the sixth-best 2020 Draft prospect, with the 20th-overall pick and signed him for slot value. 

Mitchell has made real strides with his left-handed swing, one of the concerns when he was coming out of high school. He hit consistently for the first time in 2019 and he was doing it again during his junior season. He showed plus power in BP and his ability to transfer that to games helped him to become one of the top prospects in the country. Big and strong, Mitchell is an easily plus runner who can steal bases and cover a ton of ground in center field, a premium position he'll be able to play long term with the chance to develop into at least an above-average defender in time. 

Mitchell has been playing with Type 1 diabetes since being diagnosed in third grade and has shown he can be a premium athlete while dealing with the disease. He featured perhaps the best collection of tools in the entire 2020 Draft class, and the Brewers believe he will be able to use those tools consistently in games at the pro level.
