Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 65 | Power: 55 | Run: 60 | Arm: 60 | Field: 60 | Overall: 65

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 Draft, Senzel seemed poised to complete his relatively brief time in player development during 2018, only to be delayed by injuries. First, he missed time with a bout of vertigo in May and then came a fractured right index finger that required season-ending surgery in June. Bone spurs in his elbow cut short his fall work as well. But there was a lot to like in the short amount of time that Senzel did play.

Senzel is an athletic player whose bat is just about ready for the highest level. That's not surprising given he was billed as the top pure hitter in his Draft class. Originally a third baseman out of Tennessee, he can handle the hot corner and he also has the makings of an above-average second baseman. He got some reps in center and left field during instructs as the Reds continue to look for ways to get his bat into the big league lineup soon, as he is blocked at second and third.

When healthy, Senzel uses a combination of strength and bat speed, along with an advanced approach at the plate, to be an extremely dangerous hitter from the right side. He makes consistent hard contact, doesn't strike out a lot and draws walks, which points to a future of hitting over .300 and perhaps competing for batting titles. He could debut as an everyday utility player until a permanent spot opens for him.
