Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 30 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Read finally began to capitalize on his offensive potential during the second half of the 2016 season, and he broke out in earnest the following year by hitting .265 with a career-high 17 homers in his first Double-A campaign. He finished the season in the Major Leagues, collecting three hits in 11 at-bats, and was named the club's Bob Boone Award winner after the season on the merits of his leadership and professionalism. All of his progress came to a halt in 2018, however, as Read received a season-opening 80-game suspension after a positive offseason test for the steroid Boldenone, and he struggled at the plate between Double-A and Triple-A upon returning.

Read has a mature approach and natural hitting ability, with a short right-handed swing that produces contact to all fields as well as above-average raw power. However, the game power Read showed in 2017 wasn't there last year, prompting some to speculate that his power potential may have been inflated by the performance-enhancing drug. But scouts still generally view him as a decent hitter who makes a lot of contact and understands the strike zone.

Behind the plate, Read's above-average arm strength and solid catch-and-throw skills have helped him throw out 36.7 percent of attempted basestealers in his career through 2018. His defense could be above-average with further improvements, which, when combined with Read's hitting ability, portend to a backup role in the big leagues.
