Scouting Report

WATCH

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 60 | Run: 40 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 50

Teams always look for raw power when scouting for any Draft, so many were interested in Hinds, who had spent all of last summer clearing fences on the showcase circuit. He showed legitimate pop during his senior season at IMG Academy, and questions about his ability to make contact hurt his value a bit, but the Reds clearly believed he'll hit enough to tap into that plus tool by giving him an above pick value bonus of nearly $1.8 million to sign as a second-round pick.

Hinds has a history of performing on big stages, including Major League Baseball's High School Home Run Derby during All-Star Weekend. It's not just batting practice power, as Hinds did hit two homers during his stint at the Tournament of Stars last summer. But with that power came with it a lot of swing and miss, with scouts worrying about his pitch recognition, particularly his ability to pick up spin. Ideally, Hinds will be able to stick at third, where his power bat would profile well. He does have enough arm for the spot, though the jury is still out whether he can man the hot corner long-term. While he's much better on quick, reactive plays, he struggles when he has time to worry about his footwork. He has seen some time in the outfield, but that hasn't gone well.

One scout compared Hinds defensively to Phillies prospect Alec Bohm, who was the No. 3 overall pick in last year's Draft. Bohm was a Futures Gamer for the Phillies in 2019 and the Reds would be thrilled if Hinds can develop into that kind of prospect.
