Scouting Report

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

If adversity on the field is a great teacher, Bolt might have a master's degree by now. After a huge freshman season at North Carolina, the outfielder struggled as a sophomore and junior, but the A's rolled the dice on his raw tools and took him in the fourth round of the 2015 Draft. He struggled to hit for much of his first two-plus years as a pro and really scuffled with a move to Double-A to start the 2018 season. Bolt went back down to the California League, righted himself, then played his way on to the 40-man roster with a huge finish to the year, back in Double-A and a stint in the Arizona Fall League.

The A's always felt Bolt had the ability to succeed, but just hadn't been able to find the level of consistency to tap into his tools. He can hit for average and power from both sides of the plate, though the power really shows up left-handed (17 of his 19 homers in 2018 came from that side). He has enough speed to steal a base, and he finished just one home run and one steal shy of a 20-20 campaign last year.

Bolt has the speed and instincts to play center field and the strong arm to play right. He has the acumen to play all three outfield positions and he's likely to be a fourth outfielder in the big leagues. Now that he's starting to put it together on a daily basis, though, don't rule out Bolt finding a regular spot in the lineup.
