They say guys who hit always find a place to play. Callihan, who swung the bat consistently well all summer, is now putting that to the test. A member of USA Baseball's 18-and-Under National team that took home a gold medal at the Pan American Championships in Panama, Callihan started this spring a little slowly, but his bat came as his senior season wore on. The Reds took his bat in the third round, giving him almost $1.5 million to sign him away from his South Carolina commitment, more than twice the pick value.

Strong and stocky, Callihan has shown an innate ability to barrel up the baseball, both at a number of elite-level events over the summer, as well as this spring, with an advanced approach from the left side of the plate. He has legitimate raw power he's already tapping into, hitting two home runs, along with a .528 average during Team USA's gold medal run. He's a better athlete than you might think, though he is a below-average runner. The big question surrounding Callihan is where he'll fit defensively. He does have the chance to stick at third, with enough arm and the bat to profile there, though some worry about his range.

The Reds announced Callihan as a second baseman when he was drafted, and he played there and the hot corner during his pro debut in the rookie-level Appalachian League. Wherever he lands defensively, it's his bat that will allow him to climb the organizational ladder.
