This article is a very good overview by Steve Carter of the presumptive Number 1 pick in the 2011 draft, Anthony Rendon. We've all heard about him, but this piece gives us a lot of information from the scouts' perspectives. Part 2 goes into much more detail about his swing, as well.
The first piece's conclusion:
To reiterate what Veteran Scout said earlier: "Plus power, plus hit tool, plus arm, solid glove" and a mechanically fantastic swing to boot. On top of all that, he adds in outstanding patience at the plate. He doesn't just dictate the at-bat the second he walks into the box, he rules it with an iron fist. Rendon has a great understanding of the strike zone, is disciplined, and has the swing built to optimize pitch tracking, quickness and raw bat speed. He has everything needed to be an all-star level player in the Major Leagues and has earned every bit of his candidacy to go No. 1 overall in the 2011 draft.
Both pieces are very positive about his future potential. He'll be a great talent to add to the system.
