Player Profile: Bryce Brentz
Bryce Brentz OF Middle Tennessee St
6-0 185 lbs Bats: R Throws: R
Drafted as a pitcher out of high school in the 30th round by the Cleveland Indians, Bryce entered college and his hitting ability went to the forefront. Although he has a 93 mph fastball his ability with the bat is more impressive.
A good hitter with power to all fields, Bryce has a short compact stroke that makes him an above average hitter. His biggest weakness is being overly aggressive at the plate with an all or nothing approach that makes for being streaky at times. Although not a classic home run hitter at this point he has a strong body and may develop more home run capacity.
He is a good defender that predominately plays RF with average range and the strong arm mentioned earlier.
His season was slowed this year by an ankle injury which he has recovered from and has come back to pitch and play the outfield successfully.
