Comments: For a player to profile at first, teams will typically want to see plenty of power and run production potential. Barnum, a Florida prep product, has both.A big, strong physical specimen, Barnum can generate a lot of bat speed and has the ability to drive the ball to all parts of the ballpark. He shows most of his home run power to the pull side, but there’s plenty of raw pop there all-around. Barnum’s fine defensively at first, and some have even asked to see him play an outfield corner.Like many young hitters with power, Barnum will get long with his swing at times and try to muscle the ball out. The ability to make adjustments and have a more refined approach will likely come with time and experience.
