Drafted 27th overall, Eric Brown is an exciting shortstop from Coastal Carolina. With average tools across the board, Brown projects as a solid regular.
Brown has a phenomenal ability to put bat to ball and has hit everywhere he's played. He doesn't have a lot of power, but may still develop into that. His set-up at the plate is a little different and reminds some of Craig Counsell.
Defensively, Brown was considered one of the best in the collegiate ranks. He's very quick and athletic enough to stick in the middle of the infield.
Says VP of domestic scouting, Tod Johnson, of Brown:
"It's his well-rounded game as far as being both an offensive contributor as well as, we think, a pretty good defender. We like guys that can stay in the middle of the field. And we love the kid. He's a good kid, as well, and a hard worker. All the stuff we have on his character is really good. We talked a lot with his coaches and that kind of thing and dug deep on that. So, pretty excited about all that, those parts of it. The combination of those things was what really pushed us there with him."
