Mikie Mahtook -
12-23-9 fr. http://baseballdraftreport.com/ - SO OF Mikie Mahtook (2011) projects to do just about everything well at the big league level. His tools all grade out as above-average or better, but the gap between where some of his skills currently are and where they ultimately need to be is substantial. Mahtook has made steady progress narrowing that gap since enrolling at LSU, but his performance this spring will be heavily scrutinized by scouts expecting big things out of the potential 2011 first rounder. Mahtook is a plus athlete with above-average raw power, above-average speed, a strong arm, and the potential to play an above-average centerfield as a professional.

7-4 from: - http://pnrscouting.com/articles_teamusacollegiate_trialroster_07042010.html - Mikie Mahtook, LSU’s right fielder this Spring, has the athleticism and footspeed to hold down center next Spring, but would likely stay in right for the Summer with the likes of Bradley and Cone in the mix (in addition to Dugas and Martini). Mahtook shows good arm strength big power potential and a solid ability to draw walks, though he can at times get overly aggressive and still swings-and-misses a little too much.

Louisiana St. Univ. - Trials Notes: Mahtook is an impressive physical specimen, with a broad, strong, tapered upper-body, high waist and solid core. He moves well from gap line and clocked a 3.63 second third-to-home on a tag, but needs to improve his quickness out of the box (4.41 seconds) and his lines on the bases (he's inefficient moving home-to-second, first-to-third and second-to-home). He flashed some solid reads off the bat and closes fairly well -- it may not be a stretch to see him get a shot in center for LSU in the Spring. With JBJ and Springer on the squad, however, he's likely to spend most of the time this summer at a corner. At the plate, Mahtook has big power potential, but is still working to center the ball consistently with wood. Once he gets more comfortable wielding the lumber, he could produce plus power and a solid average off the strength of his hands and core. Right now, he has a few holes in his swing and can get a little long, but the ball jumps when he squares. Ideally, Mahtook develops into an above-average power bat and defender at an outfield corner with good speed and arm strength. He will be draft eligible in 2011.
