Comments
Hitting Ability:Good solid bat with power potential.
Power:Dominguez's power grades out as average to a tick above, with some room for growth.
Running Speed:He's fairly athletic, but speed isn't one of his better tools.
Arm Strength:His arm graded out as average at the showcase.
Arm Accuracy:Again, an average skill, but he's got enough arm to stay at third base.
Fielding:He's played some shortstop in high school, but will be too big to stay there at the next level. He should be a capapble third baseman.
Baseball Instinct:Dominguez is a real "baseball player" who plays the game the right way.
Physical Description:Big, strong corner infield type with room for growth. Has drawn comparisons to Travis Fryman
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Bat, especially power. Dominguez showed a little more pop at the showcase than he had in the past.
Weaknesses:Tools. He's solid average across the board, at least, but doesn't have one skill that overwhelms.
Summary:While teammate Mike Moustakas has been getting more buzz lately because of his torrid home run pace, Dominguez’ skills should not be overlooked. He, too, can hit for power and should hit for average as well. At the same time, he’s considered to be one of the better defensive third baseman to come out of a draft in a long time. The whole package should make him a first round pick.
