Having slashed .351/.399/.513 in the Cape Cod League last summer, Bohm entered the spring as a first round candidate. Throughout the first half of the collegiate season, he’s only improved his stock, showing advanced feel for the strike zone – walking twice as much has he’s struck out – paired with prodigious power, and uncommon athleticism for his size.
Athletically built with broad shoulders and a narrow waist, Bohm is an average runner with above average first step quickness. His range at the hot corner is augmented by his vast wingspan, but his footwork upon his exchange and throw can be a bit clunky. His arm is above average, with enough carry across the diamond, though the inconsistent fundamentals caused several throws to sail during the viewing. Bohm is a dangerous hitter at the plate, with double plus raw power to all fields, and the ability to control the barrel within the zone. As one would expect from a hitter with such long levers, there’s some length to Bohm’s swing, but he displayed the ability to pull his hands in to get to pitching on the inner half of the plate.
While Bohm provides more value if he can remain at third base, he’d profile nicely as a power hitting first baseman should the need for a move arise. With the draft two months away, Bohm is currently performing like a top 10 overall pick.
