Matt Chapman's Player Profile

Hit / On-base The biggest question mark for Chapman is the hit tool, as theres a ton of swing and miss to his game particularly against better breaking stuff and he has a tendency to get a bit pull happy as well.

Power Im not sure if any hitter in the class has more raw power from the right side than Chapman as hes got plenty of strength and bat speed and Ive seen some mammoth shots both in batting practice.

Speed Speed is not really a part of Chapmans game, but he wont remind anyone of a Molina when hes on base.

Glove I had a couple of mixed reports of Chapman on defense, but I saw a guy with a 70 arm (hes hit 98 on a gun from the mound) and with good footwork and the necessary athleticism to be very good there. If he loses some athleticism he could be forced to move across the diamond, but I think thats probably a ways away, if at all.
