Honors:

  • 2007 Cape Cod League All-Star

Strengths:
Beckham made big improvements in his sophomore year for the Bulldogs and in the Cape Cod League. He’s a slightly above-average runner and a steady glove. A best case scenario pencils him as a starting big league shortstop.

Weaknesses:
His solid power numbers aren’t expected to translate to wood and he does have enough bat speed to be a good gap hitter.

The Future:
Mid to late first round.
