Year   Team       AB   AVG   OBP   SLG   XBH%   ISO   2B+3B   BB%   K%          
2006   South Carolina       239   .259   .348   .368   27%   .109   13   10.7%   13.2%

Strengths:
Havens has a strong arm and has been a solid defender at South Carolina. He hit .314/.371/.487 in the Cape Cod League.

Weaknesses:
Havens’ stats are unimpressive. He strikes out at a high rate, doesn’t hit for power and regressed from his freshman to sophomore years. Havens doesn’t have the range to stay at shortstop and may move to third base or catcher.

The Future:
The team that drafts Havens will likely play him at catcher, probably between the second and fifth rounds.
