The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Barton might have been a candidate for the first round if his body didn't resemble that of short, squatty big leaguer Matt Stairs. Barton can flat-out hit. He has one of the best lefthanded bats in the draft and can hit for both average and power. He is short to the ball and balanced throughout his swing. His skills behind the plate are only fringe average, and he has spent most of the season at third base--his coach's son has claimed most of the playing time behind the plate. Barton profiles as an American League player, and the Rangers have reportedly focused on him in the second round.
