The 6-foot, 185-pound Swim has been an everyday player for the Phoenix since he walked on campus, starting 165 games in three seasons. He burst onto the scene as a freshman, hitting .310/.342/.403. His bat cooled as a sophomore, but he bounced back in 2012 by hitting .361/.402/.454 in 227 at-bats. His bat is light, but he handles it well. He is very difficult to strike out, fanning just 39 times in his career. Scouts take interest because he provides solid defense behind the plate. He has a strong arm that could improve with a shorter release. He runs a tick above-average and could be a fourth outfielder if he doesn't stick behind the plate.
