Isbel has been a key member of UNLV's lineup since arriving on campus and has started all but three games during his career. He has managed to take a step forward this spring, as he has increased both his power and walk rate. Isbel had a .093 ISO last summer in the Cape Cod League, but this spring he's hit double-digit home runs for the first time in his career and added about 200 points to his ISO. Scouts must determine how much of that power increase is driven by the hitter-friendly environments of the Mountain West Conference, but he does pack more of a punch into his lefthanded swing than his frame (5-foot-11, 190 pounds) suggests. He is an above-average runner and uses his speed well on the base paths. Isbel is a solid outfielder and handles center field well, but some evaluators believe he would profile better at second base, where he played early in his career. Isbel has a hard-nosed approach to the game and that helps his mostly average tools play up.
