Acosta led Southern California in home runs (7) and batting average (.319) while playing an impressive defensive center field this spring to jump on scouts’ radars. The lefthanded hitter has raw power, uses the whole field and jumps on mistakes, although his aggressive approach limits his walks and may leave him vulnerable against pro pitching. Acosta has fringe-average speed but runs down every ball in center field with tremendous instincts and quick lateral movements. None of Acosta’s individual tools jump off the page, but his overall package is attractive as a lefthanded-hitting center fielder with power.
