Stanford has always been accommodating to two-sport athletes and Gaffney is a backup running back on the Cardinal football team who rushed for 449 yards last season over 74 carries with seven touchdowns. His future, however, is as an outfielder and some scouts prefer Gaffney to his teammate Jake Stewart. At 6-foot-1 and 225 pounds, Gaffney has a wide, muscular build because of football, so there is some tightness and stiffness to his game. A career .299/.406/.424 hitter at Stanford, Gaffney has good patience at the plate. Despite his strength, he profiles as a line-drive, gap-to-gap hitter, which makes him a little tough to profile as an everyday corner outfielder. He could become a solid fourth outfielder.
