BA's top prospect on the Braves.

SCOUTING REPORT: Hiura has a compact, powerful stroke with tremendous bat speed and the hand-eye coordination to barrel up pitches consistently. With so few moving parts in his swing, he should be able to avoid long droughts. Though not a power hitter per se, he has explosive hands and enough pop to project to be above-average in that department, with an approach of hitting to all fields. Hiura projects to hit for a high average with good power for the position. Though not a threat to steal bases, he is an average runner and shows good instincts and awareness on the basepaths and has shown the ability to take a bag when opponents aren’t paying attention. Hiura merely will have to hold his own in the field, where he has shown improvement since turning pro, with decent footwork and range. His calling card is his bat, and it’s a good one.

I can't say I saw the "explosive hands" in Arizona but I saw enough to be impressed. Tim not so much. (In the archive.)
