Adell's collection of tools might be the best of the entire draft class, drawing comparisons to Twins centerfielder Byron Buxton, the No. 2 pick in the 2012 draft, among others). The centerfielder's speed and power have drawn notice, as has his arm; he's been clocked at 97 mph from the outfield and is also considered a pitching prospect with a 92-94 mph fastball and 12-to-6 curve. His game skills are raw, generating concerns about his instincts in the outfield as well as his penchant for expanding the zone, but he gets high marks for makeup.
