Scouting report: Michael Choice, Chris Bostick

By Richard Durrett

I talked to a few scouts and got essentially the same takes on both Michael Choice and Chris Bostick. Here's one scout's thoughts (that reflect the others I talked with):

Choice has big raw power, impressive bat speed and a good approach. He will strike out, but also draws walks and sees pitches. He has a fringe arm, but a good athlete for his size. He's a better fit for left field.

Bostick profiles as a second baseman. He has an average glove and average speed, but really good bat to ball skills. He has a good overall feel for hitting. He's not an impact guy, but a good hitter with a chance.
