Heyward is an exciting power prospect who is athletic enough to handle a corner outfield spot, but could be a perennial Gold-Glover at first. He has long, strong limbs that creates natural extension, yet he has more of a gap-to-gap, line drive approach. Despite his size, he controls the strike zone very well, and when he leanrs to add more loft and spin on his swings, he could be a perennial 30-home run threat at the highest of levels and a natural run producer hitting in the middle of a lineup. In addition to his offensive prowess, he also has very good speed for his size and a strong throwing arm. Heyward would be similar to a left-handed hitting version of Derrek Lee. He doesn't turn 18 until next August.
