LeMahieu is built tall and rangy, with a high waist and long, strong limbs. That frame allows him to get very good extension at the plate, and he controls the strike zone well, with the ability to go the other way. At the Aflac All-American Classic, all of the balls he put into play were to deep right field, showing his opposite field power and willingness to go with the pitches that were thrown to him. He is an advanced hitter with plus power. Defensively he is rather smooth at shortstop now, but his frame will likely call for a move to either third base or a corner outfield spot down the road. He has a strong enough arm to play anywhere on the field. A Midwest player from Michigan, LeMahieu has committed to play for LSU.
