Westlake very well may have some of the best power in this draft, but the fact that he has had trouble translating that into games will be the main reason he slides down team’s boards on draft day.
He’s been much better as of late, and he’s now up to 13 home runs on the season to go along with a .360 average and 43 RBI.
Playing at Vanderbilt has its advantages, and whichever team ends up with Westlake will be getting a very polished bat with a great eye at the plate. They’ll also be getting a pretty solid defender who has made only four errors all season at first base.
As for his power-outage this season, the new bats are partly to blame, but with only 14 home runs last season, it’s not like he was on pace to set any records anyway
