Hodson has quite a few teams showing attention to his big imposing athletic frame and has only been playing baseball for 5 years. Some rawness to get out of him, but the strides are evident as he has a fluid path to produce power in his corner profile bat. With huge hand speed to get the bat started at 28.6 and bat speeds of 75.2, suggests that future whip and barrel release are in there to post 80+ in time. The EV of 93.6 also suggests that finding the barrel even more will result in some added exit speeds coming off his bat. During the game he squared up a ball for a 2B to LCF and made a nice pick at 3B on a tough in-between hop to get the runner at 1B.

A tall well defined physical build and looks the part of a player older than his years. Looks to continue to get stronger and continue to project a bit over the next few years. Intriguing sophomore that is off a good early start to his sophomore season through 7 games. Shows avg feet and hands with okay arm strength for his age, and does take an extra step into a shuffle-shuffle to get the ball underway from SS. The bat has a smooth fluid plane and squared it up consistently throughout BP. With 93 mph EV for a 16 year old, that's impressive and something to build from. One thing to correct with his weight transfer at the plate, is his first movement with his front foot after coming to square on his approach to the baseball, is forward. His hands stay back, which helps, but against better pitching, the game will speed up. Does need to get something going back to get even more punch in to the baseball. Intriguing player and one to keep an eye on.
