Brodie Greene is a versatile collegiate player from Texas A&M University. Greene originally came to Texas A&M from Bullard High School in Bullard, Texas, which is near Tyler in East Texas. He’s the first meaningful prospect to ever come from that school. He wasn’t heavily scouted in high school, so he went undrafted, but he started playing a meaningful role on the Aggies early on. As a freshman, most of his playing time came in right field. During that year, he was the definition of a part-time player, though, he did produce very solid numbers. As a sophomore, he split most of his time between the outfield corners, and while he helped his power numbers, he went through a bit of a sophomore slump. As a junior, though, he moved to second base and made himself into one of the best collegiate second basemen in the country. He was expected to go in the top five or six rounds last June, but he fell to the late rounds because of his desire to return for his senior year. While he started out his senior year as the starting center fielder, he moved to shortstop out of necessity, and it’s been a fairly successful transition, which has led most scouts think of him as a possible super-utility player. He’s an average hitter because he has trouble hitting breaking balls and doesn’t work the count, and his power is slightly below-average. However, his speed is plus, and his range in center field and at second base is above-average for both positions. His arm is average, and while he doesn’t profile well at shortstop, he could be a solid prospect and land somewhere between rounds seven and twelve as a signable senior.
