Tool Time: Top Ten Power Hitters
Honorable Mention Bobby Malek: Two years removed from elbow surgery, Malek rediscovered his power stroke in 2004, hitting 14 home runs last season after hitting just 3 long balls in 2003. Malek hit 16 home runs his last year at Michigan State and the progression to the wooden bat and the recovery from arm surgery have gone a little slower than expected. Once ranking atop the collegiate outfield rankings with the likes of Nick Swisher, Malek could make a Swisher-like leap in the power department as soon as 2005. Malek has the potential to develop into a J.D. Drew type of power hitter. Brett Harper: Like Malek, Harper's power game came alive in 2004. With just 5 career home runs entering the year last season, Harper hit 17 dingers in three minor league stops on his way to a career year. The one knock on his offensive game prior to last year was the lack of power while playing a corner position. He'll be out in 2005 to prove that last year's fantastic season was not a fluke...
