Spillane is a big kid for his age, and has a lot of power potential and a plus arm. That’s a good combination at third base, although it does raise questions about how much he will grow over the next few years, and whether he will be able to stick at third in the long-term. His arm is a great tool defensively, with his throws from third clocked at 91 MPH, and throws from the outfield clocked at 93. He’s got a lot of raw power, and can even hit for power with wood bats. He’s athletic, moving well on the field, and running the bases well, showing that size isn’t currently an issue. He’s got a commitment to Illinois.
