But this is a kid who, depending on the scouting report, is a 50-60 potential contact with 65-70 potential power and 60-70 plate discipline/eye and enough speed to swipe 10 bases.
Dave Kingman found a spot in the outfield. All this and he can't play the OF?

I am not saying you HAVE to pick Beer, but would you draft Miguel Cabrera over Stephen Drew or Tim Beckham?
Beer is no Miguel Cabrera.
“There were a few hard rules, but everybody was unique, and he understood that. George’s great strength was he didn’t overcoach. There’s no place for panic on the mound.” - Jim Palmer on George Bamberger “Arms and the man,” Sports Illustrated, April 19, 2004
