Landry batted .328 with eight homers, 51 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 80 games for Class A Rancho Cucamonga and has some decent upside at age 22.
Landry has made some adjustments to his approach and swing. It's resulted in a drop in strikeouts and a rise in walks while consistently putting the ball in play.
Power: His numbers don't show it because he's been so focused on putting the ball in play, but he does have some juice in his bat. He should generate some power in the future.
Running speed: Toe surgery last fall slowed him for a bit, but he'll be at least a solid-average runner.
Base running: He can use his speed well on the basepaths.
Arm strength: He has a below-average arm.
Fielding: An infielder in high school, he seamlessly made the switch to outfield as a freshman. He should be able stick in center field.
