A Scout's Take // Travis Buck, Oakland Athletics' 23-year-old Outfielder

May 27, 2007

Strengths -- High energy. He's very aggressive, runs well and plays good defense. He has a good eye. He won't have better-than-average power, but that's still pretty good. He is a fun guy to watch. Fans will like him because of the way he plays.

Comparison -- He reminds me of Eric Byrnes with a better way about him. Byrnes, to me, has always played like his uniform is on fire. With this guy, you don't really get that feeling.

Ceiling -- He'll be a pretty good, solid, everyday guy. A contributing player. He's going to be an everyday player, but I don't think he is a go-to guy.
