11. Tyler Moore, 1B
DOB: 1/30/87
Height/Weight: 6-2/185
Bats/Throws: R/R
Drafted/Signed: 16th round, 2008, Mississippi State University
2011 Stats: .270/.314/.532 at Double-A (137 G)
Tools Profile: Power, and that's about it.

Year in Review: Last year's breakout performer proved himself at the upper levels by leading the Eastern League in home runs, extra base hits, and total bases.
The Good: Moore has plus-plus power and is capable of hitting balls out of any part of any park. He's a surprisingly solid defender with soft hands at first base, doing an excellent job picking balls out of the dirt. He gets lauded for his makeup and effort level.
The Bad: While Moore's platoon splits are not concerning, his numbers do look better due to his ability to crush left-handers. He's far too aggressive at the plate and does not adjust when behind in the count. He's a non-athlete who does not run very well.
Ephemera: Moore made five errors in the first 18 games of the 2011 season, followed by just three in his final 119.
Perfect World Projection: Second-division starter.
Fantasy Impact: Home runs will be the only category he provides value in, but he could hit 30-plus.
Path to the Big Leagues: Moore's path to Washington is a bit muddled, and it's hard to figure out how the Nationals will work things with both he and former first-round pick Chris Marrero (who is equally limited athletically) set for Triple-A.
ETA: 2013
