WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Bishop is a power/speed outfielder who should be able to stay in center.  He was also a star at football and track.  Bishop is a good base stealer and has an average arm.  He focuses on hitting for power at the plate, which has led to contact issues against better competition, but his above-average bat speed could help him make adjustments.  Baseball America ranked him 88th among draft prospects and MLB Pipeline 94th.  Bishop had a commitment to Arkansas.  He was expected to be tough to sign, but the Pirates managed to get a deal done even after spending a lot of above-slot money on their top picks.
