Scouting Reports:

Baseball America

Panas makes up for his lack of plus tools with a lack of weaknesses. A graduate of the Toronto Mets club program, Panas is as polished as college players come.

He’s a lefthanded hitter with fringe-average bat speed and a good understanding of what he’s able to do, though he can sometimes expand the strike zone. He is able to drive mistakes a long way, though his power is closer to fringe than it is average.

Panas is 6-foot, 215 pounds and plays passable defense at third base, showing quick feet and an average arm. He is a slightly below-average runner out of the box.

Overall, Panas’ lack of major weaknesses will entice a team to give him a chance, especially as a senior who has four years of performance under his belt.
