“There’s not a single tool Misner doesn’t possess, as he’s an above-average runner at 6-foot-4, 213 pounds and plays a solid center field with good instincts and an explosive first step. He also has above-average arm strength that should serve him well in right field, where his size likely allows him to fit best, and he has the plus-plus raw power necessary to profile in a corner outfield position. Scouts think Misner has an outstanding feel for the strike zone, but a passive approach has hurt him at times this spring, putting him in poor spots to hit with authority.” —Baseball America
“Scouts love his makeup as well.” —MLB Pipeline
Misner performed best for Mizzou during his sophomore season (2018), but missed the final six weeks due to a foot injury.
