Bohm spent his time in the instructional league working on his defense, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports. Bohm hit a mediocre .252/.335/.324 in 40 games split across the three lowest levels of the minors in an injury-shortened first professional season. His bigger problems came on the defensive side of the ball, where he committed 10 errors and posted an .884 fielding percentage. That adds to the already-significant concerns that he'll be able to stick at third base, as only two players (Kris Bryant and Troy Glaus) 6-foot-5 or taller have ever played 200 games at the position in the majors. Bohm's bat obviously becomes less exciting at first base, though pre-draft evaluations suggested that it's strong enough to profile there as well.
Bohm (knee) was activated from the minor-league disabled list Monday. Bohm went 0-for-4 in his first game back with short-season Williamsport after spending more than a month on the disabled list with a knee injury. The 22-year-old is hitting just .179/.270/.196 through 15 games with the Crosscutters this season.
Bohm was placed on the minor-league disabled list Saturday after getting hit on the knee by a pitch, MiLB.com reports. The pitch apparently struck a nerve, leaving Bohm in a walking boot and sending him to visit a specialist. The issue appears to be more serious than a simple bruise, though a timeline for his return has not yet been established. The third pick in this year's draft was hitting a modest .250/.342/.297 in 18 games of rookie-league and short-season ball prior to the injury.
