Flyers Let Early Lead Slip Away, Lose to Capitals

The Player

A big and physical outfielder and first baseman with a 6-foot-6, 211-pound frame. Condon was named Baseball America’s freshman of the year. After he led all freshman hitters with a .800 slugging percentage and hit 25 home runs.

His 2023 season was one of the best seasons in Georgia history. He led to an invite to Team USA’s college national team, where he hit .256/.302/.538 with three home runs in 10 games.

Condon has a power-over-hit offensive profile with long levers and some swing-and-miss questions about spin and off-speed stuff. But he’s shown more than enough impact ability with huge raw power and averaged nearly 94 mph in exit velocity as a freshman.

 Most of his power has gone to the pull-side, but he should have the power for all-field juice. While he played first base mostly as a freshman, he could get looks in the outfield for the Bulldogs in 2024.

 Condon is already viewed as one of the better sluggers in the class. A strong follow-up campaign as a draft-eligible sophomore will only cement that status.
