Long, lean build showing young muscle with high waist and length in arms and legs on medium frame; projectable frame with athletic ability. Runs well with some quickness in the first step showing average stride length (7.22 60-yd). Showed quick transitions from the glove with snap throws from a compact arm that projects to keep improving in future (1.94-2.02 pop; 73 MPH); athleticism in the body allows for the ability to get to knees quickly keeping the ball in front of him. Offensively works with a balanced stance keeping hands high with flared elbows and slight wiggle of hands; slight foot lift loading into back hip as hands turn the barrel to pitcher. Short, quick barrel with the ability to control bat head finishing high around ears; ability to create leverage on the ball flashing power to both gaps (81 exit velo).

Scouting Report

1/27/19 - PBR N CA Preseason All-State - Long, Medium frame with high waist and tight muscles in upper half showing projectability in frame for more growth; runs high with average stride length (7.69 60-yd). Narrow set up showing higher posture with athleticism to get out of stance and into legs; smooth transition from glove to throw hand and quick release. Times where upper/lower half are working out of sync and small adjustments will help lower pop times (2.11-2.26 pop, 71 MPH). Narrow stance with high back elbow and even hands; big leg lift with ability to sink into lower half as hands pull back/down in load. Bat is quick flashing pull side drive and more into the gaps when bat finishes on a slightly upward path; projectable swing with full body turns (86 exit velo).

Raw skills currently and if he can improve his overall athleticism, could make big jumps quickly.
