Scouting Report

2017 Spring Scout Blog:  Stout, athletically aggressive prospect with a frame that should continue to develop prototypical corner infield size with a left side arm. Stands 6-foot-3, 200 pounds with a strong lower-half. High offensive power projection and some athleticism for his size and age. Offensively has a more balanced and athletic stance than we've seen in the past. High leg kick and an uphill swing plane. Fast bat that gets to extension. Everything is pull-side currently. In the field has a tendency to get flat-footed and sit back on groundballs causing some stiffness and indecision. Throws from a high 3/4 slot and throws have carry. High follow with potential to be the top offensive power prospect in the 2020 class. 

9/18/16: The freshman already possesses a strong build at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds. Offensively, the RHH showcased physicality with present pull-side power for his age. He hits from a tall, open setup, using a slight leg. Gets good use of his lower half, getting off his backside. Does have a tendency to over-rotate. Possesses quick bat speed for a 2020. Advanced approach, regularly got to extension in BP. Swing path is uphill, creating lift. Ball jumps off his bat. Fluid rhythm. High exit velocity of 87. Projects as a corner INF defensively. At 3B showcased good glove work. Plays through the baseball well with some athleticism. Moves well for his size. Ran a 7.27-60.
