Scouting Report

A 5-foot-11, 183-pound outfielder, third baseman and catcher with an athletic, strong frame.  Defensively he showed soft hands, fluid footwork, and a clean exchange in the outfield with a positional velocity of 83 mph with a long arm action, over the top release and accuracy on throws. On the infield he showed third base type feet, with solid hands and arm strength across the diamond with carry on throws. As a catcher he shows a nice presence behind the plate with some stiffness in the hips and hands, but displays quality arm strength that resulted in a pop time of 2.12 seconds.  Right-handed hitter with a balanced, athletic setup with little to no load, short stride and explosive lower half. Shows a short path with quality extension, gap to gap approach with juice to the pull side and quality bat speed that produced an 87 mph exit velocity. Also posted a 7.00 60 yard dash.
