A smooth swinger from the left side. Impressed with his feel and barrel awareness in the box. Swing is efficient and he should see easy increases in pop as natural tools progress with maturity. A contact type guy who can use the entire field. Look for him to make big jumps in measurables and pop as he matures. In the outfield he is mechanically sound and plays with confidence. Fields through the baseball well and maintains momentum into his throws. Talented overall prospect to follow.
