Decent swing. Presently doesn’t show a ton of raw power but moves well and the ball jumped well for his age. Young guy to keep an eye on.

Run: 7.35 60 yard dash.

Defensive Projection: Showed better polish in the outfield than the infield. Still showed well enough to be a guy that could move around the diamond at the high school level.


Body Type: 5-foot-8 160-pound prospect.

Showed pretty solid stuff for a 2022. Present pitch mix would better lend itself to the bullpen. Showed fairly good movement patterns in his delivery that should help him gain velocity as he matures and add strength.
