Scouting Report: Solid hit tool from the left side with the ability to hit to all fields. Has shown advanced plate discipline and willingness to take a walk. Average power potential from his quick wrists, but does not have a tremendously strong frame and will need to show whether he has the strength to be more than a line-drive hitter as a professional. Best tool is well-above-average-to-plus speed. Solid-average range and glove in center field with an above-average arm. Underwent surgery to repare a broken hamate bone in his right hand prior to senior season. High ceiling, toolsy player with a lot of projection. Had been committed to Georgia Southern.


Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
