Scouting Report: Left-handed hitter with a huge frame. Listed at 6-foot-4, 240 pounds. Frame lacks projection, but is very strong and surprisingly athletic for his size. Advanced for a high school bat. Has shown feel for hit and plus-to-better raw power. Power plays to all fields and has a selective approach. Has had some trouble making contact in the past and will need to show he can consistently make contact and close the holes in his swing to tap into his raw power. Reportedly has put up some of the highest exit velocities in the high school class. Defensively, Casas currently plays third base, but there are significant questions on if he can stick there long-term. Has a plus arm that will play at third and has touched the low-90s off the mound. Questions surround his glove and if he canít stick at third he will have to move to first base. Future upside depends on how much he hits, especially if he ends up at first base long term. If he hits like he has the potential to, bat will play anywhere on the diamond. Has excelled in showcase events and he led Team USA in home runs and RBI on the way to winning the MVP of the U-18 Baseball World Cup. Attended the same high school as former Red Sox draft picks CJ Chatham, Shaun Anderson, and Deven Marrero. Committed to the University of Miami.  Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2018.
