Scouting Report: Third baseman with strong lower half and room to fill out upper body. Sweet swing from the left side. Excellent bat speed and hip rotation in swing mechanics. Upward swing path through hitting zone and creates solid extension to produce backspin when squaring offerings up. Shows ability to drive the ball to all fields with lift. Potential plus-to-better hit tool. Slightly above-average power potential. Excellent strike zone judgment and discipline. Still can struggle with breaking balls. Solid-average speed, but not likely to be a factor as he continues to physically develop. Played shortstop and second base in high school, but transitioned to third base as a professional. Soft hands. Needs improvement with reads off of bat. Can be stiff and slow with reactions. Plus arm. Tools to become an average defender at the hot corner. High baseball IQ. Quick learner and makes adjustments. Ceiling of an All-Star caliber third baseman.
