Scouting Report: Polished high school shortstop who will play that position initially, but will likely move to second base or third base eventually. Hits from an open stance that closes upon approach. Utilizes a toe-tap timing device and has a short, compact swing. Quick hands and loose at the plate. Possesses plus bat speed and solid-average to plus power potential. May have had best hit tool in 2014 draft class. Doesn’t have a frame that stands out, but good athlete for his size. Slightly above-average runner. Plus arm, quick first-step and fluid actions in the field. Great clubhouse guy. Product of the prestigious East Cobb baseball program.
