Physical Description: Tall,
lean frame. Quick-twitch athlete. Athleticism stands out on the
field. Has room to add strength in his upper body.
Hit: Starts square and utilizes a toe tap
timing device. Very simple swing mechanics. Short, direct swing.
Quick hands. Aggressive, attacks early in the count. Looks to
put the ball in play with hard line drives to all fields, will
take what the pitcher gives him. Potential above-average hit
Power: Below-average power
potential. Will run into a few home runs per year, but swing
isn't geared for over-the-fence power. Double and triple numbers
will be inflated by speed rather than by power. However, changed
initial setup, having started from a wide stance before coming
up and back at Long Beach State to now starting more upright,
which has allowed him to at least tap into more gap-to-gap power
Run: Plus-plus speed.
Potential difference maker on the bases. Needs to refine
basestealing instincts, but has the type of speed that puts
immense pressure on the defense.
Potential above-average defender. Needs work in the outfield to
reach that potential because he is raw, having just been
introduced to the position. Converted to the outfield in pro
ball and showed a slow first step in center field, struggling
with initial reads. Was able to make up for that due to his
speed, but clearly wasn't comfortable. Moved to right field in
Greenville, where line to plate is similar to second base, which
should help acclimation to the outfield. Long-term, has the
speed and athleticism teams covet for center field. At second
base, showed soft hands and fluid actions, though athleticism
Arm: Fringe-average arm strength. Arm doesn't
standout, but is passable in left field or center field.
Career Notes: Led his high
school team to a state title his sophomore year. Put together a
strong season for Wareham in the 2017 Cape Cod Summer League.
Made it to the Super Regionals with Long Beach in 2017. Played
second base in college, transitioned to outfield quickly after
being drafted. Performed at a much higher level in his pro debut
than even the organization was expecting. Participated in the
Fall Instructional League in 2018.
Potential everyday player if everything breaks right. At the
plate, needs to continue to refine approach, but has shown
strong contact ability. With his speed, has the potential to put
a lot of pressure on the defense and inflate his average through
infield singles. Over-the-fence power won't be a major part of
his game, but could steal 30-plus bases if he improves his
instincts and gets enough playing time. Lack of power limits
upside some, but if he makes enough contact for his speed to
play, it won’t matter. Value would be highest if he takes to
center field eventually and develops into even an average
defender there. Has one surefire major league impact tool in his
speed and will show three other average tools. Very intriguing
player with a reasonably high floor due to speed and defensive
