Scouting Report: Medium frame with fast-twitch muscle and above-average athleticism. Fluid swing that shows developing leverage to the point of contact. Quick hands. Smooth load and little wasted movement. Hands stay in position to hit, with separation during stride. Above-average bat speed. Presently a line-drive hitter. Potential to develop average power as he matures. In the early stages of developing an approach, but shows willingness to see pitches. Below-average present pitch recognition. Likes to attack the ball early in the count. Swing can get long. Needs to work on going to all fields. Moderate projection for physical growth. Not likely to overly impact athleticism. Body could use added strength to enhance offensive tools. Plus-plus speed. Accelerates well out of the box and shows another gear when going first-to-third. Fringe-average arm. Reads the ball off the bat well in center field. Graceful when tracking fly balls and shows understanding of how to take precise routes. Ability to stick in center. Plus range, with potential to round into above-average defender. Beginning to learn the professional game. Strong instincts. Ceiling of a top-of-the-order hitter on first-division team. Will take time to develop.
