Scouting Report
: Left-handed batter, hits with an open stance that he closes on pitch approach while employing a timing tap. He's a little loud at the plate with some waving of his hands during his stance. Finishes with a two-handed follow through up around his back, a bit of an uppercut swing. Excellent plate discipline, doesn't jump out at balls, tracks pitches right into the glove. He uncoils with his swing and has a shorter stroke. The ball comes off his bat well - he doesn't create a lot of lift, but hits through the ball with a little top spin.  Should excel, even against more advanced pitching.  Average power potential. Below average speed. Intelligent. Solid defensively, picks errant throws well.
