Scouting Scratch: Late-round 2017 draftees (8.28.17)

Physical Description: Undersized with minimal remaining physical projection. Average athlete, strong lower half.

Hit: Contact oriented swing, Bat will never be a strength of his despite a solid approach and decent contact skills. Recognizes pitches well and has a good idea of the strike zone. Uses all fields.

Power: Minimal raw power. Doesn’t project for much if any in-game over the fence power. Gap power at best.

Arm: Fringe arm for shortstop. Passable at all infield positions, but doesn’t have a standout arm. Throws lack carry at times.

Field: Strong defensive profile. Shows solid footwork and fluid actions at the position. Soft hands and quick transfer and release. Above-average range to both sides. Aggressive on charging balls in front of him. Good instincts and takes good angles. Potential solid-average defender capable of sticking at shortstop.

Run: Average speed. Not a major part of his game.

Career Notes: Named Honorable Mention All-Pac 12 in 2016 and All-Pac 12 in 2017.

Summation: Glove-first shortstop who projects as an organizational player. Chances of developing into more depend on his ability to develop at the plate. Will never have power, but could make enough contact to hit for an empty average and stay in the lineup due to his defensive profile.
