Scouting Report: Lean, lanky build. Smooth, compact swing, but presently hits with a lot of upper body. Solid-average power projection. Brings head of the bat quickly through zone. Needs improvement creating plate coverage with his swing. Tends to open hips early to pull off the ball. Moves well laterally on defense, with quick reactions and solid body control. Strong arm, but slow releasing the ball and coming out of his crouch. Projects to stay behind the plate in the near-term. Could eventually grow off the position.
