  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Strong, athletic build. Quick twitch athlete. Looks the part. Minimal remaining projection.

Hit: Starts open and vertical with his hands high. Loud pre-pitch with a slight hitch late in his load. Medium high-leg kick. Above-average bat speed. Will take a walk, but also strikes out a lot. Strikes stem somewhat from swing-and-miss in his game, but also from his approach where he works a lot of deep counts. Potential below-average hit tool.

Power: Above-average raw power. Swing has natural loft and can really drive the ball to the pull side. Potential average in-game power.

Run: Average speed.

Field: Scouts think he profiles best in a corner outfield position. Could be an average defender in right field, but projects as below-average in center field.
  Arm: Plus arm.

Career Notes: Did not sign until two years after he was eligible. Implemented an adjustment to his swing over the lost 2020 season.

Summation: Intriguing prospect; development of hit tool will determine his long-term potential. Has the ceiling of a fringe regular, but also comes with risk. Has power and will take a walk, but needs to cut down on his swing-and-miss and improve his bat-to-ball skills.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
