Scouting Report Update (4.2.20)

Physical Description: Athletic build. No remaining projection. Lacks strength.

Hit: Starts open with his hands high. Utilizes a leg lift timing device. Short stride. Long swing that drags through the zone. Struggles to make contact. Pitch recognition skills need significant work. Struggles to recognize spin out of the hand. Very aggressive with a lot of swing-and-miss.

Power: Not a part of his game. Extra base hits will come from line drives in the gap and his speed.

Run: Plus speed.

Field: Average defensive profile. Athleticism and speed make up for inconsistent reads and routes.

Arm: Average arm strength. Passable in center and left field, but light for right field.

Career Notes: Drafted in the 32nd round in 2016 by the Royals. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019.

Summation: Projects as a low-minors bench outfielder. Bat is really light. Too much swing-and-miss and no power to make up for the lack of contact skills. Defense and speed are best tools. Will have to make significant improvements to get out of the low minors.
