Tall and strong frame with some physical projection remaining.
Looks bigger than listed height and weight.
Slightly open stance. Starts with his bat level over his
shoulder. Quiet upper body upon pitch approach. Prominent toe
tap timing device. Swing is on the long side, but he has some
feel. Needs to refine his approach and cut down on the
swing-and-miss in his game. Potential well-below-average hit
Power: Plus raw power. Can impact
the baseball and has loft in his swing. As he physically
matures, could increase to plus-plus raw power. In-game power
potential is closer to average due to questionable hit tool.
Run: Well-below-average speed. Not fast.
Could get slower as he physically matures.
Average defensive profile. Soft hands, not bad at first base.
Below-average range for the outfield. Spent most of the 2019
season in right field, but also saw limited lime in left field,
center field, and at first base. Played primarily first base at
the 2020 Fall Instructional League.
Arm: Potential plus arm. Accuracy needs some
work, but has plenty of arm for right field. Had three outfield
assists in 2019.
Career Notes: Signed a
few months prior to his 19th birthday, late for an international
signing. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019
Summation: Bat-first corner
profile with a wide range of potential outcomes. High floor, low
ceiling. If he can make contact and better tap into his huge raw
power, he becomes more intriguing. Likely best suited for first
base long-term, but has the arm to play right outfield as well,
though his lack of foot speed could be an issue in the outfield.
