Scouting Scratch (9.11.17)
Notes from the Field (4.27.18)

Physical Description: Tall and lean with long limbs. Has projection remaining, especially in his upper body, where he will need to add strength. Looks the part.

Hit: Slightly open stance and uses a leg-lift timing device. Long swing with a stiff upper body. Lacks pitch recognition skills, which results in significant swing-and-miss issues, especially on secondary offerings. Rarely walks. Likes to cheat and open his front side early in order to get out in front of fastballs. Average bat speed. Long way to go at the plate. In the early makings of developing an approach, has yet to show the ability to use all fields.

Power: Plus raw power, mainly to the pull side. Likes the ball middle-in and will make pitchers pay for mistakes, especially on the inner half. Issues with hit tool risk preventing him from getting to his power in games.

Run: Below-average speed. As he physically matures could end up slower than that.

Field: Lacks athleticism and fluidity in the outfield. Needs to work on reads. Defensive profile best suited for left field.

Arm: Fringe-average arm. Shows good strength, but poor accuracy. Best suited for left field.

Career Notes: Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2018. After beginning year in Salem in 2019, was demoted to Greenville and then again to Extended Spring Training after being overmatched at the plate at both levels.

Summation: Intriguing prospect with a very wide gap between what he is at present and could be in the future. Still very raw, and time is running out for him to begin to develop raw tools into on-field skills. Power is best tool. Has some of the best raw power in the system's low minors. Lack of defensive potential and athleticism put a lot of pressure on his bat. Needs to make significant improvements with his approach and contact skills in order to get out of the low minors, but if he can make strides at the plate, he has upside.
