  Scouting Report & Links      
  Scouting Report: Highly-regarded international signing. Quick wrists, compact swing, above-average raw power. Good approach for his age. Will start at shortstop but may need to move to second or third base eventually. Average arm, average speed. Solid makeup.

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