  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Tall, projectable lanky frame. Athletic with the type of physical projection you look for in a prospect.

Hit: Short, linear swing. Makes a lot of contact and has shown strong bat-to-ball skills. Above-average bat speed. Makes a lot of contact on the ground. Pull-heavy approach at present. Passive at the plate, taking a lot of pitches, but also will expand the zone and struggles to recognize spin.

Power: Fringe-average raw power at present. Should grow into more raw power as he physically matures and gets stronger. Will need to add some loft to his swing in order to reach his power potential.

Run: Average speed.

Field: Routes and reads need work. Profiles best in an outfield corner.

Arm: Average arm strength.
  Career Notes: Received Boston's highest bonus in its 2019-2020 international class. Participated in 2020 Fall Instructional League. Split time between center and right field in DSL debut while sharing those positions with Jhostynxon Garcia.

Summation: Raw, physically projectable outfielder. Does not have a strong defensive profile, so there is a lot of pressure on his bat to develop. Wide gap between what he is now and could be in the future. Has the type of frame you look for when projecting future development.

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