Physical Description: Small, quick twitch athlete. Lacks strength, skinny at present. Looks listed height and weight of 5-foot-10, 155 pounds. Some projection as he physically matures.

Hit: Switch hitter, starts open and utilizes toe-tap timing device when hitting left-handed and leg lift when hitting right-handed. Left-handed swing is short and tends to chop down on the ball. Has quick hands, but bat drags some due to lack of strength. Solid bat control.

Power: Minimal power at present. Lacks strength, unlikely to be part of his game even in his peak.

Arm: Average arm strength. Could be more in there, but havenít seen him show it off in game.

Field: Soft hands, fluid in the field. Comfortable charging the ball and has shown range to both sides.

Run: Plus speed.

Career Notes: Particpated in 2016 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Will flash average tools across the board except for power. Very young and needs to physically mature, but if that comes and he doesnít lose any athleticism could become interesting due to defensive potential at shortstop in addition to some feel for hit and plus speed.
