  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic frame with some remaining projection.

Hit: Starts slightly open and utilizes a big leg kick. Really utilizes his core and gets his hips into his swing. Needs to improve his approach. Contact skills were inconsistent at the amateur level mostly due to poor pitch recognition. There are questions about how he will handle velocity, especially up in the zone, against more advanced pitching.

Power: Above-average raw power. Power plays best to the pull side.

Run: Average speed.

Field: Played shortstop in high school, but likely profiles best at third base long-term. Smooth actions and soft hands, but range is his biggest question mark and could keep from sticking up the middle. Potential above-average defensive profile at third base.
  Arm: Plus arm. Was up to 94 mph on the mound in high school.

Career Notes: Committed to the University of Texas. Was a potential two-way prospect entering his senior year, throwing in the low-90s with a mid-80s slider, but established himself as an infield prospect by the time of the draft.

Summation: Wide range of outcomes depending on how his hit tool develops. Has everyday potential if everything breaks right. High-risk, high-reward prospect. Will already show power and potential on the defensive side. Didn’t play against the best competition in high school and struggled at times to make contact against better amateur arms, leaving questions about how he will adjust to professional pitching.

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