projection, strong upper body.
slightly open and vertical. Starts with his hands high and uses a leg lift
timing device. Swing can get long and has fringe-average bat speed. Pitch
recognition is a work in progress. Really struggles recognizing spin and
making contact against plus velocity up in the zone. Swing has a slight
uppercut. Will take a walk. In the early stages of developing an approach.
Can get very pull happy. Potential well below-average hit tool.
Power: Above-average raw power, especially to the pull

skills limits his in-game power potential. Potential fringe-average game
Run: Below-average speed, not a part of his
Field: Profiles as a corner outfielder.
Lacks the speed for center field. Initial reads are a little slow at
times, but shows average defensive potential in the corners.
Arm: Below-average arm.
Notes: Drafted in the 29th round of the 2016 draft by the
Orioles. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020.

greatly limit ceiling. Will need to make major strides at the plate in
order to have success against more advanced pitching.
