  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Strong, athletic build. Some remaining projection, but already physically developed for his age. Looks listed height and weight.

Hit: Starts with an open stance. Short, compact swing. Quick hands. Does a good job utilizing his lower half. Will take what the pitcher gives him and use all fields. Does a decent job picking up breaking balls early. Has shown the ability to hang in against left-handers. Potential average hit tool.

Power: Plus raw power. Shows easy power during batting practice. Power is most notable to the pull side. Potential to develop above-average game power at his peak.

Run: Average speed. Aggressive on the basepaths. Gets good jumps and reads the game well when on the bases.

: Reads and first step need some development when playing center field. Won't be a standout defender, but should develop into an average outfielder at least. Whether he can stick in center field long-term or has to move to a corner, probably right field, is still to be determined.
  Arm: Average arm strength. Passable at all outfield positions. Arm is accurate, but lacks some zip at times.

Career Notes: Was committed to the University of Maryland. Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Potential average regular. If bat continues to develop, ceiling of an impact everyday player. Bat-first profile, likely destined for a corner outfield spot, but if he can stick in center field, his future value increases. Not physically imposing, but has strong instincts and plays hard, getting the most out of his tools.

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