Scouting Report Update (4.2.20)
State of the System 2020: Noteworthy Extras (5.26.2020)

Physical Description: Undersized, thin frame. Minimal remaining projection.

Hit: Starts vertical and slightly open. Quiet swing mechanics. Short stride. Uses hands well in swing. Short, compact swing. Above-average bat control. Very direct to the ball, makes a lot of contact. Average bat speed. Will be challenged by velocity up in the zone. Recognizes spin. Aggressive but controlled approach. Potential average hit tool.

Power: No in-game power. Not a part of his game.

Run: Below-average speed. Strong baserunning instincts.

Field: Above-average defensive profile at both second and third base. Moves well, fluid actions. Soft hands, quick transfer from glove to throwing hand. Will be given the opportunitty to play some catcher beginning with the 2020 Fall Instructional League.

Arm: Average arm strength. Profiles best at second base, but is passable at third.

Career Notes: Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019. Gained his first exposure to catching in the Fall Instructional League in 2020.

Summation: Projects as a solid organizational utility player. Has the defensive ability to play all infield positions except shortstop and could probably fill in at a corner outfield position if necessary. Lacks a carrying tool, but combination of hitting ability and defensive versatility could keep him around the game for a long time. Very instinctual player, plus makeup.
