Physical Description: Thick, physically mature frame.
Very strong already. Minimal projection remaining.
Starts with a wide base. Utilizes a short leg lift. Long swing. Very
rudimentary approach. Pitch recognition skills are very basic. Needs to
improve contact skills.
Power: Plus-plus raw
power. Generates massive raw power due to his strength. Has shown the
ability already to drive the ball out of the ballpark. Power is almost
exclusively to the pull side.
below-average speed already and likely will get slower as he gets older.

Arm: Average arm
Tied for DSL Red Sox
program lead with 9 home runs in 2019, the most hit by a Red Sox DSL
player since at least 2006, the last year for which DSL statistics are
available. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019.
Very volatile prospect with a bat first-profile. Does not project to add value defensively, so future
projection is all tied up in his bat. Wide range of outcomes, high-risk
prospect. Has among the best raw power of anyone in the system. Has to
show he can make enough contact in order for his power to play in-game.
Unclear how he will handle more advanced pitching. Step up to the Gulf
Coast League will be a good test for him.
State of the System: Corner Infielders (4.22.20)
