  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Already physically developed for his age. Has some projection remaining, mainly in the upper body, where he should continue to get stronger. Will need to watch his body to make sure he doesn't lose any athleticism as he matures.

Hit: Starts square and utilizes a leg kick. Loose at the plate. Will shorten up with two strikes. Good bat angle. Above-average bat speed. Bat will take some time to develop, but already shows advanced feel for hit for someone his age. Potential above-average hit tool.

Power: Will show average raw power in batting practice. Could take some time to translate into game action. Power is primarily to the pull side at present, but given feel for hit, should develop all-fields power.

Run: Average speed. Won't be a huge threat to steal bases, but could grab a few due to strong baserunning instincts.

Field: Soft hands, fluid actions in the field. Strong instincts for his age. Reads the game well; rarely lets the ball play him. Plays the game with some flair in the field. Potential to develop into an above-average-to-plus defender.
  Arm: Plus arm strength. Capable of making all the throws necessary from the left side of the infield.

Career
Notes: Had some trouble staying healthy in 2018, missing extended time due to "general soreness" after being promoted stateside from the DSL, then pulling his hamstring in his second game after returning, leading to a second absence. Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Potential regular at shortstop. Wide gap between what he is now and what he could be in the future. Lacks a standout tool, but could develop a plethora of average to above-average tools. Strong instincts for his age allow tools to play up. One of the most intriguing prospects in the system, and with a strong showing during the 2019 season could quickly become one of the top prospects in the system.

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