  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Large, filled-out frame. Powerful lower half. Looks the part.

Hit: Starts slightly open and has a leg kick timing device. Very quick wrists. Gets good torque from his lower half. Swing can get long. Swing is strength-based. Pitch recognition is a major issue. Will expand the zone and struggles to pick up secondary pitches early. In the early stages of developing an approach and has a lot of swing-and-miss in his game already. Potential below-average hit tool.

Power: Plus raw power. Can really drive the ball, especially to the pull side against left-handed pitchers. Above-average game power potential.

Run: Below-average speed. Will likely get slower as he matures physically.

Field: Fringe-average defensive profile. Will need to maintain his athleticism to stick in right field long-term.

Arm: Fringe-average arm strength. Profiles best in left field, but passable in right.
  Career Notes: Signed to the third-highest bonus in Red Sox 2018 international free agent class. Showed significant home run pop in the DSL in 2019. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020.

Summation: Potential bat-first, platoon corner outfielder. Long way to go developmentally and has some potential, but also has a low floor. Needs to develop an approach and show he has enough hit tool to be able to tap into his power. Has had more success against lefties early in his career and will need to show he can handle advanced right-handed pitching. Has upside due to his power and you can dream on him becoming an MLB regular if everything breaks right.
