  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  PPhysical Description: Looks the part. Strong, sturdy frame. Surprisingly athletic for his size. No remaining projection.

Hit:
Starts square with his hands high. Short, compact swing. Very direct to the ball. Average bat speed. Knows the strike zone and will take a walk. Has feel for hit, but has some swing-and-miss in his game. Uses all fields. Makes a lot of hard contact. Potential average hit tool.

Power:
Average raw power. Game power plays below that due to lack of loft in swing. Will hit a handful of home runs per year, but primarily will show gap power.

Arm:
Fringe-average arm strength. Passable in the corner outfield, but doesn’t stand out there and best suited for left field.

Field:
Shows soft hands and confidence scooping throws in the dirt at first base. Average range in the outfield and will make routine plays. Has more defensive upside at first base, where he could be a potential above-average defender. Profiles as an average defender at best in the outfield.
  Run: Below-average speed. Instincts will allow him to steal a few bases a year.

Career Notes: One of the most productive college hitters in the country in 2018 and semi-finalist for the 2018 Dick Howser Trophy awarded to the top player in collegiate baseball. Was seen as one of the better senior signs available in the 2018 draft. Began college career at Creighton before transferring to Cisco College, a Texas JuCo, for his sophomore season, then to Dallas Baptist. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2018.

Summation: Potential organizational type. Ceiling of an emergency up and down player. Lacks a carrying tool, but gets the most out of what he has. Good approach, makes contact and has some power. Very instinctual player with great makeup. Defensive versatility will be key as bat doesn’t profile great at either first base or in the corner outfield.
