Average, athletic frame. Minimal remaining projection.
Hit: Starts slightly open with his bat on his
shoulder. Has some bat speed. Will take a walk, puts together
professional at-bats. Swing-and-miss has increased as he has
attempted to hit for more power. Adjusted his approach in 2019,
which has had good results in a small sample. Shows flashes of
an average hit tool.
Fringe-average power potential. Swing adjustment added loft in
2019. Showed substantial power in a very friendly hitter's
league, will have to show those changes are real all the way up
Run: Average speed.
Field: Average defensive profile. Sure-handed.
Solid footwork, quick transfer, makes flashy plays. Range
remains a question mark, and was error-prone on occasion in the
past. Has already played second base, third base, and shortstop
in pro ball and played some corner outfield in college as well.
Arm: Average arm strength. Quick release.
Passable at all infield positions, but arm would be tested if
forced into a full-time role at either shortstop or third base.
Career Notes: Impressed in the Cape League
in 2018. Was a well-regarded prospect heading into the 2019
college season, but struggled at the plate with UC Irvine early
on and fell to the 12th round. Continued to make swing
adjustments over 2019, resulting in a nice showing in the
Pioneer League that season, where he was old for the level. Was
acquired for LHP Yoan Aybar in a deal made in part to free up a
40-man roster spot during the 2020-21 offseason.
Summation: Potential utility infielder. Has a high
floor due to his defensive tools and versatility. Needs to show
offensive tools in a less hitter-friendly, more age-appropriate
