  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Medium, athletic build. Lots of projection remaining. Needs to add strength.

Hit: Switch hitter. Small toe tap timing device. From the left side, wrists start at chin level, coming down on approach. Wrists start lower from the right side. Swing can be inconsistent at times, but at its best is smooth with a good weight transfer from back to front. Solid approach for his age. Knows the strike zone and is selective. Will take a walk, but can get overly passive at times. Struggles with velocity right now due to lack of strength. Has struggled from the right side early in his pro career. Potential average hit tool.

Power: Below-average present in-game power. Swing is more geared towards hard line drives in the gap. Shows some pop in batting practice. Potential fringe-average in-game power if he fills out his frame.

Run: Fringe-average runner. Not a major part of his game. Plays faster due to solid instincts.

Field: Fluid movements in the outfield with good instincts. Likely destined for a corner long-term, but might be able to play a passable center field.

  Arm: Average arm.

Career Notes:
Received largest bonus of Boston's 2018 international free agent class. Struggled out of the gate in the Dominican Summer League in 2019, but ended the season strong. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020. Reported to Salem in June 2021 after opening the season in extended spring training, but was limited to just nine games at the level and two more on a rehab assignment due to an unspecified injury that may have been to his left hand/wrist. Participated in the 2021 Fall Performance Program. Missed the first two weeks of the 2022 season due to an injury and had two other IL stints of 10-14 days during the course of the year.

Summation: Potential organizational outfielder. Low floor, but has a chance to develop into at least an MLB reserve. Has been injured relatively often early in his career and needs to show he can stay on the field. Has a good feel for the game for his age, solid overall instincts, and a high baseball IQ.
