power right now. Can create back spin, but needs to add strength
to tap into his power.
Field: Soft hands,
smooth actions. Good instincts in the field, reads the game
well. Played both infield and outfield in high school. Expected
to get opportunities at catcher in 2022.
Arm: Average arm.
Career Notes: Committed to San
Diego State. Went to high school less than two miles from 2021
first-round pick Marcelo Meyer's high school.
Summation: Long-term projection play at shortstop. Has
some feel on both sides of the ball, but a long way to go
developmentally. Lacks a standout tool, but does not really have
a tool that is lacking either. Competitive, smart player. Will
work hard to get the most out of his ability.
