  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Athletic, average frame. Needs to add strength and physically mature.

Hit: Starts square with his hands high. Slight leg lift. Loose hands. Compact, level swing. Strong feel for hit.

Power: Gap-to-gap power right now. Can create back spin, but needs to add strength to tap into his power.

Run: Above-average speed.

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.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
