  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Smaller, undersized frame. Minimal remaining projection.

Hit: Starts slightly open with his hands high. Very brief leg lift and short stride. Simple swing mechanics. Short swing that is fluid and direct to the ball. Makes a lot of contact and has an advanced approach. Walked more than he struck out in college.

Power: Below-average power potential. Not a major part of his game. Swing is designed for line drives in the gap.

Run: Fringe-average speed.

Field: Soft hands, fluid actions. Profiles best at second base.

Arm: Average arm strength.
  Career Notes: Young for a college junior. All-WCC First Team in 2022. Played in the Cape Cod League in 2022 for Yarmouth-Dennis. Missed most of the 2021 season with an injury.

Summation: Will have to hit, but has shown strong contact skills and advanced approach. Young for the college draft class and combination of age, contact skills and approach grade out really well on models.

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