Scouting Report Update (3.27.20)

Scouting Report: Strong, filled-out frame with broad shoulders. No remaining projection. Quiet approach with a subtle toe tap. Uppercut swing path. Quick wrists. Overall average hit tool with solid plate discipline. Does not strike out a lot. Has shown solid-average raw power which has only translated to fringey in-game power. Fringe-average speed, but runs well for his size and position. Can take an extra base. Solid fielder at first base. A work-in-progress in the outfield with potential for improvement with better reads. Above-average arm. Pitched for the Mexican national team before signing with the Braves in 2011. Completely retooled his approach upon joining the Phillies organization in 2018. Was able to pull the ball more and get it into the air, increasing his fly ball rate considerably. Resulted in an International League MVP season in 2018. Signed with Orix Blue Wave of Nippon Professional Baseball for 2019 season. Received one-year suspension from NPB for testing positive for anabolic steroids after playing in 29 games for Orix. Re-signed with the organization prior to becoming a minor league free agent in 2020. Profiles as emergency high-minors depth.

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