Field: Likely to stick at shortstop if he does not grow

range and fields the position with some flair. Comfortable
throwing from different angles. Potential plus defender.
Arm: Plus arm strength.
Notes: Participated in the 2021 Fall Performance

that also caused him to miss roughly the first month of the FCL

Program that was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian.
Summation: Defense-first profile right now, with future
upside tied up in how he physically matures and how his bat
develops. At the moment, he is raw with a wide gap between what
he is and what he could be.
