  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Thick, stocky build. Very strong and physical. No remaining projection.

Hit: Starts square and utilizes a leg kick timing device. Swing is relatively short and he has some feel for the strike zone. He does have swing-and-miss in his game and will have to show he can handle more advanced pitching after struggling in High A to start 2019. Velocity, especially up in the zone, is a challenge for him. Will have to show he can hit pitches in that area as he moves up the ladder.

Power: Plus-plus raw power. Power is more strength-based, but has shown the ability to impact the ball to all fields. How his power plays will depend on how his hit tool develops. Plus power potential.

Run: Well below-average speed. Not a part of his game.

Field: Below-average defensive profile. Lacks athleticism and fluidity. Profiles best at first base, but played a little bit in the corner outfield in 2017 after signing.
  Arm: Average arm strength.

Career
Notes: Led NJCAA Division II in batting average, slugging and on-base percentage in 2017. Was committed to Mississippi State, but the Rangers drafted and signed him. Started the 2019 season in High A, but was recalled to extended spring training on May 15. After a little over a month, reported to Low A and performed much better at a level at which he had spent the previous season.

Summation: Projects as an organizational depth bat. Has one carrying tool in his power, but does not project to add much defensive value and there are serious questions about how his hit tool will play against more advanced pitching.

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