  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, athletic frame with minimal remaining projection.

Hit: Short, direct swing. Has shown the ability to hit velocity, but will always have swing-and-miss in his game. Struggles with pitch recognition, especially against breaking balls. Approach is a work in progress.

Power: Has flashed over-the-fence power in college, but swing is more designed for hard contact in the gaps.

Run: Above-average speed. Able to steal a base and take the extra base. Speed plays in the field as well.

Field: Average defensive profile. Likely best suited for the corners, but should be passable in center field as well.

Arm: Average arm strength.
  Career Notes: Started his college career at New Mexico, where he played both ways, but transferred after his freshman year to Pima Community College. Drafted by the Diamondbacks in the 33rd round of the 2019 draft. Did not sign and went to TCU for the 2020 season. Developed into one of the best players on the team in 2021 and was named First Team All-Big 12.

Summation: Solid organizational player profile. Solid in all aspects of the game, but lacks a carrying tool.

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