  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Medium frame with minimal remaining projection. Below-average athlete.

Hit: Starts with a wide base and utilizes a toe tap timing device. Unique swing mechanics that can easily get out of sync. Swing can get long. Uppercut swing path. Free swinger with below-average pitch recognition. Will need to make refinements to adjust to more advanced pitching up the ladder.

Power: Above-average raw power. Power is primarily to the pull side at present.

Run: Below-average runner. Will not a major part of his game.

Field: Best suited for left field. Lacks athleticism and takes inconsistent reads and routes. Potential fringe-average defender,
  Arm: Average arm.

Career Notes:
Signed in August 2019, days before his 17th birthday. FCL All-Star in 2021. Participated in the 2021 Fall Performance Program. Missed three months of 2022 with an adductor injury followed by an illness that stalled his rehab. Played in a pair of FCL rehab games before being shut down for the season.

Summation: Projects as an organizational player whose value comes at the plate. Lacks defensive value and there are questions about how his swing and approach will play against more advanced competition. Has some upside at the plate, but will have to show it all the way up the ladder.
