  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Scouting Report: Undersized right-handed hitter who put up big numbers in junior college. Makes a lot of contact, rarely strikes out. Short swing, strong on-base skills. Has some speed. Profiles best at second base defensively.   Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
