Scouting Report Update (7.29.2020)

Physical Description: Undersized, average frame. Lacks physical projection.

Hit
: Starts open and utilizes a leg kick. Short, compact swing. Contact oriented approach. Rarely strikes out, will take a walk. Has some feel at the plate, doesn’t try to do too much. Understands the strike zone and has shown some ability to recognize spin. Potential fringe-average hit tool.

Power: Well below-average raw power. No game power. Gap power at best, but doesn’t project every to have over the fence power as a part of his game.

Arm: Fringe-average arm strength.

Field: Potential average defender. Able to profile well at second, third, and short. Soft hands, strong instincts.

Run: Below-average speed. Strong instincts, but not a major stolen base threat.

Career Notes: Senior sign. Also pitched in high school.

Summation: Potential minor league infield depth type. Lacks any major league-quality carrying tool. Doesn’t have a high ceiling, but useful player to have in the system. Has played primarily second and shortstop through his first two years, and held his own hitting at the bottom of the lineup. Handles himself professionally, type of player every team needs to fill out their rosters in the minor leagues.
