Scouting Report


6-foot-1, 165-pound right hand hitting OF/RHP. At the plate he stands open with a long stride to come square.  Lower half is solid through the zone creating good pull side power.  Swing is long with extension out front.  Exit velocity was 85 MPH.  In the field he comes through the ball and stays square on his delivery.  Very athletic and uses his speed to close the gap on balls. Arm is accurate to the bag.  Arm velocity was 85 MPH.



High-waisted athlete who looked like a football player slot receiver or free safety. Strong, uphill path. Leg kick and down and back hand load sync up very nicely as he gets into a strong hitting position. Short to the ball with quicker hands, but is also pretty quick out of the zone with a single-handed finish. Very good athlete to follow.
