Scouting Report

01/27/18- Currently stands at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds with a tall, strong frame. Offensively, he starts from a slightly open stance with a big slide step for his load. Shows strength in his swing and looks to drive the ball with authority deep into the gaps. At times he can be inconsistent on his front foot landing, but when he gets his foot down and stays fluid throughout his swing, he makes hard, solid contact. Registered an 85 mph exit velocity in the cage. At first, he showed solid defensive actions by surrounding the ball out in front and making the accurate throws to second and third, topping out at 74 mph. Clocked in at 7.88 seconds for his 60 yard dash time.
