Scouting Report

 

1/27/18- Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds with a strong, athletic build. Stood out at the plate where he showed above average bat speed and consistently showed the ability to square the ball up from both sides of the plate. Gap-to-gap power and drives the ball. Catcher with power from both sides of the plate, registering an exit velocity of 92 mph. Behind the plate he shows strong hands and solid footwork with accurate throws to the bag that topped out at 76 mph. Clocked in at 8.0 seconds for his 60 yard dash time.

12/16/17- Big, strong frame. The switch hitter has an uphill swing from the left side that shows power potential. He uses e strong lower half well and stays balanced throughout the swing. Right handed, he is a bit more spread out and simple. Still uses the lower half well, but can get long at ties. Power potential from both sides of the plate.
