Scouting Report

8/22/19

The Jesuit 3B showed advanced barrel ability and plus bat speed in his big frame all week. He really impressed in BP from the left side with a short, but violent stroke. Has great leverage and lag in the swing, and the ball jumps off the barrel. Quickness in the bat is elite. Uses simple, quiet approach and sprays the ball to all fields with carry. On defense, he showcased active feet with above average hands. The arm was 77-81 across the infield. Defense is solid enough that he’ll stick at 3B with his above average hit tool and power potential. Registered an exit velocity of 93.
