Scouting Report

8/22/19

Simple, simple, simple with the approach and swing. Quiet head, feet and lower half, just puts the barrel on the ball with extension. Starts tall, sinks into swing well. Arms can get barred at times if he gets long, but stays short and compact for the most part. 6.98 runner with athletic movements. Gap to gap pop currently with some long ball potential with added strength. Well above average, accurate arm in the outfield, topping at 89 mph. Feet are quick and in rhythm. Uses legs efficiently on throws.  Athletic, quick releases. 91 mph exit velocity.
