Scouting Report

11/13/17- Committed to the University of Miami.

10/11/17-The lefthanded hitting 2020 was one of the two 2020s on the Scorpions Prime team and you can see why. The left handed hitter shows the ability to turn the barrel and stays in the zone a long time. He has above average bat speed and shows the ability to square up velocity. He still has a lot of room to fill out and can see him having above average power as he gets stronger. The bat will make him a high follow going forward.

08/26/17: Left-handed hitting first baseman with a lean, athletic build with long levers. At the plate shows an advanced approach with loose wrists and has a feel for the barrel.
