Scouting Report

6/30/20

Future Games Trials

6-foot-1, 180-pound right-handed hitting outfielder and shortstop, athletically built, muscular frame with more strength on the way as he continues to mature, some quick twitch, ran a 6.75 laser-timed 60. Offensively, balanced setup, smooth rhythm in hands as he loads back, leg lift stride, great balance through contact. Gap-to-gap type swing, swing path is mostly uphill through the zone, consistently elevated and drove the ball with force, quick, strong hands, whippy barrel speed, 89 exit velocity off a tee, 98.24 max exit velocity during BP. Defensively, arm works clean and loose to a ¾ slot, quick arm speed, 82 from the outfield, on the infield, shortens arm action up and uses multiple slots effectively, 80 across the infield, throws showed some carry, more in the tank. Fields both positions athletically, plays through the ball with quick footwork, clean on transfers. Has the actions and athleticism to fit as a center fielder or on the left-side of the infield at the next level.
