Scouting Report

5-foot-10, 165-pound, well-proportioned, left/left center fielder; frame carries strength throughout. Has shown well at multiple PBR Tournaments throughout the summer and fall.

Hands get into a powerful position to hit, direct path to the baseball, quick bat, strong wrists and works gap-to-gap. Defensively, above-average center fielder for his age. Quick first step, natural outfield actions. High-follow 2023 left-handed hitting outfielder.
