Scouting Report

Physical 5-foot-10, 180-pound frame with present strength. Left-handed hitter hits from a slightly closed, upright stance with a closed front hip. The setup is a bit unconventional but it works really well for him. Uses a small leg lift load, landing strong while maintaining balanced positions throughout. Flashes a short compact stroke with a flat path with above average bat speed and extension through contact into a two-hand finish. Flashes pull side power potential with an exit velocity of 96 mph on TrackMan. Solid average defender at both corner outfield positions. The combination of quality instinct and good reads allows his athleticism to play up. Sure handed defender, attacks hops on ground balls and does a really good job of staying behind fly balls into a clean exchange and a super accurate throwing arm in game. During the workout, posted an 83 mph positional velocity from the outfield. Average runner, turned in a 7.09 60-yard dash but plays much faster in game as we had several sub 4.3 turns from home to first. Above average hit tool. One of the premier bats in the class. On the week, CJ was a human double, going 5-for-7 with 4 doubles, 3 walks, 5 runs scored and 3 RBI. Also, pitched an inning where the left-hander punched out two while working up to 84 mph while showing elite spin on the breaking ball.
