Scouting Report

Body: Athletic 6'0" 175 lbs. frame with plenty of room to add strength.  Tons of "twitch" in his movements.

Hit: Starts in a squared off, balanced, and athletic stance with hands held just above shoulder height.  Uses a modified leg kick to get back to center.  Does a good job of controlling his body through his load and stride and maintains balance throughout the swing.  Aggressively fires his back hip to deliver a heavy barrel straight to the ball with slightly uphill extension.  Present pull side power with a max exit velocity of 91 mph.

Defense (OF): Good first step, feet and body are in sync as he plays through the baseball, catching it cleanly out front.  

Defense (C): Steady receiver, average blocker.  Quick transfer with athletic footwork.  Pop times of 1.83-1.94

Arm (OF): High 3/4 to near over the top release.  Short and quick.  88 mph positional velocity.

Arm (C): Short and quick arm action.  3/4 release.  79 mph positional velocity.

Run: 7.01 in the 60.
