Scouting Report

11/18/18 Sturdy, strong frame at 6-foot-1, 215-pounds. Right-handed hitter showed off fast-strong hands that generate the type of easy bat speed and an exit velocity of 93 mph. The setup is tall and balanced with simple rhythm in hands. Subtle shift of weight back before taking a short stride forward. The path is short and on a slight uphill path through the zone. Defensively bounce around with smooth footwork around the bag and receptive hands. Made clean exchanges working into a short high-3/4 release that posted a positional velocity of 76 mph. Ran a 7.72 60-yard dash.
