Scouting Report  
Moffet is a physical specimen a 1B/OF, standing 6-foot-5 and weighing 210 pounds.
Offensively- Hands start off of back shoulder, feet wide and weight backloaded. Smooth heel lift load, and quiet hands leave little room for error in Moffett’s swing. Great lift, finishes on back leg, finishes high with one-arm. Power will continue to improve as Moffett matures. Displayed gap power with booming double to left center in game. Exit velocity: 92 MPH. Defensively- Big target to throw to at 1B, gets off base well and fields ball upright. Moffet is very athletic for his size; agile on his feet and gets his body into proper throwing position. Suitable to above average arm at 1B; 78 MPH.

Quick Hit
"First look at Moffett at Last Fall's Battle on the Border was an impressive one. Facing elite arms from NJ and New England Moffett pounded the gaps with impressive power. You can't teach 6-foot-5, bat speed and athleticism. As his frame develops and is able to handle the off-speed (he will see plenty of it), Moffett will be a big time middle of the order threat. Can't wait to see him September 17th at our NY All-Star Games in Amsterdam"
