Scouting Report

Left-handed hitter that starts in an open, athletic setup. Loading sequence is fluid, incorporating a leg kick. Hands move back to launch before taking a downhill path to the baseball. Bat has some quickness to it and swing is compact. Ideal top of the lineup mold. From the outfield he approaches the baseball with confidence and fluidity. Plays through the ball well and gets rid of it quickly. Throws from an over the top slot and has some life on his throws.
60-yard dash: 6.84
Outfield Velocity: 77
Exit Velocity: 85

5-foot-11, 150-pound, athletic frame. A talented hitter that should be a high follow as he matures physically. His measurables don’t tell the full story on his ability at the plate. He gets efficient use out of his frame with good energy created with his lower half through a knee pinch and short stride. Remains fluid throughout his load before taking a level path to the ball. In the game he showed an advanced approach and pitch recognition skills. Recorded four hits on the day. With his efficient mechanics and advanced mental game at the plate he is going to be fun to watch when he fills out and gets stronger. Exit velocity was 79 mph and he ran a 7.18 60-yard dash. In the outfield has above average footwork, always moving fluidly towards the ball. Takes efficient routes to the ball. Average arm at this stage. Positional velocity was 79 mph. Has the instinct and routes to play at center field. Will have to continue to improve foot speed to stay there long term.
