Scouting Report

6/15/21

 

Physical: Athletic 6-foot-1, 190lb frame with good proportions and noticeable strength that translates to all phases. 7.11 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Started from a wide, loose stance with the hands starting tight by the ear. Utilized a stretched load position back to the shoulder, coupled with a repeatable leg lift stride in order to initiate a high-intent swing through a flat, twitchy path with noticeable extension at impact. Posted a mostly lofty approach, accruing extra-base hits throughout his batting practice round to the RCF part of the field (102 mph peak bat-exit, 335 foot batted ball distance). Showcased a 46% fly ball rate and 55% hard hit rate pointing towards easy middle of the order projection at the next level. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder displayed simple actions on the approach, getting around and down through the ball at the fielding window with medium posture/above-average pace. Fielded off the inside of the right foot and funneled inward quickly to a consistent exchange position; released accurately with slight arm-side run from a medium ¾ slot (83 mph arm).
