rookie review

What We Liked: The 5-foot-10, 148-pounder projects well with athleticism carrying in the movements. Ran a 7.20 60-yard dash out of the gate and added a calm, mature round of batting practice where he lived on the barrel from gap to gap (83 mph exit). The primary outfielder flashed natural arm-talent from his position with some versatility to his game, which ultimately bled over to a top 'pen featuring a three-pitch arsenal. The game comes relatively easy at the moment and the Sophomore could very well take another step forward this year.
