Scouting Report

10/28/17 6-foot-1, 160-pound primary shortstop showcased active feet and a confident glove hand with an over-the-top throwing motion. Displayed accurate 82 mph arm strength and the potential to play multiple defensive positions with his size and athleticism. Right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and initiates his swing with a lift-and-replace stride. Hands launch from a point of strength and stay behind baseball in spite of some lower half glide. Displayed above average feel for the barrel and a bat exit velocity of 81 mph. Ran a 7.28 60-yard dash and sat 76-78 from an over-the-top arm slot with little movement to his fastball. Curveball displayed short slider break at 65-67 and changeup showed some late sink at 68-69.
