Scouting Report

6/13/21

 

Physical: Stands at a lean 5-foot-11, 145lbs with room to continue adding strength; athleticism shines in all phases with fluidity in the movements. 6.87 runner in the 60-yard dash with a top of the order profile. 

Offensively: Switch hitter - comfortable from both sides and mirrored setups with loose hands flashing slight barrel-wag pre-swing at shoulder height. Utilized a short lift and replace stride with rhythm and occasional weight shift into a stiff front side at impact. Peppered the middle of the field with hard contact and line drives at head height, showing above-average barrel awareness during batting practice. Low intent, high bat to ball skills, and on time with consistency pointing to tough at-bats in the box/low strikeout numbers. Posted a 90 mph peak bat-exit velocity.

Defensively: Moved with a purpose, featuring a quick first step and low center of gravity on rangy plays in either direction. Got downhill through the fielding window with a soft/trusted glove hand operating out in front. Smooth exchanges and an accurate high ¾ slot with some carry to the target, handled the play on the run with grace and a clean, lower ¾ slot on the move. Recorded an 83 mph arm strength from his position.

Physical: 5’11 145lb thin and active build. 6.81 runner in the 60 &  displays above-average baseball actions all throughout his game. Offensively: The switch hitter produced a 92 mph exit velocity from both sides of the plate. Easy and effortless swing with impressive hand-eye coordination is easy to see and project. Excellent hand and body rhythm allows for consistent & hard contact. Defensively: Has excellent actions in the infield and good arm strength across the diamond up to 85 mph. With MLB bloodlines, his feel and knowledge for the game show anytime he steps on the field. Hands and feet flow efficiently and displays a consistent and accurate pocket to the ball.
