Scouting Report

1.28.18: Oates is 5-11 with an athletic frame, he hits from the right side from an open athletic stance. Short stride on line, smooth load back to a slight wrap, good rhythm to his swing. Hips rotate fully with some explosion, some balance to swing as well. Gets barrel to ball quickly, bat has some quickness to it. Works slightly uphill, pull approach with extension to ball, can go with ball to middle of the field, has potential to develop power to pull side, exit velocity was 81. Behind the plate, gains ground during exchange, works through the ball to throw from a low three-quarters arm slot. Short quick arm action, ball has some carry, position velocity was 75, pop times were 2.16-2.22. 

9.16.17:  Projectable athletic frame. Showed athleticism and a quick bat that is short to the ball with extension through it. Has serious power potential, especially to pull side, has easy doubles power already.
