VA/DC Scout Blog

Drumgold showed speed and athletic actions, arm action is free in the outfield with the potential for arm strength in the future. Hits from the left side, at the plate showed ability to use the whole field with a short swing and some batspeed as well as some strength at contact. Ball jumped off bat and showed pop to all fields with a double deep down the leftfield line. Interesting prospect to follow as he continues to develop.
