Bay Area World Series 2020 (BAWS) - Uncommitted; Profiles as middle of the line-up hitter, power & arm project as plus tools, above avg runner/fielder. On mound flashes rotation quality stuff, including FB up to 87 and a hard CB (76-78). There is a lot of Stephen Piscotty type talent in him (yes, saw him repeatedly in HS and at this same event, twice, as well).
