4/26/18:The 5-foot-10, Oakland commit looks stronger and more physical than last spring, more arm strength from centerfield and ball jumped off the bat. Hit 4th in the lineup, drove the baseball to the pull side gap in first two at bats, best hitter with barrel control and good approach at the plate. Simple stride to swing approach, gets jumpy at times to the front side on takes, good hand eye, drives the baseball with some pop gap to gap. Got in good hitting counts, plays with a chip on his shoulder. Runs and tracks the baseball well in CF with good jumps and instincts, made good accurate throws in warmups with more carry and strength then last season. Chance to be an impact player at the college level in the outfield.
