The nephew of former Major Leaguer Matt Cepicky, CJ is a five-tool prospect with the potential to hit for both average and power. A plus athlete, he has solid tools across the board, with run speed as his top tool. It grades out as above average-to-plus underway. He also will show an above average arm and projects to be a future above average defender on either corner with the possibility of patrolling the big field on a part-time basis. In the batter’s box, his swing showed immense improvement since my first look in June of 2019 at the National Program Invite at LakePoint, GA and then again at the February 2020 Super 60. His swing can get stiff, two-part and pushy when he gets too focused on going the opposite way. On this most recent look it was much more free, loose and he used all fields, unafraid to just let the bat head fly. With normal development, Cepicky could become a Day One prospect for the 2023 draft.
