8/12/18
A left-handed bat that starts in a wider setup. Simple load that creates balance and timing. Nice, compact stroke on a level path. Impressive barrel feel with the ability to use the whole field. Showed backspin abilities to both gaps. In the outfield he plays confident to and through. Ball skills are on par to above average for class. Has a center/left fielder look to him. Solid defender with an accurate arm. Two-way prospect. Athletic actions on the bump with easy, efficient delivery. Works through an over the top slot, showing compact arm action. Fastball works downhill sitting 72-75 mph. Breaking ball has late bite on a 1/7 plane at 63-65 mph. Solid offering that acts as the out pitch. Strike thrower that competes in the zone regularly.
Outfield Velocity: 74

A two-way prospect. At the plate he starts in a balanced setup from the left side. Uses a small leg lift for timing while taking hands back to launch. Barrel launches from a leg position and bat moves through the zone on a mostly level path. Barrel has whip through the zone and he generates above average bat speed. Sprays line drive to both field and has more juice in there as he fills out his athletic frame. In the outfield he has smooth actions and above average ball skills. Plays cleanly through the baseball and transitions well from fielding into his throws. Arm looks to be an above average tool. On the bump he has an uptempo delivery that requires little effort. Arm works through a near high-¾ slot with adequate arm speed. Fastball will regularly run arm side and sit 73-75 mph. Uses a 1/7 shaped breaking ball as his secondary offering. The pitch is a big breaker and has the ability to freeze or get hitter so chase.
Home to First: 4.31
Outfield Velocity: 76
Exit Velocity: 82
