7/28/21

High upside prospect across the board. Physical, athletic (also QB) and has all the tools. As he continues to progress he's a guy who could continue to raise his stock. Solid round with loud middle of the field contact. Top overall tool other than athleticism would be the arm talent. Big time arm that we've seen show consistently behind the dish and also showed it off in the outfield as well. Stock should continue to rise.

7/06/20

Hit: Right-handed hitter that starts in an athletic setup. Advanced tools across the board for class. Turn and burn type BP with impressive pull side juice. High follow in class.
Power: Easy gap abilities.
Offensive Projection: Run producer.
Max BP Exit Velocity: 93 mph
Max BP Distance: 330 ft
Field: Has all the tools you’d want in a backstop and I’d expect his stock as a defender to grow. Has minor things to clean up but athleticism/ball skills are there.
Throw: Well above average arm for class.
Defensive Projection: C.

2/16/20

2/16/20 Position Player
Hit: One of the top BPs we saw on the day, athletic mover with obvious burst through the zone. Ball looks different off the bat. Regularly backspun the baseball with gap abilities.
Power: Top batting practice exit velocity was 92.3 and he reached a top batting practice distance of 301 feet.
Offensive Projection: Run producer ceiling.
Field: Elite pop times for class as well, popping as low as 1.89. Above average skill set across the board back there. Although he has higher ceiling behind the dish presently there is athleticism/arm strength that makes him more than serviceable in the outfield as well.
Throw: Arm is a big time tool for class. 79 mph from crouch and to home plate as an outfielder.
Defensive Projection: C/OF.
