Notes from the Field (4.11.17)

Traded to Cincinnati for $1.5 million in international bonus pool money (July 2018)

Physical Description: Undersized, athletic frame. Much smaller than listed 5-foot-11, 170 pounds. Very skinny and lacks strength. Has some room to fill out as he matures, but will never be overly physical or strong.

Hit: Starts square with his hands high. Utilizes a leg kick and has quick hands, but bat tends to drag due to lack of strength. Pitch recognition needs refinement. Struggles with velocity. Strong contact skills. Likes to attack early in the count leading to low walk totals, but also low strikeout totals. Makes a lot of contact on the ground. Potential fringe-average hit tool if he can add strength.

Power: Well below-average power potential. Not a major part of his game. Speed will boost extra base hit totals.

Arm: Fringe-average arm strength. Enough for center field, but light for corner outfield.

Field: Solid instincts and plenty of range. Reads the ball off the bat and uses speed to his advantage to close down ground. Potential above-average defender.

Run: Plus speed. Gets down the line in 4.2 seconds from the right-side.

Career Notes: Participated in 2015 and 2016 Fall Instructional League

Summation: Ceiling of a fringe major leaguer, up and down bench outfield type. Speed and defensive potential profile in bench outfield role, but bat will be tested by upper level pitching. No power potential so will have to make enough contact to hit and keep pitchers honest. Projects as an organizational player if bat doesn’t develop.
