Physical Description: Athletic, projectable frame. Skinny and lacks strength at present. Could stand to add 15-20 pounds as he physically matures.

Hit: Starts square and vertical. Hands high, utilizes a big leg kick. Quick hands, swing has length and loft. Gets hands into the zone quick, but bat drags some due to lack of strength. Rudimentary approach. Can get pull happy at times. Lot of swing and miss at present. Will be tested at each level as he moves up. Potential fringe-average hit tool.

Power: Will show average raw power in batting practice, primarily to the pull side. Has shown some in game power as well to the pull side. Power development will depend on how he physically develops and how much contact he makes against more advanced pitching.

Arm: Below-average arm strength. Profiles best in left field, though passable in right as well.

Field: Work in progress. Needs to improve reads and routes. Not the most instinctual player, first step needs work. Projects as an average defender at best.

Run: Below-average speed. Not a major part of his game.

Career Notes:  Late round pick in 2017, had been committed to play at Penn State. Signed for slightly over slot on the day after his 19th birthday. Impressed in 2018 Spring Traning.  Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2018.

Summation: Bat first, corner outfield profile. Lot of development to go and wide gap between what he is now and what he could be in the future. Progress will be slow and will take time to adjust to each level. How he develops physically will be key to future development. Will have to hit as doesn’t project to add much defensive value.
