Physical Description: Looks the part. Strong, sturdy frame. Surprisingly athletic for his size. Minimal remaining projection.

Hit: Starts square with his hands high. Short, compact swing. Slightly above-average bat speed. Knows the strike zone. Has feel for hit. Will take a walk, has some swing and miss in his game. Uses all fields. Makes a lot of hard contact. Potential average hit tool.

Power: Average raw power. Game power plays below that. Will hit a handful of home runs per year, but primarily gap power.

Arm: Fringe-average arm strength. Passable in the corner outfield, but doesn’t standout there.

Field: Shows soft hands and confidence scooping throws in the dirt at first base. Average range in the outfield and will make routine plays. Has more defensive upside at first base where he could be a potential above-average defender. Profiles as an average defender at best in the outfield.

Run: Fringe-average speed. Instincts allow him to steal more bases than you’d expect given his speed. Moves well for size.

Career Notes:
One of the most productive hitters in the country in 2018 and semi-finalist for the 2018 Dick Howser Trophy awarded to the top player in collegiate baseball. Was seen as one of the better senior signs available in the 2018 draft.  Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2018.

Summation: Potential up and down type. Lacks a carrying tool, but gets the most out of what he has. Good approach, makes contact and has some power. Very instinctual player with great makeup. Defensive versatility will be key as bat doesn’t profile great at either first base or in the corner outfield.
