  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Thin frame with lots of projection to add power. Very athletic.

Hit:
Raw and toolsy. Has shown some flashes of plus potential against advanced high school competition, but has also struggled against offspeed offerings. Wide stance, repeatable swing with smooth mechanics. Good extension and bat speed but can get long at times.

Power:
Current gap power with the potential to develop into above-average power.

Run:
Plus runner - fast on the bases with fluid movements.

Arm:
Above-average arm strength. Quick hands and transfer.
  Defense: Quick footwork, fast twitch response. Fluid movements. Smart player, but still very raw in terms of positional fundamentals. Above-average potential but will need time to develop.

Career Notes: Nephew of former MLB player Carlos Beltran, whose baseball academy he attended. Committed to University of Miami.

Summation
: Chance to develop into a five-tool shortstop, but is several years away and will need attention on development, particularly with approach against offspeed pitching and shortstop fundamentals.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person
