Scouting Report
: Well filled-out first baseman signed out of Australia. Demonstrates strong power in batting practice. Utilizes a slight uppercut swing from the left side of the plate. Tends to produce too much topspin and loop under the ball. Average bat speed. Hit tool is below-average. Struggles with secondary offerings and driving the ball to the opposite field. Below-average approach. Solid-averag power potential. Must improve with getting the sweet spot of the bat on more offerings consistently. Shows improving footwork around the bag, but range is limited and tends to look too stiff at times. Average arm. Fringy overall tools.
