Scouting Report: Right-handed hitting infielder with no physical projection. Average frame. Vertical, open stance. Slashes at the ball. Not a power threat, but knows the strike zone and solid contact skills. Well-below average power potential, but will run into one on occasion. Fringe-average speed. Solid defensive player. Profiles better at second base than third, but has played primarily third base in 2018. Average arm strength, fundamentally sound in the field. Soft hands, fluid actions. Senior draftee excelled for Division III Pomona-Pitzer. Played in the Alaskan Summer League in 2016. Profiles as an organizational infielder.
