Physical Description: Wirey, athletic frame. Lacks strength at present. Some projection remaining.

Hit: Starts square with his hands high from both sides of the plate. Utilizes a slight leg lift. Swing is more advanced from the left side. Looser and quicker to the ball. Bat drags from the right side. In the early makings of developing an approach, but has shown the ability to recognize spin and keep his hands and body back. Slap hitter, doesn’t look to drive the ball. Uses his hands well at the plate. Bat will be tested by more advanced pitching.

Power: Well below-average raw power. Not a part of his game. Swing tailored to gap power at most.

Arm: Average arm strength, plenty of arm for second base, but arm would be fringy on the left side of the infield.

Field: Plus range to both sides. Quick first step, can cover a lot of ground quickly. Soft hands, fluid actions. Instinctual player, seems to find himself in the right position on every play. Potential solid-average-to-better defender at second base.

Run: Average speed, but plays faster. Quick first step, solid instincts allow speed to play up.

Career Notes: Had been committed to Southern Cal. Worked out and played for a college development program run by Nomar Garciaparra's brothers Ramon and Michael. Missed most of July and August 2016 after suffering a broken foot, and missed time due to injury after signing in 2015 as well. Participated in 2016 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Projects as an organizational type. Ceiling of a backup infielder, but long way to go to reach that potential. Injuries have limited him to 30 combined games in his first two seasons. Gritty player, will get the most out of his tools, but playing style can be to his detriment if leading to injury. Runs out everything, leaves it all out on the field. How his bat develops will determine how far he goes as defense at second base will be an asset.
