  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Undersized, compact frame. Solid athlete. Has some room to add additional strength, but close to maxed out physically.

Hit: Starts square and utilizes a toe-tap timing device. Plus bat speed. Short, direct swing path. Approach is raw at present. Very aggressive in the early stages of his career. Looks to attack fastballs early in the count and rarely works deep counts. Pull heavy approach at present. Has shown the tendency to expand the zone against breaking balls early in his career. Potential average hit tool. Organization is tweaking his mechanics slightly from college.

Power: Below-average game power. Swing lacks lift and is designed more for hard gap to gap contact than over the fence power.

Run: Below-average speed. Speed plays up on the base paths due to above-average instincts. Stolen bases will not be a big part of his game.

Arm: Fringe-average arm strength. More than adequate for second base, but a little light for the left-side of the infield.
  Defense: Profiles best as a second baseman. Not out of the realm of possibility he ends up at short, but he lacks fluidity and feel at shortstop. Average range and hands are also on the rough side for shortstop. Not the most instinctual defender, has shown the tendency to let ground balls play him rather than attack the ball.

Career Notes: Drafted by the Diamondbacks in the 21st round of the 2016 draft, but honored his commitment to the University of Arizona. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019.

Summation: Ceiling of a second division, bat first, regular at second base. Solid chance of developing into a bench utility player. Bat will have to carry him as defensively doesn’t project to add significant value. Needs to improve defensively and refine approach.
