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.
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.
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.
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
