  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average frame with remaining projection. Needs to add strength.

Hit: Switch hitter with an intriguing bat that has a long way to go. Has shown advanced feel for hit for his age. Makes contact on pitches in the zone and chases at an average rate. Swing is better from the right side. More comfortable and shows a better ability to impact the baseball.

Power: Above-average raw power. Power plays better from the right side. Has shown the ability to punish mistake pitches already.

Run: Average speed.

Field: Has played all three outfield positions, but looks best suited for an outfield corner, especially as he physically matures.
  Arm: Average arm strength.

Career Notes: Signed as a middle infielder, moved to the outfield in 2021. Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021. Earned a promotion to Salem after the 2022 FCL season ended. Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program that was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian.

Summation: Intriguing young bat who has shown a solid swing and ability to drive the ball. Has platoon concerns, but has some upside at the plate. Needs to get stronger and has a long way to go, but scouts identified him as one of the more interesting hitters on a loaded 2022 FCL team.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
