Physical Description: Thick, stocky right-handed hitter. Maxed out physically.

Hit: Starts square and utilizes a leg kick timing device. Swing is on the long side. Fringe-average bat speed. Struggles with velocity, especially up in the zone. Aggressive approach. Goes up there looking to swing the bat. Has some trouble recognizing spin when behind in the count. Will make the pitcher pay for missed locations with fastballs. Potential below-average hit tool.

Power: Plus raw power, especially to the pull side. Has shown the ability to drop the shoulder and turn on the ball with authority. Game power will depend on how much contact he makes and how his approach develops.

Run: Well below-average speed. Not a part of his game.

Field: Surprisingly agile for his size. Below-average range, but has soft hands and is confident scooping balls in the dirt. Potential average defender.

Arm: Fringe-average arm. Plenty for first base.

Career Notes: Graduated holding University of Houston records for home runs (53), RBI (223), extra-base hits (107), and total bases (503), as well as Amerian Athletic Conference records for hits (288), home runs, RBI, doiubles (53), and total bases. Named to either the first or second team all conference all four years at Houston. Missed some time in 2019 with an abdomen strain

Summation: Potential solid organizational player. Lacks a carrying tool, but has the offensive ability to stick around for a while as a very useful depth player throughout a minor league system. Strong work ethic, has shown a flair for the dramatics. Doesn’t get phased in late game, pressure situations. Type of player every organization needs.
