  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Medium, athletic build. Lots of projection remaining.

Hit: Switch hitter. Small toe tap device. From the left side, wrists start at chin level, coming down on approach. Wrists start lower from the right side. Really good-looking swing from both sides, transfers power well from front to back. Smooth and fluid. Above-average hit tool potential. Has struggled from the right side early in his pro career.

Power: Below-average present in-game power. Shows some pop in batting practice. Average power projection if frame fills out.

Run: Fringe-average runner. Won't be a major part of his game. Solid instincts.

Field: Reportedly shows fluid movements in center field with good instincts. Could stick in center.
  Arm: Fringe-average arm.

Career Notes:
Boston gave him the highest bonus of the club's 2018 international free agent class. Did not attend 2019 spring training, at which time he was still just 16 years old. Struggled out of the gate in the Domincan Summer League in 2019, but ended the season strong. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020.

Summation: Very raw but projectable. Has a good feel for the game for his age, solid overall instincts, and a high baseball IQ.

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