Strong, filled-out frame with broad shoulders. No remaining projection.
Quiet approach with a subtle toe tap. Uppercut swing path. Quick wrists.
Overall average hit tool with solid plate discipline. Does not strike out a
lot. Has shown solid-average raw power which has only translated to
fringey in-game power. Fringe-average speed, but runs well for his size
and position. Can take an extra base. Solid fielder at first base. A
work-in-progress in the outfield with potential for improvement with
better reads. Above-average arm. Pitched for the Mexican national team before
signing with the Braves in 2011. Completely retooled his approach upon
joining the Phillies organization in 2018. Was able to pull the ball more
and get it into the air, increasing his fly ball rate considerably.

Blue Wave of Nippon Professional Baseball for 2019 season. Received
one-year suspension from NPB for testing positive for anabolic steroids
