  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Athletic frame with lots of projection. Has developed physically after signing, but still needs to add considerable strength

Hit: Starts open with a leg kick timing device. Bat drags due to lack of strength. Hands need to get quicker and needs to shorten swing, Swing is more fluid from the left side. Rough approach, has a long way to go, especially against off-speed pitches. Really struggles to recognize them and is often caught out in front.

Power: Lacks the ability to impact the baseball right now. Has the frame that could grow into power as he matures.

Run: Average speed. Could slow down as he physically matures.

Field: Likely to stick at shortstop if he does not grow too much more. Good instincts and smooth, fluid actions. Plus range and fields the position with some flair. Comfortable throwing from different angles. Potential plus defender.
  Arm: Plus arm strength.

Career Notes: Participated in the 2021 Fall Performance Program. Reportedly impressed during extended spring training 2022, but also suffered a hand injury near the end of extended that also caused him to miss roughly the first month of the FCL season. Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program that was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian.

Summation: Defense-first profile right now, with future upside tied up in how he physically matures and how his bat develops. At the moment, he is raw with a wide gap between what he is and what he could be.

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