  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Left-handed hitter with a short, compact frame. Very strong, stocky build. No remaining projection.

Hit: Starts slightly closed and utilizes a short leg lift timing device. Solid bat speed, smooth swing. Direct to the ball, keeps the barrel in the zone a long time. Has swing and miss in his game, but also will take a walk.

Power: Above-average raw power.

Run: Below-average speed. Passable speed for his size.

Field: Long-term defensive home is still to be determined. Has played first base and outfield in pro ball. Played catcher, first base and outfield in college.
  Arm: Average arm.

Career Notes:
Played infield and catcher in high school in North Carolina. Also played football. Not drafted out of high school. Spent four years at Vanderbilt, winning the College World Series with the Commodores in 2019. Signed to a modest bonus for a 10th rounder, but a solid one for a college senior. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019 as a catcher.

Summation: Versatile, smart player from an elite program. Could advance quickly, but likely profiles as an organizational bat. If everything clicks, could develop into a power-hitting bench player capable of filling in at first base and left field.
