Prospect Spotlight

NOTES FROM THE FIELD, SOUTH ATLANTIC LEAGUE:

  • Medium frame, plus athlete, looks like a big leaguer. Muscular build through chest+shoulders, trim waist, long limbs.
  • Smooth, athletic LH stroke w/ balanced finish. Whips barrel through, hands+hips synced well. Low-ball hitter, hole covering velo upstairs. Playable future hit tool. 
  • Easy hard contact in BP; swing already has plenty of lift, shouldn’t have trouble working under the ball. Won’t be a slugger but has some HR power to grow into.
  • Above-avg runner w/ strong, athletic stride. Accelerates well up the line. 10-15 SB potential, can help a team on the bases. 
  • Athleticism to stay in CF long-term even as body matures. Moves between all three OF spots now. 50 in CF, 55 on a corner. 
  • Didn’t see him throw much in a short look. Appears avg, don’t think it limits him in CF. 

SUMMARY: Plus athlete w/ projectable LH swing and interesting up-the-middle toolset. Skills of a well-rounded role player w/ continued development across the board.
