NOTES FROM THE FIELD, INSTRUCTS:
- Large frame, has thickened through core and lower-half. Looks the part on a corner.
- Inefficient swing, can’t get to his power in games. Lengthy path, casts the barrel early, busted inside, struggles with spin.
- Natural strength and leverage give raw power to pullside. Will grow into more as he finishes filling out.
- Below-avg runner up the line, moves better underway. Won’t be a basestealer.
- Actions and hands work at 3B. Ranges well to the 5/6 hole and can finish plays.
- Solid-avg arm across the dirt, enough for left side of the infield.
SUMMARY: Former top J2 prospect, came to WSH from MIL in a trade this summer. Didn’t see the hitting ability to tap into power enough for regular ML role at a corner position. Needs to improve at the plate to turn himself into a prospect.
