Scouting Report

Looks more like a football player than baseball player. Former catcher. Very fluid for someone his size. Stands out for his raw power and solid defensive abilities at first base. Needs to maintain contact and improve his plate discipline in order to advance against higher level pitchers. Has the typical power hitter lag between the hips/torso ratio, helping to produce that torque power into the swing. Tends to gear up a bit too much with the hands and leaves himself with an elongated swing through the zone — it is not an issue with the bat speed at this stage, but as he advances pitchers may expose this issue. Will have to keep his hands closer to the starting point and compact his swing in order to remain at least an average contact hitter.
