Scouting Report

Game revolves around his above-average power. Pull-hitter, most of his present power is to left field. Needs to cut down the K’s and shorten up his swing. Needs to focus on consistent contact. Showed signs of improvement with Frederick, but has shown little to no ability to identify/hit breaking stuff or catch up to quality fastballs. Doesn’t have the range for 3B, 1B is his future. Above-average arm strength. Unless the strikeout rate falls drastically, he projects as a power bat off the bench.
