GCL Pirates (MLB, Pirates)
Cerebral player with a high baseball IQ; runs the infield like a quarterback; takes to instruction very well; plus-plus makeup; defense stands out, but the bat is coming along nicely.
Wide stance; simple bat-to-ball approach; quick hands; short compact swing; above-average bat speed; stays balanced and level; drives the ball to opposite field; line-drive machine.
Presently gap to gap; still developing; shows some raw during BP; level swing will limit over–the-fence potential.
Faster than expected; consistent average times to first; top-end speed slightly above average; good instincts; shows some aggressiveness taking the extra base.
Brick wall behind the plate; quick feet; presents a nice target; receiving skills still improving; drops quickly when needed; stays square on balls in dirt.
Easy plus arm; flashes plus-plus ability; sub 2.0 pop times consistently; 1.85 best in-game time I recorded; quick release; excellent accuracy.
Very impressive all-around talent; His defense will always be his calling card; his bat should become a real weapon from the left side; will never be an easy out; embraces being a leader and players respond; has a real chance to be an elite catcher with an above-average bat; definite future all-star ability.
