Career Stats
Quick Scouting Report Update: Got stronger over the offseason last year and showed up to spring training hitting the ball with authority and looking like he was ready to have a great season before things got shut down. Would have played most of the season at 18-years old this year so he has youth on his size. His ceiling is actually pretty high though his risk level is pretty high. Defensively he’s athletic enough to stick at SS, but there have been lingering questions that arm strength may force a move to second base eventually.
