What they are saying: “Saw him earlier in the year and he was just OK. Has been hot lately saw him again and he’s a good looking kid: great body, big raw power, power to all fields in batting practice. Some see his swing as really long, he can get beat with the fastball. A draftable player, some clubs like him. Will have to shorten his swing to have success at the pro level.”
On other lists: 137th on Perfect Game top 200 JUCO players.
