Scouting Reports:

Baseball America

The son of Blue Jays broadcaster and former Major Leaguer Joe Siddall, Brett has loud tools and has performed for three years at Canisius. The younger Siddall stands at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds. He has a thick, muscly build with intriguing bat speed and he knows how to use his powerful trunk.

Siddall shows above-average power potential, and he’s shown the ability to drive the ball out to all fields with a wood bat. As a rising junior, Siddall swatted nine home runs and batted over .300 in the Northwoods League. He is an adequate defender in right field and has an above-average arm. Siddall has come on strong in his final year as he’s learned how to loft the ball the other way.
