Notes — April 5-6
Big kid with natural strength and thick, physical frame; only 20 years old and may tighten up his body a bit in the next few years as he matures … Surprisingly patient hitter at times; seems to understand the strike zone pretty well, particularly for his age/this level … Swing is plenty long, and almost functions as an inside-out look; going to struggle against good velocity unless he makes some adjustments. That said, long through it with plenty of natural strength, so theoretically should hit for some power, particularly in Lancaster … The Cal League may be a big jump for him, though; overmatched by a poor fastball in a couple early at-bats in my look, hit a weak fly ball in a hitter’s count that turned into a wind-aided double in a later at-bat. Small sample size in my two-day look, of course; bears watching to see how he survives in big jump to Lancaster, particularly after dealing with injuries earlier in his career that took away virtually one full year of development time; skeptical until I see more … No foot speed and not a great athlete in the field; doesn’t move very well side to side, though hands are pretty good. For me, more likely to stick at first; can’t see him playing much third going forward, but again, it was an early April look that I’ll fill out come summer.

Certainly a shot to reach an everyday corner infield ceiling considering his age at High-A, but Tyler Nevin will really have to hit for power to keep an everyday gig at higher levels, particularly if he’s destined to be a full-time first baseman. Hunch that he’s more of a second-tier prospect on this Lancaster team, decidedly behind Colton Welker and Willie Abreu, and more likely to provide value in some broadly similar way to, say, Forrest Wall or Vince Fernandez. We’ll see.
