Pete Crow-Armstong – OF – Harvard-Westlake

Player: Pete Crow-Armstrong Scout Date: 4/4/19
Organization: Harvard-Westlake (2020 Draft) Position(s): CF
Height: 6’ Weight: 175 lbs. Bats: Left Throws: Left
Hit: Smooth, gets foot down well after medium leg kick. Line drive swing. Good body control that allows him to follow ball and fight off with two strikes.
Power: Ball jumps, can add more plane to swing that suggests some real future power.
Run: 4.1 Home to first.
Arm: Yet to see it unleashed but has shown good accuracy. Strength doesn’t seem to be there, probably more of a 40 current with a future 45.
Glove: Natural center fielder. Comfortable at the position. Seems to glide to ball. Plus range, likely plus overall defender in center.
Other: Minimal exposure to him so far, will be making it a point to get eyes on him multiple times before 2020 draft.
Summary: It is too early to call on my full take on Crow-Armstrong as I have only seen one game thus far. First instincts are he is a no brainer center fielder with a pretty swing that drives the ball. Would be surprised if I don’t have first round grade on him next Spring and expect to see him a lot via showcase circuit this summer.
