WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Russell had great numbers throughout high school, with a ton of power, although that power doesn’t project for the long term. He’s got quick hands and an upper cut swing. He’s a gap hitter and has pull power. Long term he profiles to have below average power. He plays shortstop and has a plus arm, but doesn’t profile to stick. The Pirates announced him as a second baseman, but he’s athletic enough to play center field. He has a commitment to Fresno State and could be a tough sign.
