Scouting the 2017 Draft: Royce Lewis

Royce Lewis, SS/OF.  B-R, T-R.  6'2", 190 lbs.  Junipero Serra HS, San Juan Capistrano, CA.

Royce Lewis is a 5 tool athlete.  Above average speed.  Plus arm hitting 98 MPH from the OF, 95 MPH on IF throws.  He's got present power in his swing with room to grow.  His defense at SS was suspect, but improved significantly over the past year.  He's got a lean body on a large frame that looks like it can easily carry another 15-20 lbs.  Long legs.  BA ranks him as their #2 HS draft prospect.
