An athletic outfielder with a lean, 6-foot-3, 187-pound frame, Newell showed a solid tool-set at a number of events this summer and wowed scouts with his hit tool during a Perfect Game event in Atlanta. Newell has a smooth, uphill bat path from the left side and shows solid power with a fly ball-oriented swing. He also has above-average arm strength, though he’s still working his way back from Tommy John surgery. Defensively, scouts think he has a chance to stick in center field as an above-average runner. Newell is committed to Virginia.
