Vukovich had a standout winter playing basketball for East Troy (Wis.) High. He topped 2,000 career points and was a finalist for Wisconsin’s Mr. Basketball award. His spring did not go nearly as planned. The travel-team league Vukovich played in was shut down almost as soon as it started by the coronavirus pandemic. Vukovich showed what he could do last summer when he earned a spot on USA Baseball’s 18U national team. He is a big, 6-foot-4, 210 pound long-levered power hitter who gets to his power despite almost no load to his swing. He could use a little more consistency in his swing and was very up and down last summer, but with some modest mechanical cleanup, he has the potential to generate plus or better power. Vukovich is a third baseman now, but he projects to outgrow the position will likely end up a corner outfielder or first baseman. His average arm works fine, although his arm stroke can get a little funky. Vukovich has plenty of potential, but this abnormal spring made it tough for teams to gauge whether he is ready for pro ball. He is committed to Louisville.
