Southisene entered the 2023 as a strong performer and left it with no questions about that reputation. In 18 logged games with Synergy in 2023, Southisene hit .432/.576/.500 with eight walks and six strikeouts. At 5-foot-9, 160 pounds, Southisene isn’t the most physical player, and his stature, performance track record and West Coast location lead to some Steven Milam comparisons, though Southisene does seem to have a bit more electricity in his toolset—with power and speed specifically. While he doesn’t project to be a power hitter, Southisene finds the barrel and hits the ball hard consistently, pairing strong bat-to-ball skills with a solid batting eye at the plate. He has leadoff skills and was excellent in that capacity for the Four Corners Reds team at the Area Code Games, where he went 6-for-12 (.500) with a double, three walks and two strikeouts. Southisene has some moving parts in his setup, including a decent amount of bat waggle with his highly-set hands, a deep hand press and a sizable leg kick. It’s a level path and line drive stroke that might not lead to many home runs, but his ability to drive the ball to the right-center gap should allow for plenty of doubles. Southisene showed solid defensive actions at shortstop, and he can make a fine throw across the diamond with his feet set, though his arm strength could be a better fit for second base in the long run. He is committed to Tennessee.
