Sabol's physicality and upside made him a high-profile prospect coming out of high school, but he elected to go to Oregon, where a broken bone his left hand spoiled his freshman season. He transferred to Orange Coast for his sophomore year but was sidelined by a broken hamate bone. His performance was pedestrian when he returned to action, but his raw tools haven't gone away. Though he saw some action behind the plate this spring, the overwhelming scouting consensus is that he lacks the agility, hands and footwork to catch. He figures to find a home at an outfield corner in pro ball, and he is a solid runner for his size. He has average or even slightly better raw arm strength, but it isn't particularly playable in games because of his long arm action and inaccuracy. Sabol's bat and power will have to carry him. He hasn't developed as a hitter, but he does have pitch recognition and plenty of bat speed, which leads to plus raw power. Unlocking that power in games will be key. Sabol is committed to Oklahoma State.
