Scouts believe Fernandez is a late bloomer who will add strength to his wiry, 6-foot-2, 185-pound build. He's an intriguing athlete because it's rare to see a player who plays center field and also catches. Fernandez runs well for his size, but isn't a burner and if he adds strength it would likely take away the option of playing center field. Going behind the plate full-time would require some work, but Fernandez obviously moves well and has at least an average arm. He's been switch-hitting for the past couple years and shows a smooth, handsy swing, especially from the left side, and could hit for average power once he matures. Fernandez is committed to Alabama State.
