English is a 6-foot-3, 208-pound two-way player that shows impact on both sides of the ball. While he hasn’t collected many strikeouts this spring, English has good stuff on the mound. He shows good control with his fastball that sits in the low-90s and tops out at 96 mph out of the bullpen. He also has a slider with a short break and curveball that has good downward tilt. He isn’t deceptive, but generates soft contact. English shows the ability to play an average outfield in addition to pitching. He shows plus power but has some swing and miss tendencies as well, though he significantly cut his strikeout rate from the 2018 season and had a career-best year with the bat, hitting .324/.414/.688 with 15 home runs. English pitched and hit in the Cape Cod League last summer and did well on both sides of the ball. He’s done enough with the bat that scouts think he can be an average hitter with plus raw power. English clearly makes the most of his athleticism, yet scouts are divided as to whether he’s a hitter or a pitcher at the next level. Scouts have seen enough progress with English in the outfield to think he has a chance to play a corner spot or first, defensively.
