    A toosly, high-upside center fielder, Gorski has an intriguing power-speed combination that scouts can dream on, but there are some real questions about the quality of his hit tool. A 6-foot-4, 195-pound righthanded hitter, Gorski has plus raw power and plus running ability, but after hitting .356/.404/.554 during his sophomore season in 2018, he was hitting .279/.385/.516 through his first 52 games this spring. Gorski has walked at a career-high rate, struckout at a career-high rate and also homered more this spring than he did in his first two seasons. His swing has some length to it, and his eye level shifts during a load that features a hand hitch and slight collapse of his back leg. Last summer in the Cape Cod League, Gorski featured a big leg kick that he attempted to quiet down, but he struck out 33 percent of the time in his 23-game stint with Harwich. Despite his speed, Gorski needs work to stick in center field, as scouts label his defense as shaky at the moment. He might fit best in a corner, and he has above-average arm strength that could allow him to fit in either spot.
