    Bowser stole the show at the Perfect Game All-American Classic at Petco Park in 2019 when he won the pregame home run derby and the game’s Most Valuable Player award. Teams considered him a top-two rounds talent out of Harvard-Westlake (Studio City, Calif.) High, but the shortened 2020 draft and his strong commitment to Stanford led him to go unpicked. Bowser started all three years for the Cardinal and hit 39 home runs, but his strikeouts increased each successive season. Bowser is a strong, physical 6-foot-4, 226-pound righthanded hitter with plus-plus raw power. He destroys balls to all fields with his natural strength and plus bat speed and posts top-end exit velocities. Bowser makes impact on contact, but he has a long, grooved swing and swings and misses alarmingly often. He struggles to cover the outer half of the plate and frequently chases out of the strike zone. He is a well below-average hitter whose pitch recognition and plate discipline are poor and whose swing needs to be rebuilt. Bowser is a versatile defender who spent time at both second and third base at Stanford. He alternately looks better at one position over the other, although he tends to be more reliable at second base. He is a below-average runner with above-average arm strength but poor accuracy.
