    A projectable player scouts can dream on, Forbes has arguably the biggest gap between the player he is today and the player he could be at maturity. He is a three-sport athlete, one of the youngest players in the class and from a state with a poor track record for producing high school baseball talent. Everything about his game is based on projection, starging with a lean 6-foot-3, 180-pound body that will likely accommodate substantial strength gains. His bat is a project that could improve substantially. Forbes has above-average bat speed while having below-average strength that is likely to improve. He has a hand hitch and showed swing-and-miss tendencies on the showcase circuit, further evidenced by more strikeouts (11) than walks this spring (10). While his power is mostly to the gaps presently, he could develop above-average power. A plus runner in the 60, Forbes' speed plays at average out of the box but plus underway on the bases as a long strider. Forbes is currently a shortstop and has agility but will likely outgrow the position. The Mississippi commit's closing speed could play in center field or he could move to third base. The strengthening of his average arm could also dictate his ability to stay on the left side of the infield. Forbes offers an intriguing package for tools-based teams that love athletes with upside.
