Jovani is an athletic and tall 2021 OF prospect. In the OF, Jovani has an active setup and shows a quick first step to the ball. He works behind the ball and creates momentum to throw with his crow hop. At the plate, Jovani starts in an open stance and creates separation. He is aggressive with the lower half and has a short/compact swing. He drives the ball to all fields and has a middle approach. Jovani will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Jovani is an OF with an athletic build. Defensively in the OF, he shows active footwork as he hustles to track down fly balls. He works low with athletic actions and comes up with a clean exchange to throw. With the bat, this RHH displays fluid rhythm to load. He rips his lower 1/2, swings fast through the zone and consistently drives pitches with hard contact. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
1. Quicker 1st step
2. Work behind more
3. Arm strength (long toss)
1. Let the ball travel
2. Level out swing path
3. Drive pitches the opposite way
