Newman had to sit out his sophomore year at Cypress this spring because he fell one credit hour short of qualifying. But scouts are intrigued by his athletic, physical 6-foot-2, 185 pound frame. His best tool is his premium speed; he has been clocked at 6.4 seconds in the 60-yard dash. Newman has two other potential average or slightly better major league tools in his power and arm strength from the outfield, but his bat remains a question, and his all-around game needs refinement. He needs to play more baseball to improve his instincts.
