Rangy,come through the ball wall. Showcased a strong arm, topping out at 88 mph, with accurate, low throws with carry.

There is a little steepness, but there is some present bat speed with a feel for the barrel.  He is slightly upright with some recoil in the swing. When he learns to clear his hips and use the lower half, should translate to gap-to-gap power.  Defensively, he shows a quick, strong, above-average arm for his class topping out at 84 mph. Overall there is a lot of athleticism and quick twitch actions that project very well.
