Skender has a knack for performing on the big stage. For the second straight year, he lit up opposing pitchers at the World Wood Bat Championship in Jupiter, FL. As a junior, he went 8-for-18 with 10 runs scored in seven games, helping the Reds Midwest Scout Team to the playoffs. He picked up where he left off in 2014, going 6-for-12 and showing power with a double and three-run walk-off home run. He also didn’t strike out in five games and stole six bases. Skender is a solid runner, but moves well with good body control. He has a strong arm that plays anywhere on the diamond. At the plate, he shows advanced bat speed and takes aggressive cuts.
