At the plate, simple and repeatable from both sides, pre pitch rhythm in hands, minimal load, in line stride, slightly longer swing from left side with pull approach, works gap to gap from right side, slight lift in bat path during finish.  Behind the plate, staggered set up with thing base, over the top arm slot, mostly accurate throws, 70 mph positional velocity, 2.04 to 2.08-second pop times. On the infield, 75 mph positional velocity, over the top arm slot, aggressive and quick the ball with footwork, clean exchanges with mostly accurate throws.
