Offensively- the right handed hitter stands in the box in a tall stance with feet shoulder width apart. Short simple load actions. Slight lift at the point of contact. Displayed hard contact to the pull and middle part of the field. Stays balanced throughout the swing. Defensively- the 2021 graduate worked out as a catcher during the defensive portion at the Last Chance event. Presents a big target and displayed active footwork. Smooth exchange and quick release from a high 3/4 arm slot. Pop time range was 2.02-2.09.
