Scouting Report: 6-foot, 180-pound athletic body frame and possible two-way prospect. From the infield he shows pretty good footwork approaching ground balls and playing through the baseball for the most part. He fields more out front with his hands, showing softness to them. He throws using a clean, short arm action coming from a ¾ slot reaching a top velocity of 79 mph across the infield. Right-handed hitter starts from a balanced stance using simple, repeatable step and swing mechanics. His hands back load gets close to an arm bar position. He swings with a slightly upward bat path through the zone, and finishes high with a two-handed follow through. He showed some strength during his round of batting practice. He reached a top exit velocity of 91 mph and ran a 7.17 60-yard dash. On the mound he uses a slow paced tempo in a delivery that requires regular effort. He lands in a straight line at foot strike. He throws using quick arm speed through a ¾ slot. His fastball was between 84-87 mph topping out at 89. He threw his curveball at 67-69 mph with gradual break and good depth at an 11/5 plane. He threw a slider with tighter break than his curveball at 74-76 mph. He flashed a changeup at 70-72 mph.
