Went 2-for-9 with a double during game action over the weekend while making loud contact on several occasions. Continues to show progress in his development behind the plate turning in pop times of 2.01-2.10 on throws of 77 mph from the crouch.  Also shows capable actions around the bag at first base. Outgoing, vocal player that other players gravitate towards.
