6-foot-0, 173-pound, RHH put an exclamation point on a strong summer, showing improved offensive metrics across the board, highlighted by the 94-exit velocity.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength, super projectable.  Has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Offensively, hits w/ a straight on, slightly crouched stance w/ bat resting on back shoulder into leg kick and deep load.  Generates above average bat speed through the zone.  Understands how to use his frame to generate bat speed, super intriguing as the frame continues to mature.  Lot of moving parts.  Up the middle approach w/ lot of line drives when right.  Showed pull power in BP, projectable all fields power as frame continues to mature.  Defensively, presents a quality low target, can open glove a bit more to give his pitcher a better visual cue.  Quiet receiver w/ strong fore-arms, shows ability to stick the baseball.  Mobile behind the plate, shows ability to box the baseball.  As a thrower, features plus arm strength w/ good footwork and solid release.
