6-foot-0, 185-pound, SHH continues to impress as one of the top players in the 2019 class with a similar approach from both sides of the plate, hitting from a balanced and slightly open stance with loose and relaxed hands, uses a smooth little leg kick and stride with a cocking of his barrel that moves his hands back with some rhythm to get loaded, lower half explodes from both sides of the plate and clears his hips to generate a lot of torque toward contact, bat path has continued to develop and flatten out earlier in his swing, stays behind the ball with a strong backside and drives up through contact to generate some serious gap power. Defensively, continues to get quicker on his feet and can certainly make every play at the corner when he plays confidently through the ball, arm comes through a high ¾ slot and produces firm throws across the infield.
