5-foot-10, 185-pound, RHH hits from a taller and open stance with the bat rested right down on his shoulder, uses an abbreviated leg kick and stride with a push back of his hands and some barrel tilt to get loaded, stride can land a little too soon at times, lower half is simple but definitely gets his hips through the zone, bat path is very short and flat through the zone, showed the ability to hit hard line drives from gap-to-gap.  Defensively, showed average hands and footwork as he got behind the ball but didn’t play through it as aggressively as he could, gather and transfer took an extra step and led to a shorter arm action through a high ¾ release point, solid arm strength.

5-foot-10, 185-pound, RHP has a lot of energy on the mound certainly uses it to his advantage, begins his motion a little slower paced and under control and leads that into a quick and explosive finish toward the plate, hands begin lower and come up with his leg lift, strides just slightly closed and recoils a little bit upon release of each pitch and swings his back leg around his body, short arm action comes through an over-the-top slot.  Fastball showed run through the zone, curveball had some powerful and sharp 12/6 shape that was kept down in the zone, changeup had quite a bit of arm side run but could be a little erratic.
