Positional Profile: 3B/RHP
Body: 6-foot-1, 165-pounds. Wiry strength, room for physical development
Defense: Loud actions with the body and feet. Glove is simple and direct when the ball is approaching. Quick transfers and release when moving laterally and in.
Arm: RH. INF - 88 mph. Throws from a high 3/4 slot. Strong/quick arm with carry across the diamond, recorded at 88 mph (INF). Accuracy is less consistent while throwing on the move.
Hit: RHH. Moderate width in stance, hands are pushed back in setup, barrel held almost in a flat position. Small simple stride, holds his ground well. Some length is created early due to positioning of his hands.  Length is created early, but the swing plane is simple and direct.

Bat speed ranked 2nd highest at the event, clocked at 75 on Blast.
Run: 7.02 runner in the 60. 

Delivery: Windup has some tempo to it. Athlete on the mound. Consistent with the timing of his separation.
Arm Action: RH. Throws from a high 3/4 slot. Slight change in tempo with FB and offspeed.
FB: FB sat 84-86 mph, topped at 86 mph. Threw his fastball with more conviction than his offspeed. Has slight armside run. Had an event high spin rate on FB at 2169.
CB:Sat 69-70 mph. Has downward 12/6 break. Commanded well in the zone.
CH:Changeup sat 73-77 mph. Straight change, plays about 10 mph off his FB. Kept it down in the zone.


Medium 5’11” 135lbs build, physically immature at young age. Hits from squared base, loading hands up and back with some extra movement.  Downward upper body dominant swing plane. Barrel gets in & out of the zone quickly. 77mph exit velocity. Choppy steps towards the ball stopping feet occasionally.  Soft hands, fielding balls cleanly. 73mph arm strength across diamond. Ran a 7.39 60 yard dash. Should improve in all areas with continued physical development.
