Positional Profile
: SS
Physical
: 5-10, 165-pounds; 7.23 runner in the 60, 3.97 30-yard split, 1.74 10-yard split, 28” vertical jump. Lean strength on average size frame, put together like an athlete, well-proportioned.
Offensively: RHH. EV max – 91.9 mph, sweet spot% - 60%, line drive% - 20%, hand speed max – 22.3 mph, bat speed max – 69.8 mph, bat speed avg – 67 mph, on-plane efficiency avg – 64%; rotational acceleration avg – 8.8; Balanced set-up, feet shoulder width apart, barrel starts high (ala Ryan Braun), feet squared, small early stride as hands stretch into launch position, slides hips a little prior to rotation getting backside through, has barrel control, easy swing, low one-handed finish, maintains balance.
Defensively: Arm wasn’t feeling 100% which prevented him getting off throws that reflect his true talent when healthy, athletic feet, soft hands with confidence in those hands, sets up to ball cleanly with feet in position to get off quick throws.
