Offensive notes: High hands and high back elbow keeps hands in place on load and shows small sit. Barrel turns on time to work upward through the zone and one of the loudest barrels during the event. Easy carry and chance for some power as he matures. Able to have deep drives to gaps and that carried over to the games where he worked behind the ball and let the compact swing do it's damage. Heavy barrel and strength in frame come out consistently. 60-yard - 7.56 / EV mph - 96

Pitching notes: Stretch only. Lift with hands from waist getting hands to break and drive down the hill. Front leg is strong and able to utilize that to catapult arm. Compact actiont to 3/4 release and able to have CB/FB start in similar place. FB was straight with times of better angle arm side. CB was slurvy with later break and tight spin.
