Open stance with toe tap to open stride. Gradual load with hands in firm position. He stays stacked at launch and has a direct path with his hands and creates a consistent path. Shows lower half strength and rotation. Middle of the field approach with a slight lift to extended finish. Very consistent barrel contact and timing. Top exit velo of 92.9 mph. Good athlete who was 74 mph across the diamond.
