1.15.18

6-foot-1, 175-pound, strong, long, athletic frame. The neck is long, shoulders are sloped, has plenty of room for future development, should end up being pretty physical. A right-handed hitting, left side infielder. The top tool is his bat, at the plate feet are even, just so slightly wider than shoulder width. The hands are loose and relaxed at shoulder height. The bat has some tilt to it, with the writs and hands loaded up. For timing uses a controlled leg kick, stride is smooth and gains ground, hands have separation from the body. The swing path is flat through the zone, its level across the chest and finishes high with one hand. The approach is from gap to gap, hands stay inside the baseball, with the barrell being in the zone a long time. Repeats the swing with ease and showed the same pop with both metal and wood. The tee exit velocity is advanced at 89 mph and ran a 7.52 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, arm is a tick above average, clocked at 80 mph, has plenty of carry and flight. Throws are on the bag. The hands and feet work well together, prep steps are correct and gets momentum moving towards his target. Double play feeds were performed correct. Projects for me as more of a third baseman, can handle short if needed at the next level, but third is where he should end up. Good looking player, someone is going to get a good one.

Tee Exit Velocity: 89 mph

Arm Velocity: 80 mph
