5-foot-5 140-pound, average athletic frame for a 2025. Showed very well on both sides of the field, a two-way player. At the plate, even feet, hands at shoulders, more of a flat setup. The lower half is under control, hands have separation, are back on foot strike. The swing path is level to up, more of a middle to pull side approach. Creating natural lift and loft, has very good power, had an exit velocity of 82 mph. An average runner ran a 7.90 sixty-yard dash, look for time to drop as he gets physically stronger. Took a very impressive round of batting practice. From the outfield threw 71 mph, approach is under control, arm working with minimal effort from a natural slot, long and loose. Off the mound, simple delivery, athletic leg raise, in line stride, lead arm can track longer, pulls off. Showed feel for two pitches, fastball was clocked at 66 mph, located down in the zone. The breaking ball has very good spin, spin rate was up over 2100, thrown for strikes, clocked at 58 mph, a ton more in there. Serious potential to hit at some point.

Exit Velocity: 82 mph

Arm Velocity: 71 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.90
