5-foot-7, 135-pound, average athletic frame, rounded shoulders, body works with minimal effort. A left-handed hitting 1st baseman, at the plate, a balanced setup, even feet, loose hands at the shoulder width. The lower half is smooth and under control, uses a toe tap, gains ground, could have more backside drive, backside doesn't come through all the way. The swing is level to up, flat through the zone, natural lift. The approach is from the middle of the field to right-center gap. The exit velocity was clocked at 75 mph, baseball comes off the bat well, has a ton more in there as he gets a stronger. The glove is super soft at first base, feet are clean off the bag, moves feet on double play starts. The arm action is clean, working from a 3/4 slot, clocked at 66 mph. Off the mound, works from the left-side, easy leg raise, gets loaded on the back side, arm action is clean from a 3/4 slot. The fastball was at 74 mph, late action, rolled in a breaking ball at 58-60 mph, needs more fastball hand speed. The arm works with easy effort, look for jump in velocity.

Exit Velocity: 75 mph

Arm Velocity: 66 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.90
