5-foot-10, 155-pound, smaller athletic frame, longer loose limbs, with plenty of room for added weight. A right-handed hitting catcher, at the plate, the feet are even at shoulder width. The hands are relaxed and loose at the shoulders, bat starting in more of a flat position. For timing uses a small pick up and put down, gains ground and gets weight moving forward, which helps produce juice to the swing. The approach is more middle to pull side, connecting with one line drive after another. The exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph and ran a 7.72 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, is very sound, had a pop time of 1.96-2.09, arm was clocked at 76 mph, arm action is super smooth and clean, has more velocity in there as he physically matures. The hands are strong on the catch, secures the baseball, moves well, can receive and block. Solid looking catcher.
