5-foot-17, 140-pound, smaller, athletic frame, showing good strength for his size. A right-handed hitting catcher, at the plate, wider even stance, higher hand set, bat has tilt to it, hands are loaded. The lower half is under control, smooth knee to knee load for timing. The swing is short and crisp, right across the chest. The barrel has life and whip out front on contact, rolling hands late, stays through the baseball, with a middle of the field approach.

Defensively, setup behind the plate is balanced, working low to ground, feet are clean in transfer, could get glove to come right across chest, will help with pop time.

A right-handed hitting catcher, at the plate, had a tee exit of 74 mph, hands are strong for his age, approach more to pull side. Could let baseball get deeper and have more of an all fields approach. The stance is even, hands are back swing level through the zone. The lower half is under control, small pick up and put down, backside could be engaged a bit more. Defensively, threw 63 mph down to second, with a pop time of 2.53. The glove is soft on the catch, longer transfer, steps through and gains ground. The footwork could shorten, along with glove to hand being quicker across face, at times is lower path to hand, will help with pop time. Shows to have athletic actions.
