6-foot-3, 197-pounds right-handed hitting first baseman and outfielder, long, strong frame with much more strength to come as he continues to physically develop. Offensively, starts upright in a narrow, open stance, strides long with a smooth hand load back, good balance at contact. A predominantly pull hitter, strong hands/wrists maintain above average barrel speed through contact, elevates the ball and drives it with force, even on mishits the ball comes off his bat hot due to his overall strength. Hunts pitches middle/in and lets the barrel fly, gets into his lower half well. Has shown time and time again that his ability to hit is just as good as the power he possesses in his bat, barreling up pitches against any level of pitching.
