Hit: Starts in a wider and athletic stance with hands held at shoulder height.  Used a toe-tap load and stride, as well as a simple pick up and put down load and stride.  Front side was weak at times, however, for the most part, turned the barrel aggressively by driving his back knee through the ground to create power.  Hit to all fields.

Arm:  Low release, short and quick arm action. 74 mph IF velocity.

Defense:  Liked his pre-pitch routine.  Athletic mover, caught everything clean and out front with soft hands. Made a nice bounder play, using two hands, to end his defensive round.  Definitely has a chance to stick at SS in the future. 

Run: Posted a 7.53 in the 60.
