5-foot-11, 190-pound, strong physical athletic frame. Committed to Richmond, is a switch hitting middle infielder. The defensive game is advanced, the feet and hands work together. Prep steps and approach to the baseball are smooth, under control, gets around the baseball with momentum going towards his target. The hands are soft, works from the ground up, arm action is short and clean, clocked at 82 mph, with above average carry and flight to throws. Looks to be able to start and finish the double plays from both sides of the bag. Offensively, hits from both sides, shows strength on both sides. From the right, feet are inline, slightly wider than shoulder width. The swing is short to the ball, swing path is down to level, hands are very strong, approach was more middle to pull. From the left side, hands are loose, has a very minimal stride. The swing path is flat to up, approach was gap to gap. Good looking player, should be able to play all over the infield, top of the order hitter, look for big things from this one.

Forty-Yard Dash: 4.91

Exit Velocity: 92 mph

Arm Velocity: 82 mph
 

16 UA Classic in Bradenton

Switch-hitting SS, was very solid defensively, made all the plays, showed some arm. Struggled at the plate from both sides, struck out four times in two games, but appeared to have a decent middle approach, nothing terminally wrong probably needs to realize he’s a little guy and cut it down with two strikes. Being the rare switch-hitting SS people are certainly going to watch him closely. Hit in the 2- and 3-hole.

 
 



5-foot-9, 180-pounds with an athletic frame with room to grow. Ran a 7.44 60 yard dash. Hands work well as he can stay in the middle of the diamond. Shows a solid arm . Bats from both sides of the plate, showing a feel for the bat on both sides. Sets up wider on the left side but handles the barre;l with authority and direction. The right-handed swing is simple and on time. Sprays the field with line drives.
