LeDuc is a 6-foot, 215 pound right-handed hitting two-way prospect. He hits out of a wide, slightly open stance. The hands are relaxed just off the back shoulder before taking an uphill path to and through contact. He uses a knee slide to stack the weight over the back side and uses the lower half well during the swing. His round produced a lot of solid contact and an exit velocity of 85 MPH.

Defensively, LeDuc was 76 MPH on his throws from the outfield. The footwork is good as he works to get into the fielding position. His exchange is clean through the ground ball and into the throwing motion. He creates a direct line and uses a short arm-swing to make his throws. He finishes over the front side, maintaining a good line with his target.

On the mound, LeDuc uses a simple, balanced delivery. His steps prior to getting balanced are controlled and small. He separates well at the top and uses a short, ¾ arm-slot to deliver a fastball that sits 71-74 MPH with some arm side run. He also mixes in a change-up 59-62 MPH that looks to still be developing.
