Athletic makeup at 5-foot-8, 145-pounds that still has some projection left to it.  Narrow stance hitting from the right side, slow paced glide to stride, and hands load back and down with a slight bat wrap. Front foot strided in line and would benefit from some consistency of timing with foot strike. Swing had slight uphill tilt to it with some pull side tendency at times. Exit velocity was 82 mph. In the outfield Hicks was under control on approach, solid glove presentation, and a clean exchange. Utilized a back foot skip at times to get in sync. Arm circle was longer and throws from a three-quarter arm slot at 75 mph from the outfield. Ran a 7.80 60.
