Body: 6’3’’, 165 pounds. Lengthy projectable and athletic frame. 
Hit: RHH. Slightly open, balanced stance with the hands starting loosely on the shoulder; utilized a toe tap stride to initiate his swing through a flat path from a gather load. Got to a wide launch position allowing for burst into the hitting zone; recorded a 33% hard hit rate during BP with quality hip shoulder separation on the way through. Impressive advanced metrics, notching a 24 mph average hand speed and an average of 19 G’s of rotational acceleration via Blast Motion.
Power: 96 mph exit velocity during BP per TrackMan. Doubles power and can run it out of the yard to pull on occasion.
Arm: RH. INF - 85 mph. Strong, whippy high ¾ slot with good extension. 
Defense: Quick first step with a low center of gravity in the movements, showed range in either direction beating the ball to the spot while showing increased route awareness. Prototypical shortstop build with a feel for pace; soft glove hand worked inside and outside of the left foot featuring give and take. Made the play on the run look effortless; advanced defender qualities. 
Run: 7.32 60-yard time.

Delivery: Started from the far left side of the rubber utilizing a methodical side rocker step into a quick leg lift and smooth, rhythmic drive out towards the plate with impressive backside leg drive. Really athletic delivery overall and finished his pitches out in front; everything worked on time and in sequence allowing for high-level repeatability on the mound. Up tempo and commanded the pace of his pen. 
Arm Action: RH. Whippy, high ¾ slot with increased extension on the front side.

CH: 79-81 mph. Thrown for 50% strikes and slight fade on occasion, solid fourth pitch in the arsenal. 
SL: 80-82 mph. Average spin rate of 2240 rpm. Developing feel on this date, mostly cutter movement. Still flashed a small, late horizontal shape (1.5 inches on average).
