Athletic two-way player for the Mavericks. Started on the bump and threw four innings surrendering one run on five hits while striking out three. Up-tempo wind-up and leg kick into a compact balance point. Slight hesitation in delivery throwing with shorter arm action from a mid-three-quarters arm slot. Lands square to the plate and finishes falling off to the first base side slightly. Fastball showed some arm side run at 77-80 mph and touched 81 mph. Harder breaking ball at 68-70 mph with tight 11/5 break. At the plate, Birchfield really didn't get a chance to swing it walking three times in the game and got hit by a pitch in his fourth at-bat. The uncommitted 2019 prospect is athletic and balanced in the box starting slightly open. He showed a short, level, compact swing path and great plate awareness battling through some counts to earn his free bases. More of a gap-to-gap line drive type hitter with occasional extra power.

Athletic body type and 5-foot-10, 170 pound frame. Hits from an athletic, balanced, open and slightly crouched stance at the plate. Minimal movement in load. Short stride and creates nice separation. Short, uphill swing path with some lower half involvement. Showed some quick bat speed and an 80 mph exit velo. Does a nice job staying behind the ball and took two really nice rounds of line drives. Gap-to-gap line drive type hitter with occasional pop. Surrounds the ball and works through it in the infield. Athletic set-up, solid base, and showed soft hands and a quick funnel to the belt. Throws with short arm action from a high three-quarter slot at 71 mph. Ran a 7.12 60-yard dash. Small side-step wind-up and controlled leg kick into a compact balance point. Clean hand separation and down to out lower half drive. Throws downhill with shorter arm action from a mid three-quarters slot with regular effort. Lands square to the plate with a forwards, uphill lean. Fastball sat 79-80 mph and change-up was 73-74 mph. Breaking ball showed tight spin and sharp 12/6 break at 69-70 mph.
