6-foot-3, 185 pound frame noticeably adding muscle to his frame since the last time we've seen him. In the infield works low to the ground keeping his nose low fielding the ball into his body, taking a step and throwing across the diamond. At the plate has a tall stance with his hands back in a loaded position. Has a slight leg lift load and swing making contact. On the mound steps left, pivots moving into the balance point where he rocks back and throws from a high 3/4 arm angle. Fastball sat 75-79 mph with late life. Threw a swing and miss curve with 11/5 break 68-70 mph and a 66-67 mph change up.
Home to 1st: 4.95
Exit Velo: 70 mph
Inf Velo: 72 mph
