Impressive stature at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds with broad shoulders and a defined lower half.  Instant projection in the athletic frame.  Flashes potential throughout the workout, still raw in some aspects of the game.  Left handed hitter works from a tall base with his hands set just above his shoulder.  Loads with a slight shift to the back leg.  The hands remain stationary and fire from his setup position.  Short path showed some feel for the barrel, creating line drives gap-to-gap.  Quickness and strength exists, even with the hands firing from his set.  Exit velocity of 82 off the barrel could improve quickly as he settles into his lower half and loads the hands more.  Defensively, flashed soft hands at 1B, working with some rhythm and clean transitions.  Long arm arc gets to an over-the-top slot, working 81 on positional throws.  Quickness and power showed in a 3.01 twenty yard dash time and a 9’0” standing broad jump.
On the mound, there is effort as he works to an over-the-top slot, that can float down pending his timing.  Rolls through balance as he works to stay tall.  Fastball ranged 74-77 both running and cutting out of the hand.  Seems to play heavy, while erratic early in the bullpen.  Control improved in the back half of the pen.  Slows the arm on the change-up, working 68-69.  Breaking ball lacks shape from a slow hand, sitting 57-59.
