Physical build with strength at 6 foot 2, 210-pounds.  Hits from the right side using an open setup.  Gets his feet back to even during his load with a short stride and hands working back.  Balanced swing with a line drive approach working mostly middle to his pull side. Short bat path at times with his barrel working flat through the zone.  Looks to get extension out front with average bat speed.  Exit velocity recorded at 91 mph.  Throws are around the bag to second base with his arm topping at 75 mph from a crouch position.  Clean exchanges with a short arm action, throwing form an over the top slot.  Pop times ranging from 2.18-2.22.  Receiving, presents a solid target.  Hips have some tightness creating a narrow base at times.  Recorded a 4.36 in the 30-yard dash, 4.72 in the 5-10-5, and 8-1 in the standing broad jump.

08.07.18
Physical 6 feet 2, 198-pound frame.  Strength is present in the build. Offensively he works from the right side using an open setup.  Dives back in to the plate using a short stride during his load. Average bat speed with his barrel working level through the zone, getting long at times. Works gap to gap with a line drive approach and exit velocity recorded at 90 mph.  Strength over quickness in swing.  Strength translates when on the barrel.  Behind the plate, narrow stance with good bend in his hips.  Average hands receiving.  Quick feet, with clean transfers and short arm action, throwing from an over the top slot. Works to a vertical base in the transition.  Some accuracy to his throws with pop times recorded at 2.00-2.09. Positional velocity peaked at 77 mph.

01.21.18
Physical build at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds.  Broad shoulders and a strong base.  Frame can handle more strength with time as well. Showed good bat speed and strength with an exit velocity of 89mph. Has power potential that he can tap into as he learns to use his lower half more. Works from a tall base with waggle in the bat head prior to a simple launch position, working to lag the bat head.  Barrel awareness will improve as the launch position becomes more consistent.  Rotational at times, working for extension, and peppering the middle of the field.  Has looseness in his swing, getting long at times but shows the ability to drive the ball. Good flex in the hips and an easy target.  Average hand speed can improve with age.  Works to an early vertical stance on throws with the transition around his waist.  Short arm action gets to an over-the-top slot with body posture leaning toward 3B.  Pop times ranged 2.12-2.20 with the release velocity at 78 mph out of the crouch.  Ball has carry and zip when he stays through the throw.  At times, throws faded into a runner, lacking the carry that his arm strength should supply.  Ran a 3.21 20yard dash/5.0 in the 5-10-5 and posted a broad jump of 6-10.
