05.21.17
Athletic in a 5-foot-9, 155 pound frame.  Ran a 7.07 sixty, playing with quickness.  Balanced setup in the box, from the right side.  Loads back, rocking to his front toe, but lacking a full stride.  Lower half works through the ball allowing for better than average bat speed.  Direct, simple, and balanced.  Produced a lot of barrel throughout the BP rounds.  Level, shoots line drives through the middle of the field with a fluid stroke.  Power may never be plus, but there is an ability to see balls getting into gaps.  Exit velocity topped at 82.  Soft hands and a fluid style on the infield.  Clean exchanges work to a long arm action with a high-¾ release.  Showed some accuracy, topping at 71 mph from short.  Arm may limit some positional decisions in the future, but the glove produced an easy catch on most balls.

Listed at 5-foot-9, 150 pounds and ran a 4.13 thirty.  In the box, works from a balanced position with a short stride and flat barrel, creating average bat speed. No load in the hands but uses a weight shift back to begin the timing process.  Works level, staying gap-to-gap.  Decent barrel awareness and repeats the swing consistently.  Exit velocity hit 80 off the barrel.  On the infield, arm strength topped at 70, with a long arm arc to a high-3/4 slot.  Hands work through some stiffness to provide decent feet, showcasing some quickness, getting to clean exchanges and creating some accuracy on throws.  Tested in the standing broad jump at 7-foot-9.
