Average frame at 5-foot-1, 180 pounds with strength present.  Right handed hitter begins open, lacking a true load.  Short stride dives toward the plate.  Looks for extension with a pull tendency.  Occasionally cuts across while staying on the back leg.  Decent hand strength.  Exit velocity topped at 80.  Ran a 4.59 down to 1B.  Defensively takes a direct route, sitting on the catch position.  Feet lack some rhythm as he catches deep in his posture.  Clean exchanges work to a long, over-the-top slot with some effort.  Accuracy is present with average carry at 79 across the diamond.  
Intriguing arm on the bump.  Relief profile.  Stretch only.  Limited projection but the arm works with some quickness.  Fastball up to 86, sitting 83-85.  Seemed to play harder vs. hitters.  Showed an ability to elevate.  Slider ranged 72-76 with hard, late 10/4 action.  Similar window to fastball and produced some bad swings.  Change-up came out of a slightly different window with a slower arm.  Sat 75.
