05.23.18
Strong build at 6-feet-1, 195 pounds. Uses a balanced setup from the right side with a short step for his load with little to no movement. Very quiet throughout his swing maintaining balance. Shows a short bat path to the ball with a gap to gap approach and the ability to line balls out. Above average bat speed with his exit velocity peaking at 87 mph. Behind the plate he shows average hands with clean exchanges and a short arm action working to an over the top slot with pop times recorded at 2.03-2.19. Pop times should improve with added flexibility and quicker feet. Accurate throws with his arm topping at 74 mph from the crouch.  A little high and tilted at times in his setup. Waggle through the hips while receiving. Hands work and cradle the ball, but body at times is caught in the waggle with the body swaying the wrong direction. Athleticism exists and there is room to the player’s ceiling. Recorded a 5.26 in the 40-yard dash.
