Strong, athletic build at 5 foot 10, 175-pounds.  Stood out defensively and offensively, posting a positional velocity of 87 mph and exit velocity of 95 mph.  Tall, slightly open setup from the left side of the plate.  Smooth load with a short stride.  Fluid, balanced swing with strength.  Looseness in the hands with some feel for the barrel.  Drives the ball gap to gap with some lift in the swing. Above average bat speed.  Athletic and confident on defense.  Plays through the ball with quick feet and soft hands.  Quick arm, using an over the top slot, with carry to his throws.  Recorded a 3.95 in the 30-yard dash and 4.49 in the 5-10-5.
Compact delivery working with a slow to quick tempo.  Average leg kick and stable head.  Lands on-line and square getting extension over the front side.  Short, quick arm action to a quick hand at a high-3/4 release.  Fastball rides out of the hand, seeming to have high spin rate at 78-80.  Breaking ball works with late, hard tilt at 63-67.  1/7 tilt and good action.  Maintains hand speed on the change-up at 75.  Around the zone throughout the pen.
