5 foot 6, 158-pound build.  Small frame with strength.  Hits from the right side with a tall setup and more weight on his back leg.  Small leg kick during his load with his hands working down and back with a small hand pump.  Weight stays back during the swing with an uphill bat path.  Stays fluid getting extension out front working mostly to his pull side.  Average bat speed with his exit velocity recorded at 83 mph.  Quick footwork on the infield with some stiffness at catch, lacking some rhythm.  Funnels to the belt after catch using a short arm action, throwing from a ¾ slot.  Some accuracy to his throws that topped at 77 mph across the diamond.  Quick feet through his throws to second base with his velocity reaching 71 mph from a crouch position.  Transfers just above the belt with a medium length arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Pop times recorded at 2.18-2.22 with some accuracy.  Recorded a 4.25 in the 30-yard dash, 5.15 in the 5-10-5, and 7-9 in the standing broad jump. 
On the bump, uses a simple side step to pivot and lift to an average balance position.  Clean separation to a short arm swing, loading the scapular.  Works with a quick hand, landing slightly closed across his line, with a square toe.  High 3-4 slot.  Fastball worked 77-79 with occasional, slight sink.  Breaking ball is early, rolling through a 11/6 tilt at 70-71.

Slight frame with athleticism at 5-foot-6, 155 pounds.  Right handed hitter. Open setup with the weight loaded on the back side.  Waggle in the bat through launch with the bat head getting to a vertical position.  Small stride. Average bat speed with some barrel awareness. Line drive approach with a slight pull tendency as he works for extension.  Fights for rhythm at times as waggle through load creates some different positions for bat head. Exit velocity at 81 mph off the barrel. Defensively, works to play through balls.  Active feet. Average hands. Quick, clean transfer at the mid-section. Short arm action to a high-¾ release and quick hand producing average carry at 77 mph across the diamond. Ran a 7.85 sixty on the laser timer.

01.21.18
Small frame has strength present.  Stands 5-foot-6, 145 pounds and was 82 across the diamond with an exit velocity of 80 off the barrel.  Right handed hitter starts open, using a leg kick and short stride to get back to even.  Loose hands, loads with a lagged bat head, pointing back to the mound.  Works to get to a consistent launch position, limiting some barrel awareness.  When on time, there is above average batspeed.  Shows an ability to drive the ball, working the middle of the field.  On the infield, soft hands and quick feet, while working to play through the ball.  Keeps his athleticism on the transition.  Long arm swing gets to a high-3/4 slot.  Plenty of carry to allow him to play on the left side of the field.  Ran a 3.17 twenty yard dash and a 5.34 in the 5-10-5 agility shuttle.  Standing broad jump of 7’3”
On the mound the fastball worked 72-75, touching 76 with run.  Side saddled taking his sign, the delivery is very simple and repeatable while.  Extremely aggressive demeanor, there is quickness in a long, loose arm swing and high-3/4 slot.  Some effort to the delivery, staying level, and landing on-line.  Breaking ball has a hard, downer action at 64-66.  Tight spin has the makings of a power pitch.
