Intriguing athlete at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds.  Plenty of room for added strength and seems to have maturity left in the body.  Right handed hitter works from a tall base and slightly open.  Leg kick loads the body back.  Aggressive stride as the hands pinch toward the body.  Better than average bat speed works flat through the zone, staying in the middle of the field with looseness.  Good feel for the barrel.  Exit velocity peaked at 92.  Defensively, has active feet and the ability to work from multiple slots.  Long arm swing showed carry and accuracy from the different angles, ranging from high-3/4 to low-3/4.  81 across the infield.  High at times with his hips, and funneling to a vertical position with the body, the hands work with some softness as he plays through most balls. 
On the bump the fastball sat 80-83 from a ¾ and low-3/4 slot.  Can dream on the ability to lower the slot further if needed.  Two seam presented run to the arm side while pounding the zone.  Breaking ball comes from a higher slot with gradual 10/4 shape at 68-71.  Flashed harder tilt at 71 and showed feel for the strike zone with the spin pitch.  Worked through his outing missing barrels and limiting stress.  Long arm action and low leg kick.  Stays level and in-line, finishing with an athletic posture.

Length with a strong build that stands out in the 6-foot4, 200 pound frame.  Aggessive and works to get the bat through the zone from the right side.  Exit velocity measured at 98mph.  Balanced and tall from the right side.  Uses a leg kick and short stride to set up the swing that has an aggressive backside through the ball.  Better than average bat speed, and some swagger in the box, the swing has good rhythm.  Set uphill with the path, from a low set of the hands.  Average barrel awareness.  Athletic feet and actions on the infield, plays with confidence.  Soft hands and fluid feet created clean exchanges to the center of the body.  A long arm swing with a high-3/4 release  measured 83mph across the infield. 
Fastball ran up to 81, sitting 77-79 with arm side run.  Filled the zone up with fastball.  Curveball lacked consistent shape at 68-69.  At times sweeping and at times showing short tilt.  The change ranged 70-77, depending on the arm speed as it slowed at times.  Rushed and choppy through the delivery, the shoulders work level and on-line from a tall balance point.  Long arm action works to a high-3/4 slot.  Extension is cut off at times.  Does repeat the delivery and shows a feel for pitching.

6-foot-4, 200 pound frame that can still add strength.  Has athleticism in the feet and hands on ground balls.  Caught the ball with ease, funneling with solid rhythm, to the mid-section.  Arm carried, showing at least average arm strength, with accuracy.  Does work to vertical prior to throwing.  Offensively, has an idea of the strike zone.  Uses a leg kick with a strength over quickness swing.  Bat path can get long as hands are set down and in on the body, utilizing a slight down-up load.  Found the barrel twice.  Swing works to stay middle, but will get aggressive and hooky when out front.
