Physical: Strong, athletic 5-foot-9, 180lb frame with durability that carries to all phases. 7.35 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Open, balanced stance with a strong base, as the hands begin loose at the shoulder; on time barrel tip with some stretch using a controlled leg hang, operating with a high intent launch through a flat path into the hitting zone. Natural lift in the swing creating backspin to the pull side gap, (33% fly ball rate) but was able to live mostly through the middle of the field in the approach during batting practice. Worked up to a T90 mph bat-exit velocity, back-spinning one swing to CF up to 303 feet via Trackman Baseball. Connected immediately in the swing allowing him to match pitch-plane early in ball flight (66% on-plane efficiency per Blast Motion). Middle of the order presence who can hit for both AVG and PWR down the road. 

Defensively: The primary catcher featured a soft glove hand and above-average receiving skills on the corners from traditional; pop times ranged from 1.91-1.95 in showcase setting with quick/replaceable feet towards the bag. Stayed under the pitch in catch/throw using a strong lower half to generate arm strength (T77 mph, carry) from high ¾. Beat the ball to the spot with down angles when blocking and added positional flexibility sliding over to the hot corner for a smooth defensive round. Moved the feet well laterally with confidence to his glove side. Medium/low postured position and found success with pace, working out in front with everything. Accurate throws across the diamond with slight arm-side run at 76-77 mph.

5-foot-9, 180lb durable frame; 7.65 runner in the 60 yard dash. Open stance at the plate with a relaxed upper half. Keeps the hands moving to maintain fluidity in the upper body. Works a small buggy whip hitch in the hands and a large stride forward into the pitch. Likes to get the hands extended and work uphill to induce hard hit fly balls and line drives. Registered a 92 MPH max exit velo. Small, compact set up behind the dish with soft hands. Stays low while throwing down to second, switches the feet quickly and delivers the throw from there. Registered a 71 MPH arm strength from the crouch. In the infield, beats the ball to the spot and gets around it with good direction to the target. Soft hands that funnel to the belt and throws through a loose, 3/4 slot. Posted a 74 MPH arm strength across the infield.
