Sturdy, 5-foot-10 165, Branham maintains reliable outfield actions.  His rhythm and footwork are that of a natural outfielder, placing him in a good position to throw with an efficient exchange. He throws from a ¾ slot providing a touch of run that he compensates nicely for. His throws maintained a low trajectory and were on target often utilizing a long hop.  In the box, he starts from a narrow open stance, using a leg kick trigger, striding closed. He displays a backside approach with a lofted swing path that provides carry when ball strike is square.

Branham throws from a ¾ slot with consistent arm side run to his fastball, 71-73. He maintains a slight cross to his delivery with some wrap to his arm action. He demonstrates a feel for breaking ball spin but off speed is lite.  He has a serviceable third pitch in his changeup, 64-70. Presently a soft lefty, strength and weight gains may result in improved velocity and provide a higher ceiling.
