Offensively: RHH - Balanced, crouched stance with the barrel resting over the backside in a Kris Bryant-esque setup; utilized an early barrel tip coupled with a toe tap stride in order to initiate the bat head through a violent, slightly uphill path.

Blocked well with lateral movements following the glove hand .. The third baseman featured average footwork arriving on time with the feet from a moderately low posture; soft glove hand fielded off the middle of his body, accurate 81 mph arm strength across the diamond giving him some positional flexibility at either corner IF spot if need be.

June 2018 

With a short stocky build, Harper is a all around solid catcher. While behind the plate, he is very smart and sets up well for pitches. He has very quick reaction and breaks down excellent on balls in the dirt. He has a quick transfer from the glove and pops up well when throwing the ball down to second. At the plate he has a short compact approach, and he keeps his hands inside goes opposite fields with power.
