Becker is 5-foot-9, 160 pounds (up 20 pounds from 9/2015). Ran a 7.30 60 (with a 6.84 on record) Offensively- Lefty, upright, open stance with hands at ear level off of the back shoulder. Starts with flat barrel and gets it to nice angle during load. Solid stride and uses quick hands and explosive backside to drive through the ball. Nice lift to swing and finishes in balance. Head changes plane slightly but has a good exit velocity of 85 MPH. Defensively- Very active feet with a lightning quick transfer. Soft glove moving in all directions and does a great job of getting body moving toward first base. Low-3/4 arm slot and threw 80 MPH across the diamond with him up to 83 MPH in the past.

Stands at 5-foot-9, 140 pounds, with an athletic body build.  Defensively - He has a smooth approach through the ball, with smooth, soft, quick hands, throws with a quick release, strong arm across the diamond, plays through the ball, with lots of range, accurate to the target.  Offensively - At the plate his setup is relaxed and very balanced, short leg kick stride, with a smooth load.  His hands are very compact and strong, swinging on a level plane with a shoulder high finish, full extension through the ball, with an athletic balance throughout the whole swing.

Defensively- Has above average footwork and range for his age, good hand and glove work, stays deep but has a clean transfer and quick release, arm slot is high-3/4 with a very accurate arm.  Showed impressive range in game play.  Able to throw from numerous arm angles when needed. Offensively- At the plate has an athletic approach and is relaxed at setup, has a smooth load and short stride to the pitch, hands take a short, quick path to the ball, has some uphill tilt in his bat path with an athletic, high finish.
