Offensively: LHH. Balanced, even stance with slight rhythm in the hands as they bounced on the shoulder in the setup. Utilized a controlled toe-tap stride to initiate a fluid, slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. The top hand dominated the swing allowing for short time to contact, and plenty of impact at the front of the plate during batting practice. Hit into a stiff and adjustable front side creating repeatable actions in the box and quick adjustments at the plate in game action. Generated occasional lift to the RCF gap with a high finish and recorded a max of 93 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. A 72 mph peak barrel speed according to Blast Motioned further evidences the power he displayed in the box. 

Defensively: The primary third baseman featured quality footwork arriving to the baseball on time and out in front of the left foot with a soft glove hand playing aggressively out in front. Was able to generate low posture through the fielding window and get downhill through the target with the momentum allowing for a quick, high ¾ slot on the release across the diamond. Made the play on the run with ability to change arm angles with accuracy. 3B - 82 mph
