Offensively: RHH. Wide, slightly open stance with the hands high at the ear in the setup. Utilized a short and quick leg-lift with quick hands launching through a slightly uphill path with twitch.

Defensively: The primary outfielder demonstrated a low center of gravity with short and quick lateral movements during defensive evaluations. Rhythmic approach with a soft glove hand that played through the baseball on the ground and adequate catch and throw skills with solid momentum towards the target. High ¾ slot with length in the arm swing and accuracy to the plate with repeatable actions. OF - 78 mph
