7/21/20

Physical: Lean and athletic 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame with some projectability in the build. 7.15 runner in the 60-yard dash. Canisius commit.

Offensively: LHH. Tall, slightly open stance with a minor bend in the knees as the hands worked next to the ear with rhythm as the barrel pointed over the backside. Utilized a controlled leg-hang stride to initiate a rhythmic, slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. Showed advanced feel for his hands in the box with ability to match the plane of the pitch early and often in the swing, strong top hand with solid direction / found a home in both gaps with hard line drive contact. Stayed in the legs allowing the barrel to shoot offspeed pitches through the middle of the field in game action. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 92 mph according to Trackman Baseball / top batted ball distance of 301 feet. 29 % line drive rate during his round of batting practice / 14.3 % “hard hit” percentage. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder featured athletic, rangy actions with solid straight line footspeed towards either gap. Got around the baseball with regularity creating downhill shape on routes while approaching the ball off of the right side of his body, soft glove hand with smooth catch and throw skills out of a high ¾ slot / accurate towards the plate, could handle one or two of the outfield positions at the next level. OF - 78 mph

Defensively:  Good and active footwork to get himself in position; low line drive throw; smooth transfer. Medium arm swing; 3/4 arm slot.   OF - 80 MPH.
