Arthur, a 2018 right-handed hitting corner infielder/RHP, stands at  6-foot-0 and weighs 155 pounds, ran a 7.45 60. Offensively- Starts with an athletic, athletic, balanced square lower half with the hands in front and above the back shoulder with the barrel of the bat nearly upright. Initiates the swing with a lift of the lead foot, moderate stride forward, while the hands are loaded straight back slightly outside the back shoulder while the barrel of the bat remains upright with some wrap towards the pitcher. Drove the ball with power from the pull side gap to the opposite field gap during batting practice as well as showing quick and direct hand path while showing plus bat speed. Registered an exit velocity of 84 MPH on the day.  Defensively- Put the body into a strong movement before the pitch using a two step technique. Fielded the ball from the center to the left side, however got caught back on the heels when fielding at times. The throws showed good accuracy and average carry as well as velocity at 78 MPH. Throws could improve carry and velocity with a quicker and more efficient transfer creating shorter arm action which would help keep the arm and foot work in sync; 2B/3B mold.  Pitching- Works from the center of the rubber, feet shoulder width apart, and both hands held in the center of the body chest height. Gets to the gathered position of the delivery with the lead foot stepping towards the first base line while the pivot foot remains center rubber and hands drop just above the waist then elevate above the height of the chest while the lead knee rises above the belt nearly chest height with the body keeping good posture. Sticks the landing with the lead toe directly towards the catcher and lead elbow working to the lead hip keeping the glove firm in front of the body. The fastball, thrown from a mid ¾ arm slot, showed sneaky life and plus movement, arm side run as well as some cut to the outer third, while topping out at 77 MPH. The curveball, topping out at 66 MPH, showed the ability to be a quality pitch with a more consistent release point. At times the pitch quality depth and tight rotation as well as 11-to-5 shape, but needs to have better extension and not pull hard the glove side with the pitch.
