6-foot, 155-pound, average athletic frame. A well proportioned athlete, with room to fill out and put added weight on. A two-way player, at the plate, feet are even, slightly wider than shoulder width. The hands are held at the shoulders, back elbow extended out, bat having tilt and loaded up. The lower half is under control, simple pick up and put down with stride foot. The swing is flat through the zone, hands work with easy effort. The approach is more line drive from field to field, had a tee exit velocity of 81 mph and ran a 4.56 on his dig to first. Defensively, the arm works out of a ¾ slot, clocked at 70 mph, throws were on target. The footwork and transfer were clean, steps through with back foot, could stride out more will get throws  downhill a tick more. Off the mound, smooth easy repeatable delivery, direction is inline, minimal pull with front arm, gets squared up on release of the baseball, pounds the zone. The arm action is longer on the backside, slight jab at the bottom of the path, comes through from a ¾ slot. The fastball was clocked at 71-75 mph, threw it for a ton of strikes. The changeup has feel at 69 mph, correct shape and spin to it working to the arm side. The breaking ball was clocked at 61-63 mph, could be thrown harder. Projects more as a pitcher, showed the ability to throw all three pitches for strikes.
