Physical: Solid blend of athleticism and physicality in an advanced 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame. 7.66 runner in the 60-yard dash.  

Offensively: RHH. Bent, balanced stance with the hands starting with slight rhythm out in front of the shoulder. Utilized a back load coupled with a large leg kick as the timing mechanism generating plenty of lower half rotation upon entering the hitting zone. Barrel worked through a whippy, slightly uphill path allowing for hard contact to the LCF gap and showcased a feel for an adjustable lower half that was on time to pitches in any quadrant. Hit into a stiff front side while recording an 88 mph bat-exit velocity during batting practice per Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The middle infielder displayed adequate and active footwork in the approach while keeping the glove down low through the fielding window. Fielded the ball off the left foot allowing for some momentum towards the target. Nice, low center of gravity while moving laterally allowing for quick actions in the middle. Recorded accurate throws out of a high ¾ arm slot with a moderate takeaway. SS- 74 mph
