Registered a max of 90 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball with a top distance of 348 feet. Generated an impressive 73.10 mph bat-speed per Blast Baseball which is well above average in comparison to his peers. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman featured a low center of gravity with short, quick actions laterally and a soft glove hand creating more than enough confidence he’ll be able to stick there long term at the next level. Understands pace in the infield and utilized an inside move on double play footwork with ability to get back to the bag. The arm played accurately across the diamond out of a high ¾ slot. 1B - 80 mph
