Physical: 6-foot-1, 150-pounds. Lean, wiry frame with ability to add weight; 4.56 home-to-1B.
Offensively: RHH. Tall, upright, open stance, hands start slightly higher than shoulder level and work back on load along with a large leg kick for timing. Gets the head out early and generates some loft with a swing that works uphill after the point of contact with extension. Lots of hard contact to pull-side. 72 MPH raw exit velocity.
Defensively: Starts upright and approaches the ball with smooth footwork that gets choppy when getting low to field, fields the ball on his glove foot. Long arm swing with an over the top slot; OF - 78 MPH.
Pitching: Builds momentum with leg lift above the waist, glove arm gets up creating shoulder tilt as strides out to a closed landing with a repeatable release and balanced follow through. Mid arm action out of the glove to a high 3/4 slot.
FB: T81, 76-79 MPH. Downhill plane with arm side run.
CB: 66-69 MPH. Tight break with 11-5 shape.
CH: 68-69 MPH. Maintains hand speed with late arm side fade.
