7/26/22

Quiet approach mechanically both nothing quiet about the tools. Physical, athletic, and explosive. Ran the gaps with ease in BP, and athleticism indicates he can play wherever in the lineup. Top exit velocity of 89mph. Can really pick it in the infield w/a legit change of staying up the middle at the next level. The position player profile is already extremely impressive but he also has a chance to be a high level arm. On the bump it's athletic, explosive, w/feel for entire arsenal. Up to 82mph down here w/reports of even higher.
