In the infield he has very athletic, fluid actions. Very smooth defender in general that makes it look easy out there. Could get rid of it quicker at times but arm plays as an above average tool for class.

Promising prospect with an advanced skill set across the board. Hit tool continues to impress from the right side. Loose, athletic stroke with more pop than frame would suggest. Drove the ball all weekend. Three-hole look to him. Not a flashy defender up the middle but ball skills stands out. Looks to be able to stay up the middle. Although he has more of a position player look to him, he also showed a very clean arm on the mound and ran it up to 82 mph.

The engine that starts the Force offense. At the plate, the 5-foot-8 SS shows the ability to drive the ball to all sides of the field. He has a simple leg kick, a simple load and smooth hands. A natural feel for batting. Produces a good amount of backspin. From the SS position he shows advanced skills when moving laterally and playing through the baseball. He’s clean with his footwork, transition and throws. Solid defender. On the mound the RHP starts tall and uses a slide step to start his momentum. His motion is almost effortless, throws from a 3/4. FB has some late life at 73-76 mph and CB had depth with 11/5 break. A definite prospect to follow and watch as he matures.


A well-rounded player with a well above average skill set for class. At the plate load is very fluid, incorporating athletic movements. Launches from a balanced position and generates impressive whip through the zone with noticeable speed/strength to hands. Offers an impressive combination of feel and pop. In the infield he looked smooth, showing off well above average ball skills. Actions are fluid and mechanically sound. Looks to be a sure-handed infielder that can make the routine play and move out of his funnel to make plays on the move.
