Body Type:  5-foot-11, 145-pound athletic frame.

Swing Mechanics:  Simple load with minimal movement that gets his entire body in sync.

Hit:  Uphill bat path with a pull side approach.  Produces natural ball flight to the middle part of the field.

Power:  Line drive guy with more to come as he develops and adds size.

Offensive Projection:  TBD.

Field: Open stance with a smooth transfer and developing footwork.  Receives the baseball well with developing blocking skills. In the infield he plays fast off the bag, offering above average athleticism for the first base position. Ball skills are developing.

Throw: High-3/4 right-hander with more strength to come as physical maturation takes its course.

Defensive Projection: C/1B.

A righty swinger that starts in a tall stance. Load is simple prior to launching from a balanced position. Compact, level stroke with developing natural tools. Offers more present strength than speed to his swing. Contact type guy with gap abilities to the opposite field. Run producer potential as bat speed catches up to strength with maturity. In the infield he plays off the bag with short footwork. Plays under control throughout sequence with ball skills that are on par for class. Looks to have feel for the first base position.  A young catcher that looks confident behind the dish. Creates direction and throws with accuracy.
