5-foot-11, 170-pound athletic build. Ran an impressive 6.96 60-yard dash.  Had simple yet efficient mechanics at the plate from the left side. Starts open and uses a leg kick load to get back to even and create good energy towards the pitcher. During his stride he takes his hands slightly back to remain balanced. Showed good bat speed and was able to stay flat through the zone. Exit velocity was 69 mph with much more in the tank. From the outfield he used aggressive footwork to approach the ball and fielded it correctly, on his glove side foot. Would like to see him get in line to his target during his exchange as he has a tendency to fall off to his glove side. Registered a top velocity of 60 mph to home plate. On the mound the southpaw throws with average arm speed through a 3/4 slot. Fastball sat 68-70 mph complimented by his 1/7 curveball with gradual downward movement at 61-62 mph. Also flashed a slider that cut across the plate at 66-67 mph.
