Hit: Right-handed hitter that starts in an upright setup. Aggressive swinger with rotational sequence to stroke. Ball jumps when squared. Strength is obvious to hands with bat speed playing as more than serviceable as well. Pull side approach.

Max BP Exit Velocity: 94mph.
Max BP Distance: 337ft.
Field: Solid showing in the outfield. Smooth, fluid actions throughout sequence. Ball skills appear to be ahead of the curve for class. Also worked out in the infield where he appears to be at homes. Feet work well and he looks to have feel for the position.

6/17/20 Pitching
Scouting Notes:6-foot-3, physical presence on the mound. Works with an easy tempo that picks up a bit during the acceleration phase. Long lever type who gets down the mound well. Tosses a heavy fastball that will have some late life to both sides of the dish. Breaking ball pops out of the hand with an 11/5 shape. Decent feel for the offering. Completing the arsenal is a changeup with decent sell.
