A right-handed hitter that starts in an athletic setup. Uses a leg kick to get things started. Hands move back with rhythm and sync up his body well. Does a nice job remaining in control during his movements. Swings with intent and aggression. Hands are loose, producing impressive barrel whip through the zone. Drove balls with authority to his pull side. At third base he uses clean, athletic footwork prior to fielding. Plays with confidence and brings a high level of athleticism to the position. Glove skills were impressive and he has the arm to play the left side. Stood out among the rest behind the plate. Footwork is texbook and athletic. Transfer is clean and efficientt. Really impressive catch and throw guy all-around. In game he showed well above average receiving and blocking abilities. Threw behind runners with confidence.

5-foot-10, 165-pound prospect. Took an impressive round of batting practice with definite strength and batspeed through the zone. He has a fluid loading sequence that includes a leg kick and aggressive stride. Hands have some looseness to them. Very good when he flows into contact as he has a tendency to get to his front side early. Reached a top exit velocity of 84 mph and ran a 4.72 down the line. Behind the plate he recorded impressive pop times of 1.93-2.01. Has above average arm strength to second base. Throws were accurate. Has quickness to both his feet and transfer. Good player.

At third base he shows good range for his age and fields the ball into his body.
