A middle infielder type with a very athletic frame. Plays low and under control as he reads his hop. Actions are fluid and athletic, looking to have above average ball skills. Lateral mobility fits the middle, moving well to both sides. Solid defender. At the plate the right-hander starts in an open, athletic setup. Goes with a knee pinch while taking hands slightly back to launch. Swing is compact with above average bat speed and strength to his hands. Swing shows natural loft, allowing him to lift the ball with easy. Can get a bit too uphill at times. Produces natural ball flight to the middle of the field, with impressive opposite pop to his opposite field gap.
