A first baseman with the frame for the spot. Above average athleticism over there, showing impressive lateral mobility off the bag. Ball skills are more than adequate for the spot. Solid defender. A right-handed hitter at the plate that starts in a tall stance. Bat tip load during leg kick timing trigger. Level, whippy swing that offers a bit more speed than strength at this stage. Long lever type that can do damage when extended. Expect much more as he fills out very projectable strength. Two-way prospect. Very projectable on the bump. The southpaw has long limbs with a ton of room to add strength. Fast/clean arm that projects for more velocity down the road. Presently an upper 70s guy with the fastball but with that arm speed you could easily see him being a mid 80s guy before it's all said and done. The heater also shows regular run/dive. Breaking ball has 1/7 action with depth to it at 68-72 mph. Impressive feel for the zone. Can see him in a weekend rotation for a college program down the road.

6-foot-4, 185-pound. Left-handed pitcher with a projectable frame. Compact and efficient delivery, create some shoulder tilt during the stride works slightly across the body. Uses a short arm action through a three-quarter slot. Fastball works downhill 71 to 76 mph with slight cutting action. Breaking ball has 1 to 7 shape with gradual break at 65 to 69 mph. Also, offers a 68 to 69 mph change up with slight cut action. A righty swinger that starts in a taller stanc. Uses a leg kick for timing/energy with lower half. Loose swing with some barrel authority through the zone. Can spray it to the oppo gap with more louder contact to pull side. Expect more juice as he fills out frame. An above average defender at first base with the frame for the spot. Moves well around the bag and has fluidity to his action. Ball skills are on par for class.
60-yard dash: 7.17
Infield Velocity: 62
Exit Velocity: 86

A right-handed hitter that starts in a taller setup. Uses a small leg lift for timing. Barrel is fluid prior to launch. Path is downhill with well above average strength for his age. Gap to gap present pop with more left in the tank. Middle of the lineup look to him. An ideal frame for the first base position. Gets off the bag very well. Has feel around the bag. Would like to see him field the ball out in front of his body more consistently. Projects as a well above average defender at the next level. On the mound the southpaw brings athleticism and projectability. Uses an uptempo delivery that requires some effort. Arm action is clean while working through a high-¾ slot. Arm speed is developing. Worked both sides of the plate with his 72-77 mph fastball. Spins a 1/7 shaped breaking ball with gradual downward movement. The pitch showed signs of being an out pitch at 59-63 mph. Was consistently in the zone with both of the offerings.
