6/6/17
Left-handed hitter that starts in a tall, open setup. Uses leg kick to initiate loading sequence. Barrel stays fluid prior to launch. Swings with intent on a slightly uphill path. Showed well above average bat speed with impressive pop to his pull side. In the infield footwork is quick and actions are confident. Gets solid reads off the bat and has a quick first step. Has the tools to stay in the middle of the field at the next level, with the athleticism to play either side. Arm strength will likely determine where he ends up.
60-yard dash: 7.11
Infield Velocity: 83
Exit Velocity: 89
