2/16/20 Position Player
Hit: Easy, fluid stroke from the right side. Uphill tendencies at times. Offers a balanced combination of strength and speed to hands. All field spray in BP.

8/04/19

Body Type: 6-foot, 155-pound athletic frame.
Hit: Fluid swinger with feel for contact. Level path that runs into contact nicely. Worked pull side in BP but finds plane early so he should be able to work oppo in game. Solid round of BP.

Offensive Projection: Multiple Roles.
Field: Plays with an uptempo pace too and through the baseball. Quick feet with above average ball skills.
Throw: Arm works. Accurate thrower with jump out of the hand.

Curveball: 60-62 mph. 11/5 sharper pitch with big action. Looks comfortable with the offering and will toss it often.
