Silky smooth mover in the box with obvious athleticism to patterns. When he gets on plane he absolutely lands on baseballs. The upside/tools here aren't hard to see. Upper 70s batpseed, 20+gs of rot acc, and mid 90s EV. One of the more highly followed bats in the state. Defensively, the arm continues to progress into a big time tool as he tossed it with 86mph strength to home plate. How foot speed progresses will likely determine future destination as he shows solid ball skills with natural/function athleticism.
