Showcased a long 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame with room to fill out as he matures and present athleticism. The left-handed hitter begins with a tall, slightly-open stance utilizing a knee-knock stride to initiate his swing. Demonstrated some sink into the lower half while the hips yank slightly off the ball to the pull-side. Displayed feel for his hands entering the zone through a slightly uphill path off the tee while hitting into a stiff front side, registering a 78 mph bat-exit velocity. Recorded a 7.15 60-yard dash. The first baseman featured long movements out of a low gravity setup with adequate feel around the bag. A quick first step created range to the glove side. Notched accurate 72 mph throws out of a long and fluid, high ¾ arm-slot.
