Offensively: RHH. Tall, open stance with controlled bat wiggle for rhythm in the hands at the shoulder as the barrel points upwards. Utilized a repeatable leg-hang stride while landing slightly upwards with the posture, hit into a stiff front side while launching the hands through a flat barrel path into the hitting zone. Not a lot extra going on the swing allowing for high level bat to ball skills in the box and a mature approach at the plate.

The right-handed hitter begins with a balanced, even stance utilizing a lift-and-replace stride to initiate his swing. Generated easy bat speed through a slightly uphill path allowing for occasional lift to the pull side gap. Showcased an overall impressive round of batting practice with advanced barrel control evidenced by an 80 mph bat-exit velocity. Ran a 7.30 60-yard dash. The middle infielder demonstrated adequate footwork with above average feel for his hands. Smooth transfers and a strong 82 mph arm-strength with present carry out of a fluid, high ¾ arm-slot should allow for him to stay on the left-side at the next level.
