Physical: Strong and projectable 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame with advanced physicality throughout the movements. 6.83 runner in the 60-yard dash showing off the sneaky athleticism he possesses. 

Offensively: RHH. Tall, open stance with a slight bend into the backside knee as the hands started with rhythm off of the shoulder. Utilized a lift and replace stride with a quiet approach yielding an explosive, flat barrel path to enter the hitting zone with intent after launch. Routinely got through towards extension with lift creating natural backspin to the pull-side and easy home run power to LF. Peppered the LCF gap with hard line drives / deep fly balls during a standout batting practice round, got into the legs well and used his long levers to repeatedly contact the ball at the front of the plate. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 99 mph per Trackman Baseball / 366 foot maximum batted ball distance to LF / 50 % hard hit percentage. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder moved extremely well for his size covering ground in all directions on balls hit in the air, solid drop step technique and was able to play low through the baseball at the fielding window, approached the ball off the left side of his body with smooth transfers and an accurate, high ¾ arm-slot on the release showing accuracy towards the target. OF - 83 mph
