Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame with fluidity in the actions. 7.01 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH. Balanced, even stance with the weight coiled around a slightly bent backside. Hands start with some bounce on the shoulder utilizing a repeatable lift-and-replace stride as the timing mechanism. The swing is fluid through a slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. Uses long levers to get deep through extension creating backspin to the pull side gap and natural lift on pitches up in the zone. Hit into a stiff front side while finding plenty of hard barrels during batting practice, 93 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball.  

Defensively: Easy movements in the middle of the field with a 4.0 pace during defensive evaluations. Clean footwork works well towards the glove hand side yielding above average range and showed the ability to display quick transfers in the middle. Can make the play on the run routinely with a soft glove hand and understanding of timing on the feet while throwing from multiple arm angles. Uses a loose high ¾ arm-slot on accurate throws across the diamond primarily. SS - 77.

Pitching: RHP - Featured an 80-82 mph FB from a slow tempoed, repeatable windup with high level hip / shoulder separation. The arm speed is real and generates high spin on the FB that plays well above the belt. Mixed a 65 mph slider with short horizontal bite.


Showcased quality feel for a lean 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame with present strength in his actions. The right-handed hitter begins with a balanced, even stance utilizing a repeatable lift-and-replace stride to initiate a slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. Demonstrated fluidity and rhythm in the hands allowing for advanced barrel whip through contact yielding natural pull-side lift during batting practice.

The right-handed pitcher sat 80-81 mph out of a whippy, high ¾ arm-slot using a repeatable and controlled windup to command the fastball down in the zone. Mixed in a 60-61 mph curveball with some feel for spin, featuring 11/5 shape. Countered with a 65-66 mph changeup showing occasional arm-side run, needing to be thrown with greater arm-speed to increase deception.


5-foot-9, 135-pound right-handed hitter initiates from a narrow, slightly open stance and works hard to the front side during his swing helping him record a 76 mph bat exit velocity. Showcased fluid movements and advanced footwork to go along with a loose arm during defensive evaluations. Notched 71 mph on throws across the diamond.
