Physical: The recent Alvernia commit stands 5-foot-10, 210lbs with durability/strength found. 7.76 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Wider, strong-based attack with the hands starting calm by the shoulder (loose). Utilized a lift and replace stride down to the toe, as the heel connected on-time for the trigger initiating a mostly flat path into the zone with good extension through the ball. One of the hotter hitters this summer over a full slate of PBRT’s and open showcases. A barrel finder that swings with intent, but does not sacrifice contact on the way, en route to a T93 mph bat-exit velocity at his peak (via Trackman). Handled both advantage count fastballs and two-strike breakers with accuracy to go backside with the hands. 

Defensively: The primary backstop featured much improved actions from a left knee down receive (calm, precise, good pocket awareness). Pop times ranged from 1.97-2.06 showing off a low postured base and some pre-catch rhythm. Able to transfer quickly to throwing ear and get rid at a H ¾, immediate slot (73 mph arm, accurate).

Phased into a sequenced front-side, hitting behind the ball en route to a T93 mph bat-exit velocity with consistent doubles power to the pull-side. Notched a 60% fly ball rate and a 333 foot batted ball distance at his peak (middle of the order approach). 

Defensively: The primary backstop featured increased actions in the crouch; posed comfortably in a left knee down stance on the receive, receiving softly in the pocket. Pop times ranged from 2.07-2.12 with a connected lower half and repeatable, fast footwork gaining momentum through the plate at H ¾ slot (74 mph arm). Tangible blocking technique with ability to get the hips around on the corners.
