Swing can be shouldery, but he attacks the baseball and has the potential to drive a gap (84 mph exit velocity) despite his lack of size. Also showed an ability to make mid-at-bat adjustments during game play. Defensively, he sets up behind the baseball well and posted 72 mph arm strength across the diamond.

Tendency to hook the ball, as he strides closed, cutting off a direct path into the zone and forcing his hands to work around his body. Defensively, he exhibited solid feet and hands with a short, repeatable arm action that generated 75 mph arm strength.
