5-foot-4, 135-pound, smaller, strong athletic frame for a 2025. A right-handed hitting two-way player. At the plate, feet start even, slightly wider than shoulder width. The hands are strong, set higher than shoulder height, the swing is down to level to up, slight upper cut, could flatten a tick. The approach is more middle to pull side, creates backspin to the baseball. The exit velocity was clocked at 76 mph and ran a 7.60 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, from the outfield, a longer arm action, working from a higher slot. The arm was clocked at 72 mph, with flight. The backside collapses, could stay stronger. Off the mound, works from the set position, simple leg raise, inline direction, softer front leg, could stick the landing with a firmer frontside. The arm action is longer and clean, working from a higher slot, pitched the baseball downhill, lived in the bottom part of the zone. The fastball was clocked at 65 mph, and mixed in a breaker at 55 mph, will need to add more fastball hand speed to it. Offensively shows strength in the hands. 

Exit Velocity: 76 mph

Arm Velocity: 72 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.90
