5-foot-11, 176-pound, super strong and athletic frame for his size and age. A left-handed hitting two-way player, showed extremely well on both sides of the field. At the plate, starts wider, even feet, slightly more weight starting on the backside. The swing is short and compact, a down to level to up path, hands are inside the baseball, gap to gap approach, showing to have enough juice to beat the outfielders. Shows the ability to handle the bat, puts the baseball in play with ease. The exit velocity is advanced, clocked at 90 mph, and ran an easy 7.15 sixty-yard dash. The hit tool is advanced. Defensively, plays up the middle, quick prep steps, builds momentum, having a soft glove, working low to the ground. The arm is quick, clocked at 85 mph, plenty of carry across the diamond. From the outfield was 85 mph as well, moves well, glides after ball, can go get it in the gaps. Off mound, fast tempo delivery, quick arm, up to 84 mph, attacks, having heavy sink to arm side fastball. Slurvey breaking ball at 66 mph, mixing in a changeup as well. Works fast and is super athletic off the mound. Projecting out as an offensive second baseman, with the ability to get to outfield as well. Old school ball-player.

5-foot-10, 157-pound, wiry strong athletic frame, showing real good strength for a 2024. A left-handed hitter, worked off the mound as well. The hit tool is advanced, wider setup, even feet. The hands are relaxed and loose at shoulder height. Simple pick up and put down, hands are back on foot strike and hits with a firm frontside. The swing is short to contact, hands are inside the baseball, barrel is in the zone a long time. The swing is level to up, finishing with a higher one-handed finish. The approach is middle to pull side, squared up the baseball one after another, showing enough pop to get the baseball into the gaps. The exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph and is a solid runner, ran a 7.-8 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, has a very good arm, clocked at 81 mph, working from a natural slot. Plenty of life and carry across the diamond. The feet are quick, moves well to both sides, gets off the blocks. The glove is soft, showed feel and actions around the bag. Off the mound, fastball up to 80 mph, with riding life to it. Mixed in a curveball at 65 mph, slurve break to it. The delivery is simple and repeats it, frontside could track longer to plate. Is aggressive, comes right after you. Projects out for me to be a high level offensive second baseman, love the confidence and really likes to compete.

5-foot-10, 160-pound left-handed hitting middle infielder and right-handed pitcher. Positionally, he ran a 7.28 sixty at thee event. The approach in the infield is solid, the feet need to remain active and he showed soft hands with the glove. The arm swing is long when he throws during infield play, he threw 80 mph across the diamond during the infield portion of the workout. The bat has an exit velocity of 92 mph. The setup is wide in base and the front foot steps into the ball as it approaches the hitting zone. The path is flat and clean to contact. On the mound, the fastball sat 79-80 mph. The spin pitch was 59-60 mph and big in shape, he will have to shorten the pitch down as he matures. The changeup was a split and sat 65-66 mph. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is slightly above 3/4 in height. The direction is solid on the top half as he stays with his arm and shows minimal glove pull. The hand speed on the secondary pitches needs to remain the same for all 3 of his pitches. He is a legit young prospect.

Exit Velocity- 92 mph

INF Velocity- 80 mph
