60 Time: 7.78, Pop Time: 1.96-2.05, Position Velocity:  C-74, Exit Velocity: 81
5-9, 180-pound, RHH hits from a wide and even stance, uses a short stride to get loaded, hands go back and get a little lower, lower half creates a strong base but doesn't always clear the hips,  swing plane begins a little steep but can flatten out through contact, oppo approach.  Defensively, showed very quick hands and footwork behind the plate, gets rid of the ball with an efficient exchange and a short arm action through a high 3/4 slot.  throws were pretty accurate and popped some sub-2 pop times.

Max FB: 81, FB: 77-81, CB: 66-68
5-9, 180-pound, RHP uses a very slow and calculated motion, slow tempo that builds to quickness only at the very end, stays tall and strides in line but can fall toward the 1B line at times, arm action is short and quick through a near over-the-top slot.  Fastball is mostly straight but can bear down on a righty, curveball showed some sharp 12/6 to 11/5 action through the zone.
