Slack had an impressive all-around day. After running a 6.8 60-yard dash, the 5-foot-9, 165-pound two-way player, flashed power to the pull side as he elevated the baseball with an exit velocity of 90 mph, driving the ball deep, including hitting a home run foul. Starting from a tall, open stance, he turns his hips using a leg kick as he strides forward, loading his hands back and down into a front arm bar. Rotates to contact, working on an uphill path as he snaps the barrel through with a high finish. During the game, he flew out on the barrel to centerfield during the game, and got a hustle-double down the left field line. Showcases easy actions in the outfield with smooth rhythm, quick footwork, and clean transition into an athletic crow hop that allows him to generate significant arm speed with a top velocity of 87 mph.  The left-hander pounded the strike zone with a FB/SL/CB mix, working from a ¾ slot with his fastball at 83-85 mph with arm side life. His slider is sharp with 10/4 shape and depth at 75-78 mph, and acts more like a cutter with late depth. Also mixed in a 69 mph 11/5 curveball that pops up out of his hand but finishes with depth.
