10.31.15 Hit from a tall stance with balance.  Athletic position.  Slightly bent knees.  Small load back with a slight arm bar.  Short stride that stays on line.  Maintains balance throughout the swing but over rotates on the back foot from time to time.  Showed strong hands and had a good approach during the round.  Bat path was short.  Small rhythm. Repeatable.  Line drive swing that was gap-to-gap.   Behind the plate, threw from a H3/4 arm slot with a long arm action at release.  Showed some arm strength on the day.  Has more arm in the tank.  Exchange and footwork were quick.  Both could be more efficient which would increase arm strength and reduce on already good pop times.  Body has gotten better.  Hard worker.  Excellent leader.
