Merry is a strong right-handed hitter with above-average actions behind the plate, which is a noteworthy combination that should garner more next-level attention as he heads into his senior spring. He has a simple swing with natural pull-side lift that should make it easier for him to get to in-game. Merry’s strongest traits show best from the crouch, where he demonstrates a quick release out of the chute with carry to the second base bag. He popped a 2.20 to nab a baserunner attempting to steal second in-game.
