Butchee is a switch hitter at the plate.  When hitting from the left side, he starts open with his hands low. His bat stays flat through the zone, finishing high. Overall he displays good balance throughout the swing with average hand speed. Butchee showcased to be more of a contact hitter from the left side.

From the right side of the plate his swing its almost a mirrored swing, but with higher hands.  He appears more loose and athletic from the right side than he does from the left.  He posted an exit velo of 84 mph.

Defensively, he looks the part with above average hands and a good release.  Butchee has the ability to throw from multiple arm angles and plays through the baseball well.
