6-foot-3, 165-pound projectable frame. During batting practice, the right-handed hitter clocked an exit velocity of 90 mph. Started in a balanced athletic stance with a controlled load, then used a small leg kick. Bat speed is efficient and has a rotational swing plane. Found lots of barrels with some loud contacts. Line drive approach. Above average while in the infield, made throws up to 79 mph; had smooth footwork. Out front fielding mechanics. Decent accuracy to the bag, used a high ¾ slot and a quick arm action. Performed well in the 60-yard dash, clocking a speedy time of 6.93. Norton showed nice, easy actions on the mound. The breaking ball (76-77 mph) was a power breaking ball that he showed the same slot as he did with the fastball. The fastball showed life at 85-87 mph, T88 mph with sink. The makings of a 90 + arm in the near future.
