6-foot, 160-pound, wiry strong athletic frame, a twitchy athlete, with room for added strength. A right-handed hitting middle infielder, super smooth with glove, plus actions and flow to both sides of the field. Working/fielding out front and low to the ground, comes through the baseball. The arm action is short and clean working from a natural slot. Clocked at 82 mph, plenty of life and carry across the diamond. The starts and feeds are on time. At the plate, wider setup, slightly open, hands are relaxed and loose, level to up path, hands inside the baseball. The approach is to all fields, showing enough juice to get the baseball into the gaps, had an exit velocity of 93 mph. A firm front side, is behind the baseball on contact, with length on follow through. Big follow, look for the strength to climb.

Exit Velocity: 93 mph

Arm Velocity: 82 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.21
