Physical left-handed hitter. Strong lower half and shows and advanced approach for his age. Swing has present strength and has bat to ball skills with power potential. 

6/13/19

Uncommitted 2022, tall, athletic frame at 6-2 180. Patient at the plate with good discipline. Quiet bat with a quick load and short stride. Easy level left-handed swing, showed a left-center approach with two doubles to that gap.

10/11/18 - Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot-1, 167 pounds with a projectable, athletic frame. Still growing into the frame and can get him out of sync at times offensively. The long levers has him a bit rotational and long, but when synced up has present power. As he grows into the frame, he could make some big strides offensively. Same went for the skillset on the mound. The arm works fairly clean, with the fastball ranging from 74-79 mph. Showed three pitch potential and as he grows into the frame and begins to repeat the delivery, access the lower half and use the frame to create angles, he could make some big strides in the near future. Overall, there is a lot to like and dream on from this young two way player.
