At the plate, he showed a very solid set up and did a nice job of getting his weight back to begin the swing. Showed some nice top hand strength and the barrel stayed through the hitting zone a long time creating some juice. Really like the set up and fundamentals in the swing. Was very slightly open and used a toe tap approach to create power. Did a nice job from the OF and showed athleticism with the transfer and resetting of the feet. His throws stayed on line and he worked through his throws. Nice lateral movement on the IF with solid glove presentation. Nice feet and loved the action on the backhand play. Very solid young player.
