Ahler’s simple right-handed swing allowed him to find the barrel for on-time, line-drive contact up the middle of the field on repeat. It’s a fluid, balanced swing and his defense is similarly smooth and rhythmic – and he reached an 88 mph high across the infield. Ahler was a fraction off the top 60 time of the day as well, recording a 6.71. He projects as an athletic middle infielder with a contact-oriented, line-drive approach.
