Demonstrated a physically advanced 5-foot-11, 180-pound frame. The right-handed hitter begins with a loose, even stance utilizing a knee-knock stride to initiate his swing. The barrel enters the hitting zone through a slightly uphill barrel path while hitting into a stiff front side with late give. Showcased some barrel whip evidenced by an 81 mph bat-exit velocity off the tee. Ran a 7.45 60-yard dash. The primary backstop featured adequate receiving skills with some stiffness at the catch point. Pop times ranged from 2.25-2.40 on accurate throws of 73 mph from the crouch. Displayed average blocking ability with soft walls to both sides of the plate. The outfielder showed fluid, athletic actions arriving to the ball on time allowing for a quick and fluid, high ¾ arm-slot to whip towards the target generating an 82 mph arm-strength from his position.
