Body Type:  6-foot, 180-pound physical frame.

Swing Mechanics:  Slightly open stance with small leg kick that engages his lower half, and keeps his hands loaded until contact.

Power:  Gap to gap guy with more to come as he develops, and adds size.

Offensive Projection:  Middle of the lineup guy.

Field: Actions work well in the infield. Plays the ball niceley on the left side of his body, maintaining consistent tempo throughout. Looks sure-handed.

At the plate he gets things going with a double tap timing mechanism. Hands move slightly back before accelerating the barrel through the zone on a slightly downhill plane. Swing is compact with good hand speed for class. A line drive type with pull side tendencies. Most natural ball flight came when he worked the middle of the field. An infielder with quiet feet and fluid actions. Ball skills are on parr for class as he fields through the baseball efficiently. Transfer is quick and easy prior to throwing with accuracy across the diamond. How arm develops will likely determine future destination in the infield.

60-yard dash: 7.31

Infield Velocity: 71

Exit Velocity: 82
