6/20/18

A righty swinger that gets things going with a double tap timing trigger. Hands stay simple prior to launch before accelerating the barrel through the zone on a slightly uphill path. Drove the ball well in BP with natural lift and backspin. Up the middle of the infield he plays with quick feet and can create angles. Ball skills are above average for class, showing middle infielder hands. Shorter arm action with developing strength across the infield.
