Liked what I saw from Christopher. Will take a solid BP, but swing really shows up in game. Nice, level stroke with a balanced offering of strength and speed through the zone. Sees the ball well and has feel for squaring up the baseball. Showed sneaky pop for frame as well, driving the ball with authority a few times in game. A sure-handed defender up the middle. Not flashy but very reliable. Hands are soft with above average ball skills. Can make plays on the move and has the ability to use multiple arm angles. Solid, well-rounded player.

A middle infielder that moves light on his feet and reacts well off the bat. First step is quick and lateral mobility is above average. Hands are soft and he plays through the ball with solid ball skills. Projects as an ab

Exit Velocity: 75ove average defender that has a chance to stay in the middle at the next level. Starts in an athletic setup from the right-side at the plate. Loading sequence is fluid, incorporating a bat tip/leg kick combination. Swing is compact, working on a downhill path. Swing is very efficient in general and any added strength should translate to added pop. Stays inside the baseball well consistently spraying line drives to the middle of the field.

Ran a 4.87 from home to first. Christopher looks athletic and confident in the infield. Actions are smooth and he does a nice job creating angles/maintaining momentum with his feet. Displayed some of the top glove skills at the event and showed urgency to his transfer. Arm is an average to slightly above average tool (74 mph across the diamond) but with his quick transfer it shouldn’t hinder him staying on the left side of the infield moving forward. At the plate he is very efficient with his loading sequence. Syncs up movements well, allowing him to create torque and launch from a balanced position. Path is level and he has a knack for finding the barrel. Will use both sides of the field, generating his most true ball flight to the middle. Topped out at 76 mph off the tee. Talented young prospect to follow.

A righty swinger that starts in a tall setup. Loading sequence is fluid and swing is efficient. Path is level with developing bat speed. Finds the abrrel often and works to all fields. Any added strength should translate to immediate pop. In the infield he uses, short quck footwork. Does a nice job playing low and fielding out in front of his body. Made all the plays in his defensive evaluation. In game play he made multiple outstanding plays, his best being a full extention diving play to his glove hand side.
