Really liked what I saw from Christopher, especially at the plate. A physical lefty stick whose well above average natural tools allow him to create effortless juice with a simple swing. Drove the ball all around the yard in BP and had three hits in game. Run producer type skillset. A good athlete that looked the part behind the dish and has the frame to play a corner spot if need be.

A smooth swinger from the left side. Movements are athletic and well synced, creating consistent balanced/timing. Sprays line drives to both fields showing the ability to let the ball travel or go get it without sacrificing barrel direction. Bat plays louder than exit velocity would suggest. Behind the dish he showcased above average exchange skills and received well in bullpens.

A lefty swinger that starts in a balanced setup. Takes his bat back to his shoulder during his toe turn load. Path is level and barrel showed some whip through the zone. Gets on plane early and stays through the baseball well. Bat speed is above average and the ball comes off his bat well when he found the barrel. In the outfield he uses calm footwork approaching the baseball. Fields teh ball with two hands to ensure ball secuirty. Gets sufficient use out of his crow hop while getting rid of the ball in a timely fashion. Arm strength is an above average tool at this stage. Behind the plate he starts in a mid crouch. Footwork is efficient and smooth. Transfer skills are adequate. Arm action is ideal for the position.

Lower half is simple but efficient. Creates solid whip through the zone with above average bat speed. Barrel flows to the middle of the field, creating a margin for error in timing.
