The 2023 infielder put his smooth defensive abilities and athletic swing to work throughout the week showing he can play anywhere on the infield and look very comfortable.  During the workout portion Stokes made consistent line drive contact with exit speeds reaching up to 91 mph to go along with his 25 mph hand speed according to the Blast Motion sensor.  Where Stokes really shines is his ability to defend at a high level during the games showing his smooth rhythm and very good body control.  Programs looking for a steady defender that can stay at shortstop will find that in Stokes, as he has shown the ability to show up and play defense everyday at an impact position to go along with a balanced swing that continues to show improvement each time we see him.
