Physical: Advanced, strong 6-foot-2, 195lb frame with projection left. 8.46 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH - Wider, bent into the backside stance with the hands calm and slotted at the shoulder. Utilized a leg-lift stride to initiate the swing through a direct, flat path with leverage available. Easy burst and long arms, extended at the point of attack. Displayed a T97 mph bat-exit velocity and accrued a 42% hard hit rate during his round. Extra-base hit approach that continues to develop in game. 

Defensively: The primary backstop featured a soft glove hand on the receive from right knee down. Pop times ranged from 2.21-2.28 out of the crouch (74 mph, accurate), using the turf at times on throws.

Pitching: RHP - The righty starts tall from the middle of the rubber; good direction down the mound and gains some stride length towards the mitt. Full arm action (H ¾ slot) and peppered at 77-80, T81 mph for strikes. Mixed a short 68-70 mph CB (11/5 shape) and could manipulate. Turned to a 70-72 mph straight CH when needed, too.

Showed a flat swing path with a one-handed finish.  More flyballs than line drives and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 90 MPH via Trackman.

Defensively: Starts with a low to the ground setup;  while stays low while receiving. Hands work through the ball with a clean transfer. Short take back  from a standard 3/4 arm slot.  

Pitching: Clayton uses a center rubber setup working primarily from the stretch. Belt high leg drive with a slight lean over the belt. Has a moderate stride while landing slightly closed.

5-foot-10, 160-pound right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and uses a leg-lift stride to begin. Showcased a line drive, middle of the field approach.
