Hand is uncommitted and is 6-1 with a strong athletic frame. Has straight-line speed and is athletic and moved well taking ground balls and crow hopping to throw. Arm has strength, touching 90 on his throws. Simple swing with an easy set-up, strides on line, smooth load back to a slight wrap. Hips explode violently and rotate completely and he maintains some lower half balance throughout his swing. Hands stay inside, quick to the ball with strength at contact and extension through the ball. Slightly uphill swing path, shows a pull preference with real power and loft in his swing that way, shows extra base power to all fields.
