Long legs move well with twitchy hips and shows good stride length (7.21 60-yd dash). Balanced stance with even hands and wide elbows as bat rest on the back shoulder; loads hands deep with a slight armbar as bat gets into good attack angle. Projectable bat speed as bat work on a slightly upward path with strong body rotations while keeping hands tight and utilizing lower half for success to pullside (80 exit velo).
