Body: 5’11”, 180 pounds. Strong, athletic body type.
Hit: RHH. Hits from a balanced, open stance at the plate with hands pre-set in a good hitting position. Small leg kick load and stays short to the ball with a level swing path.

Nice middle of the field line drive approach during BP.

Arm: RH. C - 70 mph. Throws with short arm action from a high three-quarter slot. 
Defense: 2.01 - 2.14 pop times. Quick side-step out of the crouch squaring shoulders to the target. Throws were on a line and the ball showed carry. Very quiet body receiving, stick the pitch well.

Flat bat path with line drive tendencies and average lower half involvement. Exit velocity was 85 mph and showed potential for power as he grows into his frame. Got out from behind the plate a little too quick on pop times, but had a quick exchange to a short arm action. Threw from a low three-quarter arm slot at 74 mph. Pop times ranged 2.01 - 2.16. Home-to-first time was 4.60.

Quiet body behind the dish and receives pitches well. Showed some lateral movement to block balls in the dirt. Gains ground on throws to second base with a quick, clean exchange and short arm action from a high three-quarters slot at 67 mph.
