Hands load back with some rhythm, small pickup to striding slightly closed, and short path to the ball. Slightly uphill bat path, high finish, and stays on the ball through extension. Swing has some gap to gap potential with some projection to add strength and power to the frame. Exit velocity was 89 mph. Active and under control on approach to catch, clean exchange, and a crow hop to explode through the throw. Arm action was longer and showed some arm speed throwing from a low three-quarter arm slot at 84 mph. Home-1st time displayed some quickness with a 4.08.
