Hips rotate completely with violence and he maintains good lower half balance. Hands stay inside, short and quick to the ball, slightly uphill line drive swing path, strength at contact with extension through the ball, showed a primarily pull approach with the ability to use the whole field, some power present with potential to grow into more, exit velocity was 90.
