5-foot-6, 150-pound prospect with small, athletic frame. Registered a 5.15 40-yard dash time on concrete. Projects as a second baseman Active body defensively with good feet and hands & accurate throws. Balanced stance offensively with slight crouch, good hand load with controlled upper cut and bat speed into zone. Runs into issues when he doesn’t square up the front side due to his load. When he does, he gets nice lower half torque. Has some front side leakage and needs to square up front side more consistently. Good small college bat and needs to get physically stronger.

Swisher projects as a second baseman at the next level. He shows quick, fluid footwork. He registered a velocity of 76 mph across the infield. At the plate, the right-handed hitter uses a balanced setup and small leg kick. His hands have a tendency to get away from his body, which creates a longer bat path. He registered a 7.19 60-yard dash time. 11/6/11 The 5-foot-6, 145-pound prospect has a small, but athletic build. While fielding, he consistently attacks and moves through the ball. He uses quick, short arm action to generate a velocity of 74 mph across the infield. At the plate, the right-handed hitter starts slightly open with a wide base, but displays the tendencies of a contact hitter, who can drive the ball to all fields. He ran a 7.10 60-yard dash.
