Amari worked out at 3 positions during his last workout with The Factory. In the OF, Amari has active feet, agile movements, and he takes good angles to the ball. He fields in rhythm, fields athletically, and has a short arm action with momentum to his target. Behind the plate, Amari has agile movements, he sits in well, and he blocks and receives well. He is quick to his feet and has an accurate arm to 2nd base. At SS, Amari fields in rhythm through fluid/active feet. He has a soft glove, a quick exchange, and a consistent arm across the diamond. Offensively, Amari is equally as good from both sides of the plate. From the right, he has a still head, good separation, and a middle of the field approach. From the left side, Amari hits from a good base, he has a direct swing path, and he makes level contact.
