Austin is a young versatile OF/1B. Austin shows the ability to play all three outfield positions well, with a good arm and being able to run well. To improve his play in the outfield, Austin needs to improve his first jump and his routes. Austin shows great potential as a hitter, displaying good hands and bat path, leading to great barrel accuracy. To improve as a hitter, he needs to focus on loosening his hands, and driving the barrel at contact with the top hand, this will lead to more pop. Austin is the type of player you want on your team as he's a good kid and a great teammate!
