Blair is a tall, athletic LHP/1B who has a bright future on the diamond. At the plate, he displays well above average hitting abilities with outstanding power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick (89 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At 1B, defensive abilities are outstanding as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active and he displays proper footwork around the bag. Glove action is soft /sure and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves and he increases foot quickness. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 70-72 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Control is well solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Blair has the makings of a special type player and will get looks with his baseball abilities.
