Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date at 7.90. At SS, feet are active as he works to square balls up and displays soft / clean hands as he makes all the plays. Throws are accurate with life and on line carry across the diamond as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. At the plate, hitting grades have improved, now showing well above average through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a short / direct / level swing path. Barrel accuracy is a plus as he shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 73-76 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break and shows potential as being a quality pitch when he stays on top. Command / control are a plus as throws strikes with all his pitches and changes speeds well. He has a projectable frame and plus makeup as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
