Brandon is an athletic and projectable 2024 utility prospect. At the hot corner, Brandon is on time with his prep step, he has a quick first step to the ball, and creates angles. He has good hands, good range, and turns double plays well. He needs to continue to play through the ball and make the routine play. At the plate, Brandon hunts the fastball early and shows pull side power. He loads his hands back, has quick hands, and creates backside drive with his lower half. He needs to continue to get the barrel inside the ball, get to balance with his lower half and improve his hard contact rate. Brandon will improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
