Braxton is a 2018 OF with a projectable frame (6'2", 170lbs). In the OF, Braxton has good footwork and catches the ball with firm hands. He gets good momentum to throw with his crow hop as he comes over the top to throw. Braxton can improve defensively by taking deeper routes to the ball and by incorporating a long toss program to build up his arm strength. At the plate, Braxton sets up in a tall stance and strides to the ball on time. He shows good power as he swings on plane through the zone with good bat speed. He makes hard contact which produces solid line drives. Braxton can improve as a hitter by getting his stride foot down sooner to improve his timing. With two more years to develop, Braxton has the tools and potential to develop into a player who can contribute at the next level.
