Brendon showed again as a two way player with a very tall/strong frame at 6'6/210 lbs. Offensively, from the left side he looked the part and generated good bat speed to hit with pop when centered. He squared up balls on the inner half and has a chance to hit at the next level. In the OF, he covered ground and was light on his feet to get to his spots. He was sure with the glove and threw on-line to his targets. On the hill, the southpaw threw his FB with run and sink, and showed a 2/8 CB from 67-69. He was mechanically sound, with loose arm action and front side extension to finish pitches. He had good presence with his frame and with a third pitch has a chance to make his way into a starting rotation. In all - Brendon has a rare build for a ball player with height and strength with an ability to do it all on the diamond.

At the plate, he kept his head quiet and had balance throughout the swing to hit in the middle of the field. He showed some gap pop and has a chance to hit at the next level. All in all - with his frame and present ability, Brendon has a very high ceiling in this game.
