Bryson is a broad, (5'11, 228) 1B/RHP. Defensively at 1B, he shows active footwork as he moves well laterally getting square on gb's. He has a clean/quick exchange and makes strong/accurate throws to his target. On the hill, this RHP keeps his eyes on target and delivers from a 3/4 arm slot with a loose arm action. He has a quiet delivery as he separates on time and extends through. At the plate, Bryson is an impressive power hitter. He swings with plus bat speed and explodes his lower 1/2 through as he drives pitches with hard contact. He will be one to watch given how good his bat currently is.
