Chestin is a strongly-built, athletic two-way player. As a pitcher, he exhibits a quick, clean arm from the left side that will lend itself to effective movement on his pitches. He features a mid 70's fastball with run, a 2-8 curveball and a deceptive changeup in the low 70's. He works with good tempo and pace with some deception in his delivery to keep hitters off balance.

Chestin is a lean, athletic 1B and has a promising future on the diamond. At 1B, he shows smooth / fluid actions. He displays proper footwork around the bag as he is a quality receiver. Glove action is soft / sure and presents well out front. He moves well laterally with range increasing as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared / athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Hitting grade will increase as he works to get his stride foot down sooner to work on time. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Chestin has potential with time and room to continue to progress his game.
