Chris is a young, athletic OF / LHP with a thin frame. Defensively, Chris has good pre-pitch actions, quick / active feet, and he works behind the ball well. He has a quick / clean exchange and throws with a long / loose arm with carry to his target. Catching the ball at its highest point and finishing off his throws will only help improve OF skills. On the mound, Chris has a loose arm action, smooth separation, and level shoulders. He has good direction toward home, good glove side lead, and he is around the plate with his pitches. Keeping his eyes more on target and better use of his lower 1/2 can help mound effectiveness improve. Offensively, Chris has a square / athletic set-up, good balance, and fast bat speed. He has a short / level swing, he makes hard contact, and he gets his lower 1/2 through. More live hands and better rhythm can help solid hitting get better.
