Christopher continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate, hitting abilities have improved through a crouched setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At 1B, he continues to shine as he displays smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 69-73 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

Christopher is a tall and young 1B that graduates in 2023. At 1B, Christopher works hard to create good angles and get into a good fielding position. Getting his hands a little lower and more out in front of his body will allow him to be a more consistent fielder. As he works to throw, he gets rid of the ball with accuracy to the target. At the plate, Christopher sets up in a square and athletic stance with high hands taking a short stride keeping his weight centered. He gets the barrel on plane with the pitch showing + barrel control hitting the ball to all fields. Christopher showed good IQ for the game and will continue to grow and improve.
