Cliff showed solid baseball skills during his time in Omaha. He has good instincts overall and runs the bases well. In the OF, Cliff has quick/fluid feet, he reads the ball of the bat well, and fields athletically. He works behind fly balls properly, has a clean exchange, and gains momentum toward his target; throwing with accuracy. At the plate, Cliff improved hitting and power grades to 50's. He has good balance, he tracks the ball well, and has fast bat speed. He has a short/direct barrel to the ball, makes hard contact, and he uses his lower body. Cliff is a nice prospect at the next level.

Cliff is a lean, athletic OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.19. In the OF, he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. He gets behind balls and plays through well with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Cliff has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities as he continues to progress his game.
