He only worked out at 3B at the event but defensive abilities are now well above average in the IF. Hands are soft, clean, and sure displaying a plus glove action. Feet and hands work well together through the fielding and throwing process. At the plate, Bryan continues to shine with much improved abilities. Hitting abilities are now above average with near above average power through a balanced approach. Hands work inside the baseball, utilizing all fields as he shows a solid feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off his bat when centered. He is now a class A type player and will get a ton of looks from the collegiate coaches with the makings of a solid player at the next level.
