Cody is an athletic and talented 2021 OF prospect that runs the bases well. In the OF, Cody is on time with his prep step, he reads the ball off the bat, and has efficient routes to the ball. He has good foot speed and works behind fly balls well. He needs to continue to present a low/early glove and stay down on ground balls. At the plate, Cody starts in an athletic stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and is aggressive to the ball. He has a middle approach and creates backside rotation with his lower half. He needs to continue to keep his hands closer to his body at the start and keep a direct bat path to the ball in order to keep the barrel inside the ball. Cody made several adjustments throughout the week and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Cody continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a tremendous future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now an outstanding runner at 6.97. At the plate, hitting / power potential is now outstanding through an athletic setup. Hands are quick / explosive (88 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking balls down. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to target. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with carry but he will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.
