Cody is a very talented young player with good upside. Defensively he displayed excellent body control, quickness, and soft hands. Also Cody has a quick release, plays through well and possesses very good arm strength with carry on the ball. On the mound he showed good presence, pounds the zone, and gets great extension on his finish. Cody needs to polish his delivery (more repeatable), load better out of stretch and work on secondary pitches. At the plate he is athletic, has an aggressive swing, barrels the ball displaying good pop. Cody needs to be more consistent and develop an approach/plan at the plate.
