Coleman is an athletic and talented 2026 3B prospect that was eager to learn. At the hot corner, Coleman is on time with his pre step, he presents a low/early glove, and has a good first step to the ball. He has good hands and footwork when fielding but needs to continue to work from the ground up. At the plate, Coleman starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and gets his front foot down on time. He creates backside drive with his lower half and shows the ability to pull the ball. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and keep his head down at contact. Coleman will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

He presents his glove, gains ground, and throws with momentum from a long arm action to his target. Behind the plate, Coleman sits in well, he tracks properly, and lets the ball travel. He tries hard to keep it in front when blocking and has direction with accuracy when throwing to 2nd base. At the plate, Coleman has a tall/square set-up, good balance, and he swings aggressively.
