Connor is a physically imposing prospect at 6'5”, 200lbs who has a prototypical baseball frame. He shows off a big time arm both on the mound at in the field, resulting in a big fastball and the ability to make plays other first basemen can't. He is aware around the bag and is able to move his feet to make shorter throws and pick balls in the dirt. He plays through his backhand in the hole and makes accurate feeds to the bag. At the dish, he absolutely crushes the ball with strong hands and very good bat whip through the zone. He delivers the barrel to the ball consistently on a direct path to spray lasers from gap to gap. On the hill, this tall right hander uses his impressive size to jump at the hitters and reduce the reaction time to catch up to his 77mph fastball. He has smooth mechanics and repeats his delivery well to get to a consistent release point on each of his pitches. Syncing his arm and body will lead to more command and velocity moving forward. Connor is a very exciting prospect with huge potential on the field.
