This strong RHP has a plus skill-set with 3 quality pitches. FB jumps out of his hand and cracks the mitt at 85 mph. Good glove side lead and drive toward the dish help in command on FB. Delivery can be a little deceptive working to his advantage and keeping hitters off balance. He's aggressive and gets out. At 1B, he shows good prep and smooth hands, fielding the ball athletically. At the plate, this righty gets into a strong loaded position where he's ready to explode. Plus hand-eye coordination and quick bat speed result in hard line-drives. A stocky 2-way player who's strong arm will get his team quite a few "W's" this upcoming season.
