In the OF, he shows active prep footwork and takes good routes to track down fly-balls. He secures the ball, gathers well and gains ground with an aggressive crow-hop. At SS, Elias works around the GB and into a square fielding position. He makes the backhand smoothly and fires accurate throws across the diamond. With the bat, this righty has a balanced setup with rhythm in his hands. He connects and creates extension through his finish, driving the ball on a line.
