Elijah continues to make impressive strides on the field to improve his game. He impressed with his improvements defensively, showing the ability to make tough plays and long throws at third base. His ready position is athletic and he has quick feet on his first step. His glove is on time and his hands are sure to field, exchanging quickly to throw. Attacking the ball will allow him to pick his hop and get the best bounce. At the plate, he shows gap to gap ability with centered balance and fluid actions. He has good barrel control and makes consistent, square contact for base hits to all fields. Elijah is a young, up and coming player with lots of potential.
