Elijah is a young Shortstop and RHP. At SS, he is sure handed and works behind the baseball and hustles after everything. He has loose arm action and is very accurate across the diamond. On the mound, Elijah again is very accurate, throws strikes consistently, and has a strong balance point. His repetitive delivery allows him to use his body well and stays in line with the plate. He can continue to improve as a pitcher if he can continue to develop another pitch. Offensively, he sets up tall and centers his balance well. His head stays down through contact and he will continue to improve on his rhythm, timing, and load.
