Eliot is a RHP/3B in the class of 2023 out of Columbia, MD. At 3B, he works hard to create angles to the ball to give himself the best opportunity to catch the right hop. He makes the routine play but could work to improve he mobility and one handed glove work to catch the ball cleaner in the infield. As a hitter, he uses a crouchy stance with a square stride to work to a balance launching position. From there, he pushes to a firm front side throughout the swing with quick hands and a direct bat path. The balljumps off his bat from gap to gap. On the mound, he throws a 3 pitch mix of fastball with run (69mph), a curveball with 11/5 break and a change up that has occasional sink arm side. Eliot is a physical prospect with lots of potential if he continues to fine tune his game and athleticism.

Eliot is a lean RHP/3B who will graduate in 2023. At 3B, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he plays through with momentum to his target. Glove action is firm and presents out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he increases his foot quickness. At the plate, he shows a tall, open setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through on his release, staying inline towards the plate. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 65 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He throws a knuckle ball that is a pitch still in development. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, Eliot has potential with time and room to progress his game.
