Emerson continues to show improvements in his game. At 3B, he displays clean/smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up, presenting hands as he makes the plays. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick (85 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

Emerson is a tall 3B prospect who will graduate in 2020. In the field, Emerson makes the routine play and has a smooth exchange to throw. He throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate and on-line across the diamond. Emerson can improve defensively by getting into a lower fielding position. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a square stride. He is smooth getting into his load and leads well with his lower half. He takes a level swing with okay bat speed which leads to square contact to all fields. Emerson can improve as a hitter by not wrapping his bat in his load. Overall, Emerson has the potential to further develop his skills on the field with continued hard work.
