Evan showed very well out in Omaha with advanced abilities at 1B and Pitching. In the field Evan has a + first step to the ball with good back hand range. He fields the ball with a soft and sure glove and makes clean exchanges with the ability to throw from multiple arm slots. His throws are accurate and strong with carry around the infield. At the plate Evan has an athletic set up with loose hands. He creates great rhythm and fires his lower half through to create a firm front side. His swing is compact with fast bat speed making consistent and hard contact especially to the pull side. On the bump Evan showed a FB/CB mix with a + feel for the CB. The FB has some cut to it at times and the CB showed 11-5 shape with a sharp action. He works from the stretch gathering over the rubber and separates fluid and on time. His acceleration down the mound creates good rotation into a controlled landing. Evan makes other players around him better with his natural abilities and his work effort to get better. Even as a young prospect Evan shows a lot of potential.
