Gavin is an OF prospect who continues to showcase his skills on the field. In the OF, Gavin shows efficient footwork and makes the routine plays. Getting into a lower fielding position can help Gavin improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He gets into his load and drives the ball to his pull side. Gavin can improve as a hitter by working a smoother rhythm into his load. With two more years to develop, Gavin has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Gavin is a lean OF who will graduate in 2021. In the OF, he displays fluid / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate he shows a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and shows a feel for the barrel through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At the event, he was 1 for 2 with a 2B. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 2 years to further develop, Gavin has abilities with a lot of room to continue to progress his game.
