Boyd continues to show well on the diamond. In the OF, he has active prep and works lightly on the balls of his feet. He covers ground with speed (6.93) and works through the ball well. With the bat, this leadoff type stands in with an athletic setup and solid base. He maintains quiet/simple actions with patience. Hands are quick as he fires the barrel through a level path and drives the ball to the gaps. He is quick out of the box and gets down the 1B line. This 2019 OF prospect has a very bright future ahead of him in the game.
