Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays proper footwork and moves well laterally. Hands are clean and presents well out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but will benefit by playing through with his body. Range will continue to increase as he increases foot quickness. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 65 mph. Fastball showed a range of 65-68 mph with cutting action. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
