Julian is a broad two-way prospect who is always looking to improve. He can deliver the barrel to the ball consistently and make hard contact for base hits. He loads his hands to a power position and strides on time. Bat path is direct to the ball with a strong lower half to generate bat speed. At first, he has efficient footwork around the bag and centers the ball to field. He has a clean exchange to throw and makes accurate throws around the diamond. On the bump, he shows a FB/CB mix, working aggressively in the zone and pitching to contact. The fastball has sink at 60mph and the curve has 10-4 break. More use of his lower half will increase velocity. Julian is a talented player with a lot to like in his game.
