Justin is a physical 6'3" prospect with 2-way potential as a LHP and 1B. On the mound, he uses a low 80s tailing fastball to get ahead of hitters - preferring to throw it down and away to RHH. He mixes in a rolling curve to keep hitters honest, but his most effective offering is a change-up that has late tumble. The arm speed and action are very effective. As a hitter Justin has a quick, slashing LH stroke that generates bat speed and some pop. He is also very comfortable around the bag at 1B, provides a very good target and has sure hands. There is still plenty of upside in this 2016 grad.
