Macai is a solid, 2-way player who worked out on the mound and at 1B during his last workout. On the mound, Macai stands over the rubber well balanced, he has a clean arm circle, and gets good extension on his pitches. He spots his FB well, lands with good direction toward home, and shows a solid upside on the mound. At 1B, Macai has fluid/active feet, agile movements, and soft/presentable hands. He attacks aggressively, moves well around the bag, and he throws with carry and accuracy from a loose arm action to his target. Offensively, Macai is a strong/aggressive hitter with an athletic set-up, good balance, and plus pop in his bat. He works the ball gap to gap and uses his lower body well.
