Maddux showed well behind the plate and at 1B during his last workout in Greensboro. Behind the dish, Maddux holds a low target, footwork is efficient, and he sits in low and squarely. He tracks to his glove, his exchange is quick and clean, and he throws with a quick/consistent arm to 2nd base. At 1B, Maddux has soft hands and good footwork around the bag. He presents well, picks it clean out of the dirt, and throws with carry and accuracy to his target. Quicker feet and added range will only help abilities at 1B improve. At the plate, Maddux has a square/athletic stance, good balance, and a fluid/rhythmic swing. He has a short/direct barrel, good bat speed, and he works the ball gap to gap. An earlier front foot and more lower 1/2 will help spike hitting numbers.
