01/27/2019 - College PREP - Dayton, OH Max is a solid, athletic, 2-way player who plays SS and RHP. Defensively, Max has good pre-pitch actions, he covers ground well, and gives very good effort. He makes plays, his exchange is clean, and he throws with consistency from a short arm action to his target. If Max can quicken footwork, field lower, and play more through the ball, defensive skills will improve. On the mound, Max is aggressive in the zone, he keeps his eyes on target, and he separates his hands on time. He works quickly, lands with good direction toward home, and he mixes his pitches well. Offensively, Max has a tall/square set-up, good balance, and solid feel for the barrel. He makes square/level contact, has a direct swing path, and he uses some lower body. Hitting can spike with more hand load, added bat speed, and more lower 1/2.
