College PREP - Plainview (Lubbock), TX Maximus is a solid, 2-way player with good skills at both positions. At 1B, Maximus has quick/fluid footwork, soft hands, and fields in a low/athletic position. He has good bag awareness, picks out the right hops, and his exchange is quick and clean, with a strong/accurate arm to his target. Playing a little more through will only help solid defense improve. On the mound, this LHP has good balance, on-time hand separation, and a quick arm action. He works well to his balance point, he has good direction toward the plate, and throws strikes. Maximus has a FB that touches 85 MPH, and his off-speed show well. Mound effectiveness can improve with a looser arm action and working on a downhill plane. Offensively, Maximus is a strong hitter with good balance, a tall stance, and solid bat angle. He loads easy, stays inside the ball, and makes hard contact gap to gap. Solid hitting can get even better with more lower body and extension through contact.
