Patrick is a thin, 2nd baseman with average size. Defensively, Patrick has soft / sure hands, he attacks the ball aggressively, and he fields out front in a low position. He has soft hands, good lateral movements, and he throws with accuracy to his target. Defense can improve if Patrick can smooth out his footwork, and add arm strength. Offensively, Patrick has a square set-up, a level swing, and a still head. He makes square contact, he works gap to gap, and he gets his lower 1/2 through. A better load and added bat speed can spike hitting numbers.
