Lott continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now an outstanding runner at 6.88. Feet are quick / athletic as he moves well laterally, displaying range. He works to get behind balls up and plays through with momentum to his target. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 71-75 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is gained through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude and works hard to be the best player he can be.

Lott has an athletic build on his 6-0 170 pound frame. He ran 7.01 in the 60, and 4.45 down the line from the right side. He moved with quickness and fluidity in the OF, did a good job of moving to his left and right to reach a good solid fielding position. He lost his momentum through the ball however, and as a result wasn't able to generate consistent or strong throws. Is a good enough athlete to improve in this area. At the plate, he hit from a square setup and got his hands back well. His weight came forward early, not allowing a full rotation with his core to generate ideal bat speed. His move from there was a bit stiff, tended to sweep the barrel across the zone. On the mound, he topped at 76 with his fastball and showed some feel for a mid 60s breaking ball. Though his arm worked with some quickness out front, he tended to break his hands late causing a shorter and more rushed move on the back side. Tended to land on his heel, causing him to spin off some and finish upright. Overall, an athletic player with potential to be a solid prospect as an OF if he focused on baseball.
