Peyton is an athletic OF /LHP who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. He utilizes his feet in taking proper routes / angles in working to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. He shows good game awareness and does a nice job of backing up bases. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he shows a tall, open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drivep approach. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 67-68 mph. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Stock on the mound will continue to develop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. With 3 years to further develop, Petyon has potential with time and room to progress his game.
