At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an open setup. Hands are quick and work to and through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently through the swing. At 3B, he displays smooth, clean actions. Feet are aggressive as he active but needs to attack balls more and play through with his body. Glove is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.
