Roman is a coachable C prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the National World Series at Pirate City. Behind the plate, Roman shows active footwork and covers up well when blocking balls in the dirt. He sits in a square position and makes a quick exchange to throw. He has a quick release on his throws to 2B and keeps them consistent with good carry through the bag. Roman can improve as a C by presenting a lower target to the pitcher. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and maintains center balance. He is fluid getting into his load and drives through with his lower half. He takes a short swing with decent bat speed which leads to square contact and line drives. Roman can improve as a hitter by taking a shorter stride. With four more years to develop, Roman has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
