Royalton is a tall, lean OF/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he works to get behind balls and plays with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he shows as a switch hitter with similar abilities from both sides. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through on his release, staying inline towards the plate. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 73 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He slows arm speed on changeup, tipping off pitch to hitters. He can improve as a pitcher by long tossing to build up his arm strength. With 3 years to further develop, Royalton has potential with time and room to improve his game.

Royalton is an athletic 2023 SS prospect that moves well to the ball and worked hard all week. At SS, Royalton is on time with his prep step, he anticipates the ball off the bat, and presents a low/early glove. He has a clean exchange and creates momentum with his lower half when he throws. He also did a nice job of turning double plays. At the plate, Royalton starts in a squared position, creates backside rotation with his lower half, and attacks the fastball. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, keep his head down at contact, and attack the inside part of the ball. Royalton was eager to learn and we hope to see his progress in the future.
