Steven is a projectable OF/RHP in the class of 2026 out of New Jersey. Defensively, he worked hard to try and work behind the baseball to get his momentum going towards his target on his throws. His throws from the outfield to his cut off were accurate. Offensively, he used a tall stance with loose hands that allows him to work the ball to all fields in his approach. On the mound, he loved to compete and worked to try and get ahead of hitters. He had a good tempo and threw only a fastball which ranged from 51-54mph. Steven could benefit from programs/drills such as long toss, arm path, bands, strength training, speed & agility drills.

Steven is a young, athletic, 2-way player who plays 1B and OF. In the INF, Steven has good athleticism, playable hands and feet, and he keeps the ball in front of his body. He is a good sized target, he moves well around the bag, and he throws with consistency from a quick arm action to his target. Abilities at 1B can get better with lighter feet and by fielding further out in front of his body. In the OF, Steven has athletic actions, he tracks well, and makes the routine plays. He plays through ground balls, and has some accuracy to his cut off man. Quickening footwork and improved range will help skills in the OF improve. Offensively, this LHH has a tall stance, a short stride, and he swings aggressively. He can spray the ball to all fields and he uses his lower body well. Hitting can improve with work on rhythm/timing and staying short to the ball.
