Stevie is an athletic 2025 2-way prospect that was eager to learn and has a high baseball IQ. At SS, Stevie is on time with his prep step, he has good actions to the ball, and fields the ball in front of his body. He plays through his backhand, he has a clean exchange, and gets rid of the ball quick. At the plate, Stevie has a good set up and has good pitch recognition. He gets his front foot down on time, he attacks the inside part of the ball, and creates backside drive with his lower half. On the bump, Stevie gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a loose arm action. He works north to south in his delivery and throws his fastball for strikes. Stevie will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
