Todd is a wiry OF prospect who will graduate in 2020. Offensively, Todd has a square, tall stance and takes a short stride with a good load. He stays balanced throughout his swing and has a direct bath path. Todd does a nice job connecting the barrel to the baseball and spraying to all fields. In the outfield, Todd plays hard and makes all the routine plays. He is developing his footwork to become more fluid and receive the ball softer. Todd throws with a long arm action from a high 3/4 slot. Overall, Todd will continue to see gains on the baseball field as he adds strength with maturity.

Todd is a hardworking, coachable player who has a great attitude. At 1B, he is a solid receiver, displaying clean hands and proper footwork around the bag. Hands/feet work well together through the fielding process as he can go get the ball and pick it out of the dirt. Continuing to develop his foot speed will help to increase his lateral range in the INF. At the plate, he shows a squared/balanced setup. Hands are quick and work through a compact swing path. He makes consistent contact and hits line drives. Power numbers will increase as he works to swing against a more firm front side which will allow him to utilize his full lower half. With 5 years to further develop, Todd has abilities with time and room to improve.
