Getting on a long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his development on the mound. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power is best showed to the pull side. At the event he was 2 for 8 with a 2B. At 1B, he displays smooth / fluid actions. He works to square ball up and makes the routine plays. He displays proper footwork around the bag and he is a quality receiver. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
