Xzayvier is an athletic, hardworking C in the 2025 class. Scouts enjoyed working with him and described Xzayvier as “a pleasure to have in camp and worked every second to improve his game”. Behind the plate, he has soft hands, quiet eyes and presents a solid target. He replaces his feet well on his throws and his exchanges are quick and clean. He gets the ball in the air quickly (2.15 pop) and is accurate to his target. Working to throw the top of the baseball will shorten his take away and create more carry. His feet are above average on his blocks and working to generate more of an angle to allow him to keep the ball in front more. At the plate, He stays inside the baseball well and looks to drive the ball to the backside gap. Collected 4 hits in camp to the backside and getting his front foot down sooner will allow him to use the middle of the field more. Overall, he is a player with high character and has the tools (6.82 runner) to play at the next level in 3 years

Xzayvier is a young, 2-way player, with a thin/athletic frame. Behind the plate, Xzayvier has quick feet, soft/presentable hands, and he sits in low and athletically. He holds a low target, gains ground, and sticks the ball well. Xzayvier blocks and receives well, shows a quick clean exchange, and throws with a good release and a short arm action with accuracy to second base. A softer chest when blocking and added throwing accuracy will only help Xzayvier improve behind the plate. At shortstop, Xzayvier shows efficient foot work, solid range to the glove side, and a loose arm action. Xzayvier moves well to the ball, makes plays, and throws with a quick release across the diamond. Xzayvier can improve in the infield with an earlier glove presentation, quicker feet, and not stabbing at the baseball. Offensively, Xzayvier has a crouched stance, a short square stride, and good balance. He has explosive bat speed, a direct barrel through the zone, and he makes hard consistent contact gap to gap. Solid hitting can get even better by letting the ball travel deeper, and not getting around the baseball.
