He tries to block, his exchange is clean, and he has some accuracy to 2nd base. At 1B, Zavier has firm hands, fluid footwork, and his glove is consistent. Offensively, Zavier has a square set-up, a short stride, and good balance. He attacks the ball aggressively, swings in good rhythm, and he uses his lower 1/2.

Zavier is an athletic 2017 graduate who plays C/1B. Behind the plate he has a wide/square setup, firm hands and he deadens the ball/keeps his head down when blocking the ball. He needs to get lower in his setup, quicken feet and be more efficient on his release.
As an infielder he displayed sure hands, efficient footwork, he fields out front and he has playable range. He needs to become more aware around the bag, take better angles to the ball and work on picks. At the plate Zavier showed an athletic setup, hands back load, square stride and a short swing path. He needs to be careful he does not lunge at the ball (let it travel into the proper hitting zones), use his lower half more and his timing is late (start sooner). Zavier is a good kid but he is very quiet, it will help his game to be more assertive/aggressive on the field. He has the ability to be successful in the future if he focuses and works on his fundamentals.
