Zebby continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He reads balls well off the bat and works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will continue to improve as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate he shows a crouched / open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to improve as he works to utilize his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

Zebby is an athletic, 2-way player who plays OF and RHP. Defensively, Zebby moves well to the ball, he makes the routine plays, and works hard to keep it in front of his body. He has firm hands, plays through, and has a clean exchange with consistency to his cut-off man. Abilities in the OF can get better if Zebby can quicken footwork, sure up his glove, and add arm strength. On the mound Zebby has a FB that touches 69 MPH, he works to his balance point well, and has good direction toward home. He has a clean arm action, separates on-time, and competes in the zone with his pitches. Mound effectiveness can improve if Zebby can strengthen his arm, sharpen mechanics, and work on off-speed. Offensively, Zebby tracks the ball well, his swing is level, and he swings in some rhythm. He has a short/square stride to the ball, has average bat speed, and makes square contact at times. More lower ½, staying short to the ball, and added barrel accuracy can help hitting get better.
