Elliot is a young 2025 grad that plays 3B/RHP. At 3B, Elliot works hard getting good jumps at 3B especially to the backhand side. As he fields the ball he works to square it up making a clean exchange and creating momentum towards his target. His arm action is short and loose as he gets rid of the ball delivering the throw online with accuracy. Hitting, Elliott starts in a tall and open stance striding square to launch the swing. He uses his lower half well to create fast bat speed resulting in hard, line drive contact. On the mound, Elliot brings a 2-pitch mix with a FB/CH combo. Mechanically he shows good balance throughout the delivery allowing him to deliver his FB with good arm side sink. Elliott will continue to grow and develop, we look forward to seeing his progress.

Elliot is an athletic 3B/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel through a line drive approach, flashing gap-to-gap pop. At 3B, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 64-66 mph with tailing action. He maintains arm speed on his changeup and shows a feel for pitch with sinking action. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. With 5 years to further develop, Elliot has a lot of potential with time and room to continue to progress his game.
