Lavten is a young C/2B that plays bigger than his stature. Behind the plate Lavten shows an athletic setup and presents his hands well. His secondary is athletic and low creating momentum to his target with accurate throws. His blocking footwork is on time and he centers the ball keeping his chin tucked. Lavten shows comfortable hands at the plate with a short and square stride. He separates his hips and hands well working to get the barrel on plane and showing line drive power. Working on his arm strength can help Lavtens game. Lavten already shows great actions on the ball field and will continue to develop as he grows into his body.
