Levi is a gamer who leaves it all on the field and showed well at the Best of the West. At 3B, he shows active prep as he works into a low/athletic fielding position, tracking GB's into a soft mitt. Transfer from glove to throwing hand it smooth as he works through and gains ground toward his target. Offensively, this lefty stands in tall and remains patient, waiting for a pitch he likes. Swing it level to contact as he barrels the ball up and hits hard line-drives (collected a double and a walk in 5 AB's). On the mound, this RHP remains composed and works the ball in and out. He is quick to the plate and works to pound the zone and get ahead early in the count. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape while changeup shows some arm-side run. Only a 2024 grad - Hazes has a solid skillset with upside on the diamond.
