Tommy continues to show as a top prospect with his baseball abilities at the SOUTHWEST 17U TOUNAMENT. In the OF, defensive abilities are excellent as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. He utilizes his excellent foot quickness in covering a lot of ground, displaying range. Throws are accurate with online carry (94 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He has strength (89 mph exit velocity) in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with gap to gap pop. Lower half works well through an aggressive hip turn. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

Tommy is a freakish athlete with an extremely high ceiling on the field. He does a little bit of everything but it's his foot speed/arm strength combo that make him a bonafide DI centerfielder prospect. He covers a massive amount of real estate and the ball sails out of his hand with carry. In addition, he produced his best broad jump to date at 9'5" and his grip strength of 142 pounds on his left hand and 159 pounds on his right hand show that there is also some special power lurking beneath the surface. At the plate, he does a consistent job of using the whole field and barrels up baseballs on the regular. We are expecting big things out of Tommy this year.
