Physical Description: Average frame with minimal projection. Looks his listed 5-foot-11, 190 pounds.

Hit: Left-handed hitter, starts vertical with his hands high. Simple mechanics, leg lift and then short, compact swing. Direct to the ball. Advanced knowledge of the strike zone, solid contact skills. All fields approach, confident attacking fastballs. Potential average hit tool.

Power: Not a major part of his game. Below-average raw power, doesn’t project well as he matures. Potential to hit a handful of home runs a year and 20+ doubles if given enough at bats in his peak.

Arm: Average arm strength. Plenty for second base and passable on the left side of the infield in short stints.

Field: Makes the routine plays. On the stiff side and has a tendency to field the ball vertically. Average range, more comfortable going to the glove side than to his back hand. Tendency to let the ball get deep rather than attacking an early hop. Potential average defender.

Run: Below-average speed, not a major part of his game, but does have above-average base running instincts.

Summation: Projects as a potential bench utility player at the major league level. Floor of a solid organizational player. Could play passable defense at all infield positions and most likely the corner outfield if necessary. Bat is on the light side, but projects to hit for enough average with on-base skills to make up for lack of over the fence power. Strong instincts and work ethic, gets the most out of his ability and has made steady improvement since he signed.
