Physical Description: Long, lanky frame. On the skinny side, but has minimal remaining projection.

Hit: Starts square. Short, slap like swing. Very direct to the ball. Bat drags through the zone. Does a good job fouling off tough pitches, but still has swing and miss in his game.

Power: No over the fence power potential. Not a part of his game.

Arm: Average arm strength.

Field: Fluid actions, soft hands. Comfortable charging and covers ground with long limbs. Potential Solid-average defender. Can stick at shortstop.

Run: Below-average speed. Strong baserunning instin.

Career Notes: Father was a long-time coach at the program and his brother was an undergraduate volunteer assistant coach.

Summation: Profiles as defense first minor league infield depth. Can play both shortstop and third base to an above-average level. Won’t add much at the plate, but defensive ability should allow him to stick around.
