|HIGH SCHOOL:||East Ridge||GRAD:||2014|
Stabbing down angle arm action from low ¾ arm slot. FB ranges from 80-82 with some sink and sail. Average CV with 10-4 break. Has a tendency to get slurvy at times but pounds the zone with it (Bronson Arroyo). CH is average to above-average with good hand speed and fading action. Strike thrower who generates most of his outs on the ground.
Simple, slightly open stance with minimal load and high hands set-up. Drifts through swing and inside-outs a lot of pitches. Approach makes him a good two-strike hitter. Could be a two-way player in college when he learns to pull the ball with more authority.
Utility player who can handle all four infield spots but profiles best at second base although with size and quick mobility, his instincts make him a good first base candidate.
