He shows very quick feet and quick actions in the field, with plus body control. Tovar's arm strength is a click short of ideal but he gets rid of the ball and makes accurate throws. His best tool is his bat. Tovar has plus, plus bat quickness with a very balanced approach. He can wait a long time on the ball and still get the bat head through and drive high velocity fastballs. His hands really work well and he has a very good and well timed weight shift to his front side. He has a line drive swing plane right now that can get the ball into the gaps but watch out if he learns how to lift the ball. Tovar is a very good all around talent with lots of upside who is a gamer. He is also a good student who has signed with UC Irvine.
