Right handed hitter with an athletic stance and large leg lift trigger. Moves into contact with lower half aggressively. Loose hand path to baseball and displayed good strength at contact. Ball jumped off the barrel well when squared and looked to drive the ball to each gap. Also pitched showing a small rock step to medium leg lift delivery.
