Physical Description
Big-bodied, strong frame with no projection; solid-average athlete
Mechanical Notes
Funky NWU delivery from 3/4 slot with deception, effort at finish. Comes set facing shortstop, stays extremely closed to hide ball, stiff arm stroke w hook, plus arm speed, fringy extension. Strong lower half creates power, loses release timing.
