Hit 30 45 Pull-heavy approach; gets bathead to ball when doesn't open early; shoulder dip and early-open make him vulnerable to spin and good velo. Showed ability to work counts but only to get strikes to swing at. Projects to improve selectivity but will whiff and not walk with hard contact when he does hit.
