Hit 40 45 Has a sense for the zone and spits on close FBs, though it's yet to translate to high walk rates. Less contact vs. off-speed but has time to make adjustment. Heavy, pull-oriented pass through the zone that doesn't cover outer-third as well. Has some natural barrel-feel that should prevent strikeout numbers from being too high.

Field 40 50 Developing defender, blocks well but receiving/actions need work; sits high and can get noisy pre-pitch; occasionally stabs at borderline pitches and loses strikes. Can get to avg but will take some time.

Throw 55 60 Plus raw arm-strength w/ extremely strong lines and easy carry through target. Developing footwork and transfer play it down in games, though projects as a usable plus w/ quicker release. Arm will help him stick at catcher.
