Chiseled build, strong frame, major league body and good quickness. Arm strength and speed are above-average. Solid-average defender who can play all three outfield positions, though fits best in right field going forward. Good bat speed. Tremendous fastball hitter. Line drive hitter with some present power, but more in the future. Has been able to take advantage of mistake pitches, but there are still holes in his swing. Does not project to hit for much average, but with the walks he should be able to put up some good on-base numbers. Sometimes is too conservative at the plate, often taking too many pitches. Results in a lot of pitches seen, but is the reason he strikes out a lot. Slight draw back setting up, but hands do not move anywhere but forward after the load, and loading point is in a correct slot. Struggled in his first full season at Frederick, will need to rebound in 2014 to restore doubt.
