COACH GREG GEARY SAYS: "He's always on balance and doesn't try to lift balls out of the park. He was committed to staying within himself, and that's a gap-to-gap hitter who focuses on line drives. He does a great job blocking balls and keeping borderline pitches in the strike zone for the umpire, and he gets rid of the ball quickly so not many run on him. He calls the games himself and has a great baseball IQ."
