“Right now I would compare my game to a miniature version of Whit Merrifield”
Q: What major league player (past or present) would you best compare your skill set to?
A: There are a lot of players that I love comparing my game to. However, right now I would compare my game to a miniature version of Whit Merrifield. Whit and I are so versatile, that we can play any position on the field and be super confident while playing that particular position. Also, I love how Whit is constantly always getting on base and being a tough out.
Q: Only the 31st player in UAB history to be drafted is pretty special. Did you always believe you were going to play professional baseball?

Q: You were sixth in the nation collegiality in stolen bases, did you always have a green light to run?
