Personal

Jeff is a good contact hitter with good speed that enables him to take extra bases and makes him a base-stealing threat.   His exit velocity has been clocked as high as the low-100s (mph).

Defensively, he can play all three outfield positions, and he was a pitcher in high school, so he can step in as a reliever, should a club need him there.   He has a strong throwing arm, with velocity averaging in the mid-90s (mph) on throws from the outfield.  His speed also enables him to cover a lot of ground and get to balls some others would not.

Jeff is an energetic player and is very supportive of teammates.  He brings a competitive edge to a club and is always putting in the extra work necessary to continually improve.

In addition, he has youth coaching experience and would be interested in helping a team’s coaching staff.
