At the plate, Leo is good at consistently putting the ball in play and at hitting in various situations. He also has some power, with exit velocities ranging as high as the mid-90s.
Defensively, he can play a variety of positions, making him an excellent utility player, and has above-average speed. He has experience at first base, shortstop, third base and right field, but can play any of the outfield positions and also pitch. He played at six different positions during a single game in 2021. The velocity on his throws across the diamond ranges from the low-80s to mid-80s (mph). As a pitcher, he features a four-seam fastball, a curve, slider and change-up.
Leo is an positive, energetic, supportive teammate who keeps the dugout loose. He is the type that will always put in the extra work necessary to keep improving. When he’s not in-season, he continually works out and trains.
