Edward is an athletic middle infielder with young features and room to continue to add strength throughout his body. Defensively, Edward shows quality actions at SS with a live, active lower half, proper footwork, and an understanding of how to work thru the baseball. Hands work well with softness, moves well in both directions, and shows quality body control when having the throw on the move. Has a bit of a lower slot and shorter arm action which limits arm strength a bit but has some wrist flick in his throws that give the ball a little extra carry at times. Not going to be a plus arm but shows the ability to work thru the ball well and get the ball out of his glove and in the air quickly to allow arm to play. Defensive tools to stay in the middle of the infield. Offensively, Edward just needs to keep getting stronger. Shows a quality swing path thru the zone with extension and leverage in path. Very simple and gets hands loaded and into a good launch position properly, gets foot down on time to give himself a chance to see the ball. Average bat speed and shows some feel to put the bat on the ball. Some minor mechanical adjustments needed, tends to leak out over front side, just needs to keep getting stronger, especially in lower half. An average runner for his ae (7.03 60), Edward may still be able to add a step or two and be a sub 7 60 yard guy. Shows some polish to his game tho still room to develop. See him as a guy for any smaller D1 colleges to definitely keep an eye on.
