Scouting Report

5/25/20

 

Positional Profile: SS/RHP
Body6-0  180
Run: 7.26
Hit: RHH  Great Barrel Round.  Simple set up with minimal movements.  Good foundation.  Stacked at launch, bat head has slight tilt.  Path is direct and he has ability to find barrel.  Middle of the field approach.  Hands demonstrated ability to stay inside the FB in.  Wants to hurry to front side.  Rear side acceleration is great and maintains balance. Has demonstrated ability to hit off speed.
Power:  Gap to Gap with potential as strength improves
Arm: OF Velo 86  Inf Velo 82   Quick catch to release.  Demonstrated longer arm action as OF
Defense: Really good actions os OF/Inf and shows versatility.  Good feeds on double play balls.  Good lateral movement, but can improve.  Momentum to and through throw.   Carson as rising/developing 2022.  Top Follow

 

1/26/20

 

Positional Profile: SS/RHP
Body:  6’0”  180
Run: 4.38 Home to 1st
Hit: RHH  Solid foundation that stays stacked through load. Stride foot is consistent and weight distribution is 50/50 at launch.  Hands start and shoulder level, Some extension of arm angles during load. Middle of the field approach. Gap to Gap approach I have seen Carson numerous times and would caution against a performance evaluation in this event video. Timing seemed off on this day hitting. Would consider Carson a college prospect! Exit Velo 88
Power:  I see power potential within his swing as strength develops
Arm: OF Velo 76  High ¾ Arm Action with some tail.  Quick catch to release. More in there!
Defense: Athletic movements. Attacking to the ball and breaks feet down for position for throw.   INF: Very good positioning prior to fielding. Good Momentum through throw. Quick catch/release     

 

12/15/19

 

Positional Profile: SS/RHP

Body: 6’0” 180

Run: 7.24

Hit: RHH  Solid Base. Stacked stance with simple up/down stride foot.  50/50 weight distribution at launch. Hands stay high, arm angles in good position.  Path to ball is direct and level. Creates great “to it/through it” zone. Slight tilt to front side.  Has good extension and one handed follow through. Gap to Gap and demonstrated getting hands inside FB in.  Exit Velo 87 Room for growth. Follow now, will gain interest 

Power: With more rear side acceleration and demonstrated barrel control, Carson likely to progress with power.

Arm: Inf Velo: 77  Arm works well from all angles and has good accuracy  Good Carry

Defense: Demonstrated very good actions.  Good footwork to setup, good momentum through the throw...gather to quick catch/release   As a 2022, would love to see continued development at all infield positions. Great potential
