1/18/20

Athletic frame with long levers. Like the direction and power step in the infield. He showed a 78 arm velo across and I like the chance of the arm getting a lot stronger. There’s some pull side pop and barrel ability with feel in the box. Showed some advanced movements including a scissor action with the lower half. 87 top exit velocity.

7/14/19

Lanky and athletic frame at 5 foot 11-150 pounds with room for growth. Short arm action with throws across the infield with accuracy and carry. Average hands with fluid footwork and clean exchange and plays through the ball on groundballs. Balanced setup at the plate with smooth load and leg kick to create rhythm in the swing. Line drive hitter with level bat path and average bat speed with exit velocity of 78 mph. As a RHP throws from the ¾ arm slot with short arm action average arm speed with fastball at 75-76, curveball 60-61 and slows arm down. Regular effort and in line with delivery to home plate.
