Scouting Report

MD Unsigned Senior Games 8.7.18

Solid, compact body type and 5-foot-10, 185 pound frame. Hits from a balanced, open stance. Rock back load, quick hands, and quick bat speed. Strong lower half involvement and an exit velo up to 88 mph on the day. Short, slightly uphill swing path. Gap-to-gap typer hitter with some power. Quiet body behind the plate receiving and sticks it well. Very quick footwork and a quick, clean exchange. Gains ground on throws to second base. Shorter arm action throwing from a high three-quarters slot at 74 mph. Put all five throws on the nag with pop times ranging 1.96 - 2.08. Ran a 7.43 60-yard dash.

8/17/17 5-foot-10, 185-pound right-handed hitter starts from a wide, square stance and initiates his swing with a leg-hang stride. Displayed a solid fee for the barrel with present power to the pull side.  Registered a bat exit velocity of 89 mph and ran a 7.45 60-yard dash.  Showcased advanced 78 mph arm strength out of the crouch with pop times of 2.07-2.15.  Flashed quick feet and a short transition with a tendency to allow his lower half to leak to the 3rd base line. Presents a soft wall when blocking and impressed with his receiving skills during the bullpen phase of his workout.
