Scouting Report

08.05.18
Average 5-foot-11, 160 pound frame.  Still maturing and adding strength. True utility player that has the ability to play in the middle of the field defensively and behind the plate.   Moved all over during the Future Games and did not flinch at any situation. On the infield, trusts his hands. Feet are active. Setup is typically positioning the ball of the inside, right hip, funneling to the midsection for the exchange.  Short arm action and high-¾ release. Premium carry at 89 mph across the diamond with accuracy. Good feel for balance and able to adjust when caught in tricky positions, catching and transitioning each time. Behind the plate, good bend in the hips and setup.  Exchanges across the belt, allowing for a longer arm swing to an over-the-top release. Pop times ranged 1.94 - 2.03 with accuracy and carry. Positional velocity of 82 mph out of the crouch. In game play, the setup has some movement that can create tension in the hands.  As he is stable in pre-pitch he is able to receive just about any arm thrown at him. One game pop recorded at 1.94 on a fastball that took him out of his crouch, and standing as he exchanged. Offensively, worked from both sides in the workout, but only right handed in game action.  Tall and balanced from each side. Tends to stride and fall out over the plate from the left side, working for extension and showing a pull tendency. From the right side, much more balanced and direct. Small stride and direct path leads to average bat speed and barrel awareness. Gap-to-gap approach peppering line drives in BP.  Can be passive in game situations, but found the barrel in several positive counts. Ran a 7.22 sixty on the laser timer.

01.28.18
Average, athletic build at 5 feel 11, 160 pounds. Athleticism shows with an ability to play multiple spots at a high level.  Primary infielder with advanced actions, making plays routine.  Easy carry in the arm with aggressive feet after the transfer.  Works to a high-3/4 slot recording positional velocity of 85 across the diamond.  Behind the plate, fluid footwork with quick clean exchanges and a quick release.  Repeats the action with ease and a high transfer to a strong arm swing and high-3/4 slot.  Carry is easy from the crouch with the positional velocity of 79.  Switch hitter with an exit velocity of 83mph from the right side and 79mph from the left. Good approach with a fluid swing from both sides. Works from an open stance with a short stride showing above average bat speed. Good feel for his barrel getting extension through the ball. Long at times from the left side.  Much more direct on his natural right side.   Run times of 4.08 in the 30-yard dash, 4.20 in the 5-10-5 agility test, and recorded a 9-4 in the standing broad jump.

01.21.18
Athletic 5-foot-11, 160 pounds.  Broad shoulders and strength in the lower half.  Plenty of room to continue to add strength in the coming years.  Quickness is present, running a 2.92 20 yard dash/4.5 5-10-5 agility shuttle.  Also produced a standing broad jump of 8-6. Switch Hitter with good rhythm and looseness in swing from both sides of the plate. Natural right hand hitter who produced a higher exit velo from the left side at 83mph. Showed the ability to drive the ball from both sides with slightly better feel for his swing from the right side. From the left side, works from an athletic base with a vertical bat.  Some rhythm pre-pitch.  Short stride, working to be direct and stay in the middle of the field.  Average barrel awareness.  Exact same setup and movements on the right side, but the barrel awareness increases.  Good rhythm and actions in the IF with good quick hands. Plays through the ball nicely with fluid footwork. Easy ability to catch and secure the ball.  Accurate from a high-3/4 slot with premium carry at 85 mph across the diamond.  Also a catcher, receives with athleticism.  An easy target, balanced and allowing the hand to work.  Quickness remains while in his stance.  

05.21.17
Slight frame at 5-foot-11, 150 pounds, but still a young build.  Solid across the board and fundamental in many aspects.  Listed as switch, but hit right only in BP, working with a balanced stance, wide base, and smooth load to a short stride.  Better than average bat quickness through the zone produced an exit velocity of 79 mph.  Level bat path has a pull tendency.  Simple and direct, a lot of barrel was produced in two rounds.  Hands work direct.  At short, works easy, with good hands and accurate throws with average carry at 81 mph across the infield.  High-¾ slot, showed an ability to adjust his feet and arm swing based on the play.  Exchanged low at times, but no bobbles or accuracy issues. Ran a 7.46 sixty.  Interesting follow as the body continues to mature.
