Scouting Report

6/30/21

 

Physical: Very strong, projectable 6-foot-2, 205lb frame with feel available in his game. 7.34 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, even stance with some crouch to the stance as the hands showed rhythm; utilized a short leg lift stride to initiate the bat head through a slightly uphill, quick path into the hitting zone. Hands worked fluidly to the baseball with no restrictions, creating leverage at the front of the plate with some bat speed present. Notched a T95 mph bat-exit velocity, staying on a line for the most part (40% LD rate via Trackman) for easy doubles power to the LCF gap during his round. Strong middle of the order intangibles that followed good sequencing in the movements. 

Defensively: The primary backstop displayed a soft glove hand at the catch, using a narrow/controlled traditional crouch position. Pop times ranged from 2.10-2.14 seconds at gamespeed; let the ball absorb to the glove without cheating, got over the front side on time and released in rhythm from a shorter H ¾ slot (71 mph arm, accurate). Flashed solid blocking skills while reading down angles out of the hand.


 

 

2/17/21

 

Physical: Large, well proportioned 6-foot, 205-pound frame with ability to impact the game in all phases. 7.32 runner showing off the athleticism at that size. 

Offensively: RHH - The righty started from a balanced, comfortable stance with a slight bend in the knees as the hands showing calculated rhythm on the shoulder; utilized a simple leg lift stride in order to initiate a short, accurate barrel through a slightly uphill attack in the hitting zone, line drive approach (36% line drive rate) with obvious feel offensively, stayed behind the baseball at will aiding a strong 92 mph bat-exit velocity pepper the LCF gap with authority. Mature hitter who could go backside on occasion as well if pitched there; hit into a stiff front side while recording a 27.3% hard hit rate per Trackman Baseball. A 75% on-plane efficiency points towards solid bat to ball skills at the plate and a 301 foot batted ball distance emphasizes current doubles power at the moment. 

Defensively: The primary backstop flashed quality receiving skills from traditional and one knee setups; sets a low target with confidence in getting the low strike. Pop times ranged from 2.10-2.13 staying behind the plate well in the catch and throw phase in order to give accurate in-game looks. Very fluid transfer mechanism keeping the throwing arm live while getting the ball in and out of the hand. Accurate 70 mph arm strength with ability to keep it on the bag, efficient blocking technique working a large, athletic body around pitches in the dirt with down chest angles.
