Scouting Report

8/10/21

 

Physical: Twitchy, lean 5-foot-10, 175lb frame with advanced athleticism. 6.95 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Wide attack as the knees started slightly bent with pre-swing rhythm in the hands. Utilized a directional lift and replace stride to initiate a flat, accurate bat-head into the hitting zone. Rotated on-time to the inner half pitch, coiling a bit at footstrike and unleashed in advantage counts with good intent. Able to shorten up and make consistent flush contact to all fields, giving him versatility from pitch to pitch. Posted a T95 mph bat-exit velocity with some loft in the approach on this date (60% fly ball rate). Seasoned skillset ready to handle a top of the order role. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop displayed active, up-tempo footwork off the bat, gaining ground to leveraged spots with the glove. Bent at the waist and set up properly, funneling with give to the chest before a quick right, left and release from H ¾ slot (carry, 91 mph arm, plus tool). Made plays on the run with accuracy throwing across his body and spun the double play well. 

Pitching: RHP - The righty closed GAME 2 with a quick-paced delivery that worked into a firm, stiff front-side at footstrike. The arm exploded into slot with some fluid action towards the mitt as he finished. The FB ranged from 83-85 mph with good spin traits, turning to a commanded 68-70 mph CB with two-plane feel (hard sweep).


 

 

8/03/21

 

Physical: Twitchy, athletic 5-foot-10, 175lb frame with “gamer” attributes. 6.88 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Crouched, even stance with higher hands showing slight rhythm to start. Utilized a stretched lift and replace stride to initiate the barrel through a flat, direct path into the hitting zone. Set contact points out in front with leverage available in the approach, driving the ball with a mix of high intent and bat to ball skills to the pull-side of the field. Recorded a T95 mph bat-exit velocity with easy efficiency during BP, notching a 343 foot batted ball distance for occasional home run juice, consistent doubles power when getting extended. Carried a hot bat all summer at multiple PBR events. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop demonstrated well above-average actions, gliding across the diamond with pace and a loud 90 mph throwing arm with carry at head height. Maintained posture and rhythm with an adjustable glove hand presented on-time.


 

 

1/20/18

 

5-foot-7, 130-pound right-handed hitter starts from an open stance and utilizes a short leg-hang stride to initiate his swing. Exhibits some lower half glide but head and hands stay behind the baseball well enough to create regular hard contact. Recorded a bat exit velocity of 75 mph and ran a 7.44 60-yard dash. Displayed active feet and a short arm swing with accurate 74 mph arm strength across the diamond. Right-hander sat 72-74 with a deceiving long arm motion out of a high 3/4 arm slot on the mound. Curveball is a solid second offering sitting 58-60 with 11/5 rotation. Also showed a changeup with some cut at 57-59.
