Scouting Report

8/02/20

 

Physical: Lean / athletic 6-foot, 165-pound frame with some projectability / high level athleticism in the actions. 

Pitching: RHP - Deep side rocker step from the middle-left side of the rubber, moderate pace throughout the delivery with a medium leg lift at the top of the stack, sits into a strong backside before driving out towards the plate, landed in-line / directional with high posture in the body, high ¾ release with quickness in the arm. FB ranged from 82-84 T86 mph with an upwards of 2446 spin per Trackman Baseball… the FB lived above the belt generating swing and miss with two strikes and paired well with a sharp 68-70 mph CB showing 11/5 shape out of the same window and 2106 rpms of spin. Could change eye levels at will and dropped in a quality third pitch for strikes as well; a low spin 71-72 mph CH with slight arm-side fade on occasion. 


 

 

6/15/20

 

Physical: Lean, athletic 6-foot, 160-pound frame with room to fill out as he matures and plenty of quickness in the actions. 7.38 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH. Tall open stance with a high back elbow and hands at the shoulder. Utilized a controlled leg-hang coupled with a slight backwards move in the load to initiate his swing. Demonstrated feel for the barrel entering the zone in a slightly uphill path through contact point. Fluid stroke that played well in-game generating multiple hits at the PA State Games. Strong top hand to the baseball while hitting into a stiff front side allowing for an 89 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The outfielder displayed advanced footwork with a feel for multiple routes to the baseball. Can cover either gap drop stepping well to both sides and can go and get it in the air for his pitchers. The arm strength stood out with accuracy towards the target through a high ¾ slot with fluidity and length on the front side. OF - 89 mph

Pitching: RHP - Quality pace on the mound, deliberate arm swing with athleticism in the back and fluidity in the front through a high ¾ slot. FB worked into the zone at 84-86 mph and mixed in a sharp 67-68 mph CB showing 11/5 shape with swing and miss. Also featured feel for a 75-76 mph CH displaying occasional arm-side fade.

 

2/23/20

 

The primary right-handed pitcher demonstrated a long and lean 6-foot, 160-pound frame with athleticism and explosiveness out of a slow-tempoed, repeatable setup utilizing a lightning quick, high ¾ arm-slot. Sat 81-84 mph with life up in the zone and occasional small arm-side run. Mixed in a 65-68 mph curveball with feel for spin showing 11/5 shape. Countered with a decent 74-76 mph changeup thrown with advanced sell and featuring occasional natural cut. Commanded two and sometimes three pitches in the zone which should create tough at-bats against. The Freshman right-handed pitcher should be an interesting follow in the 2023 class with advanced fluidity and athleticism in the arm-swing allowing for a very high ceiling.
