Scouting Report

6/13/21

 

Physical: Athletic, even proportioned 5-foot-10, 170lb frame with feel for his body across all phases. 7.31 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: LHH - Slightly bent, narrow stance with the hands starting controlled with slow rhythm high at the head; utilized a leg-lift stride showing knee-knock while holding hip-coil over the backside on the forward move. Accurate, flat barrel path into the hitting zone generating a line drive approach through the middle of the field, gap to gap. Featured a lightning quick bat head that whipped on the inner half, a strong top hand produced an impressive 96 mph bat-exit velocity via Trackman Baseball. Possesses easy bat to ball skills (81% on plane efficiency per Blast Motion) and big rotational power (20 G’s of rotational acceleration). 

Defensively: The primary middle infielder flashed a hop in the “prep step.” Worked hard on beating the ball to the spot, got to the right of it early, operating aggressively out over the front side towards the target. Soft glove hand funneling inward at waist height; smooth actions and held downhill chest angles, handled plays on either side of his body with range. Chance to be an above-average defender with a quick, high ¾ release (82 mph arm). 


 

 

2/27/21

 

Physically: 5’10 170 lb SS/3B ran a 7.31 laser timed 60-yard dash. With just an average build he finds a way to create power and quickness in his game.

Offensively: The LHH has a smooth and early load. Displays advanced balance and body control throughout his swing. Overall swing mechanics have a mature look to them.

Defensively: Confident bounce and movement allow him to get his body and glove into the proper position to catch cleanly and start creating momentum towards his target. Really understands the infield positions.
