Scouting Report

2/3/19 - 60: 6.53, OF Velo: 83, Exit Velo: 86

5-10, 155-pound OF continues to show off his immense raw tools and the progress he has made, improving in every measurable from last fall.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength, super projectable, has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Offensively, hits w/ a slightly open, slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into a toe tap and proper load.  Whippy bat speed, gets it through the zone with authority.  Swing really works, barrel stays in the zone for a long time, occasional loft on his finish.  LD’s to all fields at his best.  Projectable pull power, may have just enough power to get him in trouble, will be at his best hitting line drives gap to gap and letting his plus run tool (6.53 and 6.81, 6.66 last fall) play and leg out extra bases.  As a defender, shows premium speed to pair with projectable carry through target arm strength in an easy arm stroke.

2/3/19 - Max FB: 81, FB (79-81), CB (67), CH (73-75)

5-10, 160-pound lefty shows intriguing present FB velocity, but likely profiles best as a position player thanks to advanced athleticism.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength, super projectable, has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Pitches from a full wind-up into ¾ release from the third base side of the rubber.  Throws slightly across his body, some deception and hiding the baseball.  Quick arm.  FB shows short arm-side run.  CB flashes with tight medium downer, occasional short slurve.  CH w/ short fade.  Thrower on this day, athleticism to be a consistent strike thrower, repeat his delivery.
