6/08/22

3B/RHP Gavin Short (Sunnyslope, 2024)


6-foot-1 185 pounds, large build with raw strength. Room for added athleticism. Have seen continuous improvement to athleticism and strength. (Running) 7.62 runner in the 60. (Offense) RH. Max EV 98. Max Dist. 319. Simple and soft set up at the plate. Loose grip on the bat, elbows are held in tight together, stands slightly taller in stance. Uses a small leg kick stride that is direct to pitcher. Has some bat/hands speed with a flat path that gets through the zone. Struggled with contact points on this day, was catching the ball very deep which caused him to be slightly disconnected. Gap-to-gap power potential bat with good swing mechanics and strength. Being slightly late at times effected the contact points on this day. High percentage of line drive contact. (Defense) (IF) RH. IF velo 79. Longer arm action from a HTQ slot. Build and athleticism plays best at corners. Simple actions with the glove, direct and efficient, room for added fluidity with hands. Ball has 4 seam carry across diamond.


Game action: 1-4 1B, 2 K

Gavin Short (Sunnyslope, 2024)


Good frame with strength throughout. Strength in lower half and hands. Powerful actions. 7.14 runner in the 60. Projects well on the corners. (Hitting) Max EV 98.8 mph. Max Dist. 363 feet. One of the top statistical leaders offensively at this event. Above average strength and bat speed for age. Bat gets through the zone well. Simple set up in the box, shoulder width base with a slight bend in the knees. Hands held at the chest with a vertical bat. Gap-to-gap power is developing. Creates some natural loft with the swing, has the ability to drive balls deep to center/pull side. (IF) 77 mph IF velo. Profiles well as a 3B with size and arm strength. Glove work and footwork is still developing, seen improvements within the last year. Understands body positioning on various ground balls, keeping the feet moving will increase glove skills and ability to read hops. Has the ability to throw from different slots, arm plays from left side.


Game Results: 1-3 1B, K

Gavin Short, Sunnyslope (AZ), 2024

Positional Profile: 3B/RHP Projects as a gap-to-gap/power hitting corner infielder. Bat is best tool, defensively has room for more athleticism.
Body: 6-foot-0, 185-pounds. Above average size and strength.
Hit: RHH. Tall in stance, hands held lower, slightly pushed back.  Small up and down stride. Produces bat speed, seems to understand different contact points. Swing produces high % of line drives, gets steep at times. Good inside path to the ball creating back spin.
Power: 96.9 max exit velocity, averaged 88.24 mph. 332’ max distance. Consistently finds the barrel. Line drive contact at a high rate. Gets steep at times pounding balls into the ground.
Arm: INF - 80 mph.  Has some arm strength across the diamond with 4 seam carry. Longer arm swing, slower release. Can throw from lower slots.
Defense: Not the cleanest with footwork/glove, stays a little too tall at times when fielding. Range is limited. Can throw from different body positions.
Run: 7.64 runner in the 60. Long strides. Would benefit by staying tighter with arm swing.
