7/16/21

Body: 6-3, 190-pounds. Long and lanky with some present strength, lower half generates power when hitting and pitching, room for more.
Delivery: Stays tall and firm to start, drop and drive towards home plate, velocity now and more to come, delivery will hold for starting pitching capability.
Arm Action: RH. Longer arm swing than infield showing, downhill action, followed through well.
FB: T89, 84-88 mph. Fastball has some life, worked to both sides of the plate, got hit in live game portion. 
CB: 69-73 mph. Sweeping breaking ball with significant speed differential from fastball, IVB -14.3 & -7.8, 32 bauer unit max, swing and miss in game for two strikeouts.  

7/07/21

Body: 6-3, 190-pounds. Long sturdy build with room to pack on more strength. Power while pitching and hitting comes from strong lower half.
Delivery: Sets up and throws from left side of the rubber, stands tall and is slow and controlled during his windup. Brings knee to chest on leg lift and then drops and drives with his backside very well
Arm Action: RH. Much longer arm action compared to infield throws. Straight over the top arm action. Lots of downhill action.
FB: T88, 87-88 mph. Above average Induced Vertical Break with an average of 21.1 inches. Has tendency to run in on hitter's hands and gets lots of swings and misses up in the zone T,  average rpm.
CB: 71-73 mph. Sharp, sweepy breaking ball with good depth that got up to 10.7 inch of vertical movement and 10.2 inches of horizontal movement.
CH: 79-81 mph. Some armside run and sink with quality velocity difference. Arm action mirrors the fastball. 

Hit: RHH. Starts with a wide base and some slight bend in both knees. He has some slight hand waggle and his leg kick is big and slow as he gathers onto his backside.  His hands start high but then get on a flat path once he drives towards the ball. Lands on a firm front side which helps create lift after point of contact.
Power: 87.00 max exit velocity.
Arm: RH. INF - 83.00 mph. Plus arm for 1B. Shortens up arm action in infield.
Defense: Footwork is good but range could increase. Very fundamentally sound.
Run: 7.42 runner in the 60. 

10/10/20

Body: 6-2, 175-pounds. Larger frame with longer limbs and present athleticism.
HitRHH. Slightly open and leans into his back side. Hands are loose and hanging over the plate. Slow gather while using a leg kick.  Smooth stroke that works on a flat-uphill path. At times gets a little long but has a good feel for the barrel. Definite pull-side approach. 
Power90 mph exit velocity. Uses his lower half well and has smooth/clean mechanics. Power will come with strength gains. 
Arm: RH. INF - 82 mph. Clean and quick arm action. Quick to release and had good life on both DPs and across the diamond. 
Defense: Clean defensive actions especially on DPs. Soft hands and clean exchanges. 
Run7.32 runner in the 60. 

DeliveryClean repeatable delivery. Uses a high knee lift and as it comes down he sinks into the rubber and falls down the mound. Delays upper body well to create good separation. Violent yet firm at landing. 
Arm Action: RH. Throws out of the H 3/4 slot. Clean arm spiral. Plus arm speed for level. Arm speed and slots are the same on all pitch types. Plus extension on FB/CH. 
FB: T83, 82-83 mph. Decent spin at around 2100 rpm. Gets good extension on the FB which gives it some deceptive life. 
CB70-72 mph. Moves a little more like a slider. Showed ability to throw it for strikes.
CH76-77 mph. Had some decent downward armside run. Same armspeed as fastball.
