vs Valley Christian - San Jose signee; A player who is best appreciated over multiple viewings, as he does have tools that stand out, but it's the usability of the hit/power tools that show up over those multiple viewings. At 6-foot-2 195-pounds he's certainly physically attractive and with 4.37 speed down the line he obviously runs pretty darn well. The arm plays at SS though the fielding skills are still a bit of a work in progress. It's at the plate though where he makes the most noise, with a heavy barrel (strong hands) and approach that keeps him in the middle of the field and a swing plane and barrel control that allows him to drive the ball with carry to CF and right-centerfield. There is real power in his future.


BAWS 2019 - Strong medium frame with width in shoulders and full build showing quick lower half (7.11 60yd). Wide balanced stance with high even hands and flared elbows; swing was compact with direct hands as barrel had small upwards arc. Worked the pull side of the field with some lift into the gaps and the strength in the frame to muscle pitches that got off the barrel (89 EV). Showed off his baserunning instincts in game taking multiple bases and flashed that bat strength with some deep flyouts; can work to stay on outer half pitches longer. Defensively showed short, controlled feet with the ability to move in space staying low through the baseball; shorter arm path pushes through release (74 MPH).


vs Foothill in NCS D1 semi-final - Uncommitted; struck out in first at bat while chasing high fastball but saw SAME pitch in same spot in subsequent at-bat and homered to right-centerfield, which is where his power stroke continues to play. Occasionally will get long but when short and taking away middle/away he's got a stroke and strength to do damage. As he learns what he hits best that power should continue to emerge. In two viewings in playoffs he's driven in four runs with a double and this homer.


vs Monte Vista in NCS D1 playoff - Uncommitted; DH in this game, went 1-for-3 (2B, 2 RBI, reached via EG), highly competitive at-bats vs a top senior RHP in the area (Josh White - Cal), jumped on mistake slider for the 2-RBI double that plated the only two runs in a 2-1 win, hard hit ball that one-hopped under the SS, was on balance and barrel is heavy and live, stays inside and has barrel lag similar to that of Rockies' Mark Reynolds, breaking ball mistakes to him get hit hard, ability to drive ball opposite way with power should continue to emerge.


vs Foothill - Uncommitted; 6-foot-0, 190-pounds, athletic build with more room to fill out physically. McAdoo crowds the plate to take away the outside corner from the pitcher, looks for a ball left out over the plate. Also has a good eye and forces the pitcher to come into the zone. He was able to execute a very impressive bunt on a squeeze play that scored two runs, pitcher tried to pitch out but he reached way out of the zone to get the job done, a skill that won't go unnoticed by college coaches. Shows good discipline and high baseball IQ.


Uncommitted at time of this report; had 3 hits off of highly ranked 2019 RHP Josh White (Cal) and showed a simple short to the ball swing.  He is a super athletic and strong kid, who runs well and showed good actions on defense during pre-game. Definitely a guy to keep eyes on as the year progresses and through the summer.


at St. Francis - Uncommitted; 6-foot-0, 190-pounds with strength throughout and football-skill position type lower body, has raw talent that stood out, there is some hand strength and hand speed that are good places to start, along with having an strong build that is still developing. There is LIFE in his hands and as he develops better overall mechanics and timing, power to the middle of the field will emerge. Defensively he displayed competent middle infielder actions and tools during pre-game. Playing behind a senior SS he may not get a lot of time there before his senior year gets here and getting time at 3rd or 2nd base also doesn't seem likely as D1 committed seniors play those spots too, so he will have to be ready to show what he's got in the summer season. It is simplythe observations of his raw hitting potential that has him mentioned here. The video isn't particularly pretty either, but sometimes you have to go with the gut feel on a player.
