6-foot-4, 195-pound, long, lean athletic frame, professional frame to him. A right-handed pitcher, with an electric arm, working from set position, quick lift, high temp to delivery. The arm is super loose and fast from a 3/4 slot. The fastball reached 88 mph, located to both sides of the plate, baseball explodes to the plate, with late action to arm side.  The slider has a chance to be a legit out pitch, up to 77 mph, depth and very good spin. Showed ability to handle throwing the changeup, arm action is so clean, should be pretty quick to really develop it. One of the better arms in the state.

6-foot-4, 185-pound, long and lengthy athlete, with loads of room for added weight gains. Showed well, swung the bat with authority, driving the baseball to the pull side, serious power potential down the road. Creates natural lift, loft with a good amount of leverage in there. The stance is balanced, a wider setup, slightly open, hands are relaxed set just lower than shoulder height. Smooth lower half, with backside drive, gets pull happy at times, baseball explodes off the bat. The exit velocity was clocked at 97 mph and ran a 7.47 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, moves very well around the bag at 1st base. The glove is soft, clean picks on dirt balls. The arm shows very good strength across the diamond, clocked at 86 mph.  The arm action is loose and whippy, looking forward to seeing him off the bump.

Exit Velocity: 97 mph

Arm Velocity: 86 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.47

6-foot-4, 185-pound, longer , lean, wiry strong athletic frame. The neck is long, back is wide, showing plenty of room for added weight gains. A right-handed pitcher, who worked out as a position player as well. Off the mound he projects out to throw with velocity at some point. The delivery, more hybrid, hands start lower, smooth clean leg lift. The stride is inline, slightly shorter, small forward lean, front side shows minimal pull to it, could track longer. The arm action is longer and clean on the backside, whippy and works with easy effort. The fastball was clocked at 83 mph, showing good arm side sink. Look for the fastball to jump. Mixed in a harder breaking ball at 73 mph, more slider type pitch, chance to be a put away pitch. Showed for a true changeup, had turn me over action to it. At the plate, taller stance, even feet, hands are loose and relaxed at shoulder height. Pre-pitch movement, swing is fluid through the zone, barrel is in the zone, working the baseball form field to field with lift to it. Shows very good bat speed, exit velocity of 94 mph. Long strider ran a 7.68 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, threw 83 mph across the diamond, footwork was advanced around the bag. Projects for me more off the mound, potential to be a power arm, shows power at the plate. 

Exit Velocity: 94 mph

Arm Velocity: 83 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.68

6-foot-4, 185-pound, longer, lean athletic frame, squared off shoulders, with loads of room for added weight gains. A right-handed hitting two-way player, at the plate, feet are even, hands are super loose with pre-pitch movement to them. The lower half is under control, using a smooth higher leg kick, gains ground with stride foot. The swing is level to up, with an all fields approach, keeps hands inside the baseball for a good amount of time. Recorded a 91 mph exit velocity and ran a 7.88 sixty-yard dash, is very athletic with long strides, time should drop at some point. At 1st base, clean feet around the bag, hands are soft on all picks, fielding out front and low to the ground. The arm action is clean, with whip like action, from a 3/4 slot. Off the mound, easy athletic left, with coil to the raise, is loaded on the backside. The arm action is longer and loose, from a 3/4 slot, creating natural arm side run to his 82 mph fastball. Ran the breaking ball in there at 71 mph, showing a 1/7 break to it. Along with a true turn me over changeup at 70-71 mph. Look for the velocity to jump at some point. Solid two-way player, time will tell which way he will go.

Exit Velocity: 91 mph

Arm Velocity: 82 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.88

6-foot-3, 185-pound, longer, lean athletic frame, sloped shoulders, wider back, lots of room for added weight and strength gains. A right-handed pitcher, working from the set position. A smooth delivery, stays tall and over the back side, lands slightly across body, spins off at release, could stay through it a tick longer. The arm action is super loose, clean, whippy arm action, working from a natural 3/4 slot, arm works well. The fastball reached 82 mph, with good arm side run to it. The breaking ball has depth, with correct spin, clocked at 71 mph, chance to be an out pitch at some point. Showed feel for the changeup at 71-75 mph, fade action to it. Look for the velocity to jump, good looking arm in the class of 2022, need to see him.

2/17/20

6-foot-3, 185-pound, long, lean athletic frame with tons of room for added weight. A two-way player showed well on both sides of the field. At the plate, hits from the right side, even feet, loose relaxed hands at the shoulders, lower half under control, using a controlled toe tap. The swing is fluid, life in the hands, level to up path, baseball jumps off the bat. The approach is more middle to pull side. Recorded a tee exit velocity of 90 mph and ran a 7.96. The feet and hands work well together at first base, clean drop steps, solid target. The hands are soft on the catch, picks. The arm was clocked at 77 mph across the diamond, super loose and whippy action. Off the mound, set position, athletic lift, lands just so slightly across body, creating deception. The arm action is super clean, working from a natural slot, minimal pull with front side. The fastball touched  79 mph, with a ton more in there, arm side run. Pounded the zone with 3 secondary pitches, cutter at 65-66 mph, late break, with a slurvy breaking ball at 65-67 mph. Showed fee for a changeup at 68-73 mph. Love the projection off the mound.

Tee Exit Velocity: 90 mph

Arm Velocity: 77 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.96
