Future Game Report:

A left-handed hitter, smaller, wiry strong athletic frame. The swing is short quick, gap to gap juice, uses the entire frame to hit. Defensively is very smooth, soft glove, good feet, with an above average arm. Can play multiple spots in infield, good go to outfield as well. An above average runner. Showed extremely well in game play. Game 1, 1-2 3B, 1 run, Game 2, 1-2, Game 3, 3-3, 3 1B, 1 run. 

7/19/22

5-foot-8, 155-pound, thin, wiry strong, athletic frame. A left-handed hitter, can really swing the bat, life and whip to his hands. The stance is balanced, starts in a wider, lower crouch position. The hands are relaxed and loose, the swing is level to up, staying in the middle of the field. Showed to have enough juice to be the outfielders, the exit velocity was clocked at 90 mph. A good runner, ran a 7.06 sixty-yard dash, with above average instincts on the bases. Defensively, can defend at a very high level, hands are soft on the catch and twitchy on the transfer. The arm action is short and quick, clocked at 84 mph across the diamond. During game play had hard, solid contact in his at bats. Worked off the mound, simple repeatable delivery from a high 3/4 slot. The fastball was up to 86 mph, and mixed in harder slurve at 71 mph. Dominated in his performance punching multiple hitters out. High follow for me.

Exit Velocity: 90 mph

Arm Velocity: 84 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.06
