6/27/18

6-foot,165-pound left-handed hitting catcher. Ran a 7.28 sixty at the event. Threw 72 mph from behind the dish, pop time of 2.0. The feet can improve as can his leverage to second base during the transfer. The receiving is solid, good feel for securing the pitch and framing. The flexibility and ability to block are very well taught. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 82 mph, as physical strength gains are needed. The set up is wide in base, picks up and puts down the front foot as the ball approaches. The path is flat and long to contact. Showed the ability to make solid contact in game play.

Catching Velocity- 72 mph
Pop Time- 2.0

5-foot-10, 150-pound, thin, long athletic frame, neck is long and shoulders are sloped, has plenty of room for future development. A left-handed hitter, the stance is slightly open and balanced, the hands are loose and the bat is flat on the back shoulder. The hands and weight get back into a good hitting position, has small leg kick and stride gains a little ground. The swing is flat through the zone, the barrel stays in the zone a long time, sprays the ball to all fields. The tee exit velocity was 81 mph and ran a 4.72, in game performance was good collected a single. Defensively, has a good setup behind the plate, balance and flexible. The feet have quickness to them, the transfer is quick. Pop times were 2.10-2.13, throws were close or on the bag. The arm was clocked at 70 mph from the chute. The frontside could get closed down more, opens early and arm lags at times. A left-handed hitter who sprays it to all fields, needs strength.

5-foot-10, 150-pound thin, long, athletic frame with plenty of room to fill out. A left-handed hitting catcher, at the plate stance is balanced and even at shoulder height. The lower half is under control, gains good ground with stride and hands have some movement for his load. The swing path is level, flat through the zone and he finishes with one hand. The tee exit velocity was 78 mph, drove one line drive after another in the middle of the field. Behind the plate, setup is low, balanced and relaxed. The hands are strong, sticks the pitch well, transfer is quick, but he needs to close up slightly trying to be too quick, easy fix. Clocked at 64 mph from the crouch, arm works from a natural ¾ slot. On release, he needs to stay through it longer and not cut it off at end. Good looking kid, much more to come with this one.

On defense, he worked out in the infield and behind the dish. In the field, he showed soft hands and feet worked well. The arm across the diamond was 66 mph, has much more in there. Behind the dish, setup is wide, even and balanced. The feet gain ground towards second on throws, needs to close up a bit more. The hands are soft, can receive gets behind the ball well. Times to second were 2.15. Projects out to be a left-handed hitting catcher. The frame is athletic, strength is a must. Definite follow for me, like this one a ton.

2018 FUTURE GAMES
5-foot-11, 165- pound left-handed hitting catcher. Did a solid job behind the plate in the games, receives well and communicates well with the pitchers. Threw two runners out trying to steal, showing the ability to stay in his feet and be accurate. Had two hits in the final game. Threw 74 mph down to second base, pop time range of 2.06-2.19. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 88 mph. The setup is wide in base, pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches. The swing is long and fluid, and he uses a 1-handed finish after contact. The frame needs additional strength to it, as it will help his offensive game. Ran a 7.33 sixty on the laser at the event as well.
