7/22/20

5-foot-9, 155-pound, average athletic frame, rounded shoulders, with room for added weight gains. A right-handed hitting catcher, who can also play third base. At the plate, the feet are even, wider than shoulder width, hands are loose at the shoulders with some tilt to bat head. The swing is flat through the zone, more of a line drive approach from the middle of the field to pull side. Showed solid contact in batting practice and in game play, approach is advanced for his age. The exit velocity was clocked at 86 mph, baseball coms off the bat well. Defensively, setup is athletic behind the plate, moves very well. The hands are strong on the catch, doesn't lose many pitches, gets around and underneath them. The arm action is clean, working from a natural slot. The arm was clocked at 68 mph and had a pop time of 2.05-2.15. At third base, fielding out from, with little wasted movement during transfer. The feet and hands work well together. The arm was clocked at 69 mph. Good looking prospect in the class of 2024.

11/03/19

5-foot-7, 135-pound, smaller, athletic frame. Squared off shoulders with room for added weight. One of the better players at this event, look for him to jump at some point, needs some strength, has an understanding of what he is doing. A right-handed hitting catcher, who worked out at 3rd base as well. Behind the plate, has serious feel and looks like he enjoys being back there. The setup is athletic, low to the ground, starts slightly side saddled. The hands are strong and soft on the catch, sticks the pitch. The feet are active in the transfer, gaining ground, staying inline to target. The arm action is loose and whippy, working out of a 3/4 slot, clocked at 64 mph, with a pop time of 2.14-2.27. Pitchers looked to be comfortable throwing to him. Third base showed clean actions, fielding out front, low to the ground, gaining ground, moving well to glove side. The arm was clocked at 70 mph, gets body moving quickly.  At the plate, wider spread out stance, feet are even, hands are loose and relaxed starting at shoulder height, bat starting in more of a flat position.  The swing is level to up, barrel stays in the zone, driving the baseball to the middle of the field. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 68 mph and ran a 8.26. Will need to add strength and quickness, mechanically and feel for the game is there, will be a good one.

Arm Velocity: 70 mph
