6-foot-1, 200 pound, strong, physical advanced athletic frame. The back is wide, shoulders are broad, strength throughout. An absolute monster at the plate, old school mentality of gripping and ripping. At the plate, is balanced throughout, even feet, slightly wider than shoulder width. The hands are relaxed at the shoulders, swing path is level through the zone, barrel has major bat speed and pop, had a tee exit velocity of 94 mph. The approach is more pull, has the ability of going the other way. In game swings were advanced, collecting a triple and putting together good at bats. Defensively, can play all 4 corner positions, better suited at first long term. Threw 78 mph from third to first, moves well to glove side, feet and hands work well together. From the outfield threw 81 mph, down hill on target, with easy carry to them. Routes and angles are correct. Average runner, good jumps and instincts on the bases.  One of my favorite guys, tough,  durable athletic athlete, brings a ton of value to a program. 

Tee Exit Velocity: 94 mph
Arm Velocity: 81 mph
Home to 1st: 4.46

6-foot-1, 190-pound right-handed hitting infielder and outfielder. Turned in a legit workout as he can really play and shows good athleticsm. Ran a 7.15 sixty on the laser at the event. The approach third base is appropriate, feet move well and he throws enough. Threw 79 mph across the diamond. At first base, the feet and glove are solid, threw 78 mph from first to third. The approach in the outfield is aggressive and athletic, throwing 76 mph. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 91 mph. The setup is wide in base, minimal movement on the bottom half. The hands are extremely quick and he gets the bat head to the ball. Plus life in his hands. 

Tee Exit Velocity - 91 mph
INF- Velocity- 79 mph
OF Velocity 76 mph

6-foot-1, 185-pound, solid athletic frame, shoulders are sloped wrists, forearms have good strength to them. A right-handed hitter, top tool is his ability to swing the bat, plays the game at a high rate of speed, with feel for everything he is doing. At the plate, is balanced, stays behind the baseball on contact. Shows to have gap power, drives it to both gaps on a line. The swing is flat through the zone, gets through it with hard solid contact. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 92 mph, barrel has life out front. Runs above average, with a 6.78. Defensively, threw 77 mph from third base and 79 from first across the diamond. Moves well at both places, gets off the blocks quickly, moving extremely well to glove side starting the double at third. The hands are soft, arm works out of a ¾ slot, with plenty of carry. Look for him to be able to play all corners on the field, a throwback ball player, one of the better ones around. High follow.

Tee Exit Velocity- 92 mph
Arm Velocity- 79 mph
Sixty-Yard Dash- 6.78

6-foot-1,189-pound utility player. Athletic and quick twitch player who can bounce around to different spots on the field. Showed serious versatility for me. Ran a 4.49 down the line on his dig to first base. The glove is solid in the outfield as the approach is aggressive.. Threw 83 mph with carry from right field to the plate. The glove at third base is soft, smoothening out the prep steps will aid the fielding process. Threw 79 mph across the diamond with accuracy. The feel around first base is solid, threw 81 across the third base during the workout. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 83 mph. The hands are extremely quick. The setup is wide in base, very minimal movement out of the bottom half. The hands are free and quick. The path needs to be flattened through contact. Very intriguing player for me as he is a very good athlete and the skill set is plus.

Tee Exit Velocity- 83 mph
INF Velocity - 81 mph
OF Velocity - 83 mph

6-foot-1, 180-pound, longer, strong athletic frame. The shoulders are rounded, with room to fill out. The top tool is the ability to swing the bat and swing it consistently. At the plate hits from the right side, balanced setup, feet are even, wider than shoulder width, hands are set lower, relaxed. For timing uses a no stride approach, very small pick up and put down. The swing path is down to level to up, finishes with two hands, advanced ability to get the barrel to the baseball. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph and ran a 4.65 from home to first. The in game swings were very good, hard contact with multiple extra base hits. Defensively, shows to have soft hands, easy flow and smooth actions on all plays. The arm was clocked at 77 mph, plenty of carry and strength across the daimon. The footwork around the back at first was accurate, showed the ability to pick the baseball. Potential to really hit down the road, valuable player, can play multiple positions, could help in a corner outfield spot as well.

Home-First: 4.65
Exit Velocity: 85 MPH
Arm Velocity: 77 MPH
