New England Procase

6-foot-4, 220-pound, strong, wide physical frame. A right-handed hitter, balanced, gains ground with lower half, produces big time power to pull side. The swing is level to up, gets a tick long when trying to do too much, shows plus bat speed. Potential to really hit with power at the college level. Shows a big arm from the outfield, tick above average at the pro level, clocked at 92 mph, downhill with plus carry. An average runner, shows an athletic stride, ran a 7.32 sixty-yard. Interesting follow in college. 

Tee Exit Velocity: 92 mph

Arm Velocity: 92 mph

Sixty-Yard:  7.32

6-foot-3, 215-pound right-handed hitting outfielder and pitcher. Positionally, ran a 7.48 sixty on the laser at the event. The approach in the outfield is under control and athletic. Threw 88 mph with carry and accuracy from the outfield to the plate. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 87 mph. The setup is even in base, uses a knee to knee approach on the bottom half. Throws his hands to the ball and leans on it. Chance to hit for power down the line. The frame can add strength and weight as he matures. On the mound, the delivery has small crossfire to the feet and the arm is short on the back half. The ball comes out clean and he has a feel for his body. The tracking is good and he throws strikes. The fastball touched 84 mph, minimal arm side action to the pitch. The spin pitch is slurvy, sat at 69 mph. The pitch needs more fastball hand speed to it. The changeup is a developing pitch at 72-73 mph. 

Tee Exit Velocity- 87 mph
OF Velocity - 88 mph

6-foot-3, 215-pound right-handed hitting outfielder. Ran a 7.59 sixty at the event. The approach in the outfield is under caution and the throwing is aggressive. Threw 89 mph from the outfield to the plate. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 90 mph. The setup is even in base, knee to knee on the bottom half. The front side glides to the front foot as he gets into the swing, hitting off the front foot. The bat path is clean, could swing the bat with a bit more authority. Uses a 1-handed finish after contact.

Tee Exit Velocity- 90 mph
OF Velocity- 89 mph

6-foot-3, 200-pound right-handed hitting outfielder and pitcher. Seriously athlete with a ton of natural ability. Ran a 4.66 down the line on his dig to first base, Threw 84 mph from the outfield to the plate, easy and aggressive approach. The ability to play a corner outfield spot at the next level. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 87 mph, as he leans on the baseball. The setup is wide in base, uses a knee to knee approach at the plate. The weight gets to the front foot early. The hands work well, lift in the path and serious power potential. On the mound, the fastball touched 83 mph, arm side run to the pitch. The breaking ball is good in shape, siting at 72 mph. The slider is 72 mph, wide in shape. The changeup is a serious pitch, fade and action to it, swing and miss type. The pitch sat at 76-78 mph. Big time prospect for me.

Tee Exit Velocity- 87 mph
OF Velocity- 84 mph

6-foot-3, 200-pound, strong, physical frame, the neck is longer, shoulders are squared off, has a ton of room for future development. A right-handed pitcher, was a nice surprise at this event, pounded the zone with three pitches, with good secondary pitches. The delivery, hands start high, work down with rocker step and then back up with his athletic leg raise, gets to a good gather, front side, glove stays inline, with minimal pull to it.  The arm action is longer with some wrap to the path, arm works out of a natural ¾ slot, with good arm side sink to it. The fastball was clocked at 76-80 mph, look for it to climb. The secondary offerings are good, change has above average action to it, comes out of the same slot, looking like a fastball, clocked at 72-73 mph. Threw both breaking balls, slider being the better of the two, clocked at 71-73 mph, with more horizontal break to it, can be a wipe out pitch at some point. Throws a curveball, which should keep hitters off balanced, clocked slower at 64-68 mph with more top to bottom break.  Times to the plate were at 1.37-1.44. Love the ability to spin the breaking ball, has a chance to be above average offering at the next level.
