Notes

Comments

3/18/22

Illinois-Chicago commit and currently ranked No. 58 in Illinois. Athletic moving southpaw that works from a 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame, plenty of upside. Clean arm circle out of the glove that moves into an over-the-top slot. Up-tempo delivery down the mound, efficient movement patterns with his lower-half, remaining in-line to the plate. His fastball worked mostly 85-86 mph early on, riding through the zone to his arm-side and missing barrels, playing at the top of the zone at times. The separator in his arsenal is his curveball; thrown with intent and advanced shape, tunneling off his fastball with late 1/7 action, 75-77 mph. Athletic left-hander with a high ceiling. 

4/27/21

Uncommitted, currently ranked No. 84 in Illinois. 6-foot-1, 165-pound, left/left, two-way prospect. Started on the mound for Plainfield North and led off at the plate. Despite uneven results on the mound, Bak is a follow left-handed arm in the class. Compact arm action works from an over-the-top slot. Directional delivery, loads into back leg and lands square down the mound. Fastball comes out of the hand easy, true four-seam action, plays straight with above-average spin metrics; sat 83-85 mph with a max rpm of 2529 on the fastball. Also, creates above-average spin on his curveball, works 12/6 to 1/7, 71-72 mph (T2506 rpm). At the plate, loose, athletic left-handed swing. Creates bat speed and whip through the zone, Finished 1-for-3 with two walks and two RBIs.

9/13/20

6-foot, 160-pound, high-waisted, athletically-built, two-way prospect; Could have been in the running for MVP of the weekend thanks to his performance at the plate and on the mound. At the plate, was locked in throughout the weekend. Pre-pitch rhythm, stays within himself and lets his hands work. Whippy, loose hands, covers the entire plate, uses the whole field and was on the barrel in seemingly every at-bat. Line-drive approach and feel for the barrel. Also threw a gem early in the weekend where he struck out 11 in 5.1 innings pitched. Follow 2022 two-way prospect trending up.
