8/10/22

OF Jayden Malone (Metea Valley, 2023) was a winner offensively, starting with a quality showing in BP. Malone, who averaged the highest hand speed of any prospect in attendance at 25.9 mph, worked direct to contact with a short, quick right-handed stroke that produced quality line drive contact to all fields. He showed that knack for contact in game, finding the barrel a few times in game one and working a deep count against high-end velocity on day two before lining out to second base. 

6/28/22

Malone, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound, right-handed hitter, stays quiet throughout letting the ball travel deep into the hitting zone. He stays short, quick and strong through contact with present twitch and bat speed. Malone has advanced hand speed, leading the event in a wide margin at an average of 25.7 mph. He also showed off the top rotational acceleration by a wide margin as well. Malones furthest ball off the bat traveled 344 feet. He also takes confident, concise routes in the outfield, topping at 78 mph and running a 7.05 60.
