7/25/19

Currently ranked No. 144 in the state’s 2020 class. 6-foot, 190-pound two-way prospect. Batted third for Chicago Elite. Sets up in a tall stance with a short stride trigger. Showcased a short swing as well as present bat strength, driving the ball to the left field wall multiple times against PTA, as well as deep in the left-center alley at Routine Field against Hitters. Between the two games, finished 4-for-7 with three doubles, four RBI, a run scored and a walk. Quick and athletic actions behind the plate, arm plays clean with carry to the bag, pop-times hovered around the 2-flat mark in between innings on Saturday. On the mound fastball ranged 80-82 mph. Slider has swing and miss outpitch potential, 76 mph. 

10.14.18 - 6-foot, 190-pound two-way player with arm strength. On the mound delivery play tall and fall, regular effort, lands closed to, rotational finish. Short draw arm action, ¾ slot. Fastball plays with slight run to arm side, 82-84 mph. Above average slider for age, 10/4 shape, sweeping action, near fastball arm speed, 74-76 mph. Changeup slightly fades to arm side, 75-76 mph. Right-handed hitter, tall setup, short stride, solid balance. Path is short, line drive contact, 83 mph exit velocity from the tee. Arm played strong out of the crouch, 78 mph, flashed carry. 2.08-2.26 pop times. Ran the 60 at 7.27.

5.8.18 - 5-foot-11, 185-pound, right-handed pitcher; solidly built, athletic build. Came out of the bullpen and got the final two outs in the seventh inning. Long arm action on the backside comes out of a ¾ to low ¾ slot; slinger type arm action with easy effort. Fastball, around the zone, arm-side-run, sat 81 mph. Went to a slider as his go-to secondary offering. Throws it with conviction, above-average feel for age, 10/4 shape, 76-77 mph. Follow 2020 right-handed pitcher.
