4.27.15 - 6-foot-2, 170-pound lanky and athletic left-handed hitting 1B, impressed at the plate and defensively for the Vikings, ranked No. 40 in IL’s 2017 class. Farrell is hitting over .450 this spring from the leadoff spot, and impressed with three line drive singles in four plate appearances. He also barreled a baseball hard in his first at bat on a groudout up the middle, getting down the line in 4.29 seconds. Hits from a square, spread out stance, little to no stride, high back elbow, hands held around his head in setup, little hand movement to load, short path, up the middle/opposite field approach in this game. Two hits were line drives in left center gap, first hit was a line drive right back up the middle. Defensively, made a nice diving play down the line to his backhand, also chested up a tough hop. Premium athlete at first base, with the chance to be a well above average defender there. Speed, arm strength (up to 82 mph on the mound), and leadoff hitter profile could make him an outfielder at the next level as well. High follow prospect in the 2017 class.

Defensively, threw 80 mph from the outfield from long, high ¾ arm slot with accuracy, soft hands fielding the baseball, quick, fluid footwork. At first base, shows soft hands fielding ground balls, long arm action turning the double play, feet work well around the bag. Farrell’s athleticism fits more in the outfield, but lefty/lefty first baseman are not easy to find either. Ran a 7.19 60, high follow prospect in the 2017 class.
10.26.14 - 6-foot-2, 170-pound lanky and athletic left-handed hitting first baseman/left-handed pitcher hits from a spread out, open stance, hands load back smoothly, starts with a high back elbow, explosive bat speed, short path, fluid rhythm, hit several line drives from gap-to-gap, power to pull side, loud on contact, 87 mph exit velocity off the tee.

On the mound, sat 79-82 mph with sink from same arm slot, works exclusively from the stretch, toe down at balance point, shoulders stay level in delivery, lower half stays in line with lower half, lands square, athletic finish. 68-69 mph sluvy breaking ball had late action, gets on the side of it at times missing arm side, but potential to be above average. 71-73 mph changeup flashed arm side run. Farrell is a high follow prospect over the next few years in the class of 2017.
