7/16/19

6-foot-2, 250-pound right-handed pitcher. The frame is big and durable. The arm works clean and he has quickness to his arm. The delivery has minimal crossfire to the feet and the slot is above 3/4. The direction of the front shoulder comes offline prior to getting to foot strike. The glove has minimal pull to it. The fastball sat 84-85 mph, minimal arm side action to the pitch. The spin pitch is nasty in action, would be even more deadly if he could command it. sat 76 -77 mph. The changeup is a work in progress. The skill set is there to be a high level arm, needs to make some tweaks in his direction to get sync'd up. 

6/19/19

6-foot-2, 250-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball touched 85 mph, downhill at times and showed heaviness. The spin pitch is really good at times, sitting at 75-76 mph. The changeup is a work in progress. The delivery has minimal crossfire to the feet and above 3/4 in slot. The glove has pull to it, taking him off line. The backside has a small amount of collapse to it. The lift is repeated and the finish is through the ball. 

3/17/19

6-foot-2, 240-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball touched 85 mph, downhill plane at times as he is inconsistent with his posture through the delivery. The spin pitch is hard and sharp, sitting 72-73 mph. The pitch could be an above average college breaking ball. The changeup is a work in progress, as he is still looking to get a feel for the minus pitch. The delivery is online and the slot is above 3/4 . There is effort in the delivery and the frame is thick and durable. The lift is repeated, front side goes high as he makes his way into foot strike. The glove has pull to it, taking him offline at times. The arm itself is outstanding, needs to get sync’d up with his feet so he can get on time and develop. I like the arm and I think he is a D1 arm. He is going to throw hard at some point.

6-foot-2, 240-pound right-handed pitcher who has made the full conversion from catcher to pitcher.  The delivery is quick in tempo and the frame is thick and durable. The slot is above ¾, the tracking of the front shoulder has improved to foot strike, leading to more extension. The lift is repeated and the ball jumps out of his hand. The fastball touched 86 mph, downhill at times. There is plenty more in the tank. The spin pitch is a true breaking ball, sitting at 69 mph, the depth of the pitch is good. Would like to see a bit more fastball hand speed to the pitch. The changeup is developing, improved since the last time we saw him, sat at 80 mph. Big time prospect for me.

6-foot-2, 240-pound right-handed pitcher. Very impressive arn, the frame is big, thick and durable. The fastball touched 86 mph, downhill plane to it. The breaking ball is correct in shape, sat at 73 mph. The pitch is an out pitch now, should be a legit one in the coming years. The delivery is online with his feet, plus ¾ in slot. The lift is repeated and he gains distance to the plate. Would like to see the direction of his front shoulder improve as he comes off line. The glove has pull across his body as of now. The upside for this guy is enormous. The stuff is already in play, gonna be scary if he can tweak his front side direction.  Big follow.

8/02/17

6-foot-2, 230-pound right-handed pitcher. Up until this point we had only been able to see Connor catch and hit. He only pitched at this event and showed plus arm strength for his age. The fastball touched 86 mph with arm side action to it. The spin pitch, needs work but the shape is promising. The pitch sits at 72-73 mph. The changeup is a work in progress. Pitches out of a slightly higher than ¾ arm slot, the arm is clean and short on the backside. The lift is appropriate, and his feet have minimal crossfire. Comes at you with the glove and then comes the ball. Shows some effort in his delivery but the arm strength can’t be ignored.

6/28/17

6-foot-2, 220- pound right-handed hitting catcher. Threw 77 mph down to second base with carry. The arm really works and it’s clean. Pop time of 1.99, the accuracy of his throws needs to continue to improve as he is advanced for his age. The receiving is solid at this point, could be softened up and securing the catch could improve as he matures. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 88 mph as he has strength in the barrel. Hits out of an wide stance, front-foot open to start. The front foot closes down as the ball approaches, small collapse of the back leg as he gets into the swing. This causes an uphill path, should be easy to clean up with a leverage check. Love this guys potential to catch and hit.

Tee Exit Velocity- 88 mph
Catching Velocity- 77 mph
Pop Time- 1.99
 

3/12/17

6-foot, 220-pound, thick, wide, strong athletic frame, should be extremely physical in two years. A right-handed hitting catcher, defensively the arm is advanced for his age, clocked at 79 mph, pop times were 1.98-2.18. The transfer is clean for his age, gets glove hand to throwing hand, feet get in line, right foot replaces left foot. Stands up to throw, needs to stay lower, head comes off target, try to keep the head still. The arm action is clean, baseball comes out of a higher slot. Offensively, hits from the right side, the setup is open, hands are set at shoulder height. The lower half is under control, has a minimal stride. The swing path is level to up, finishes it off with two hands. The tee exit velocity was 76 mph. The approach is more to the pull side, gets rotational at the backend of the swing. Someone to follow, defensive side has a chance.

Forty-Yard Dash: 5.69
Exit Velocity: 76 mph
Arm Velocity: 79 mph

2018 FUTURE GAMES

6-foot-2, 240-pound right-handed pitcher. Big and thick frame, should be able to hold a high velocity as he matures. The arm is above ¾ in slot, and the arm works clean. The feet are online. The tracking of the front shoulder needs to be directed to the plate as he pulls off the target way too soon. This causes his slot to get a little too high at times. The back leg has sink to it at times, causing him to lose posture. The arm is big and I’ve seen him throw harder, as he just converted in the last year from being a catcher. The fastball touched 84 mph, downhill at times. The spin pitch is a breaking ball, the shape is good. The pitch sat at 70-73 mph. The changeup is a work in progress, sitting at 72 -75 mph.
