6/26/18

6-foot-1, 175-pound right-handed hitting infielder and pitcher. He continues to develop well on the field and showed gains in strength. On the mound, the fastball touched 81 mph. The spin pitch is up to 71 and showed plus depth at times. The changeup is a work in progress, 70-71 mph. Fade needs to be added to the pitch. The delivery is online with his feet, plus ¾ in slot. The tempo is quick, lead leg swing into foot strike and the glove comes across the hitters face. The back leg sinks at times, when he stays tall the flight of the ball is downhill. The arm works well and I like him on the mound. Defensively, the feet work well in the infield and the glove is in play. The hands are soft. Threw 78 mph across the diamond with carry and accuracy. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 81 mph, strength is needed. The setup is even in base, and the hands work. The bottom half is under control throughout. The path is up and over to contact, needs to flatten the path and stay through the ball. Ran a 4.65 down the line on his dig to first base.

Tee Exit Velocity- 81 mph

6-foot-1, 165-pound right-handed hitting infielder. This is 3rd time we have seen Joseph and he continues to improve his game. The frame is long and he moves well atheltically. Ran a 7.34 sixty at the event. The glove and footwork in the infield is on point. He shows a quick release and threw 74 mph across the infield with accuracy. Could play all 3 positions in the infield. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 84 mph. The set up is even with his feet, slight bend in his knees and relaxed hands. The path is simple to the ball and he centers the ball well.  He is trending in the right direction.

6-foot-1, 165-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder and right-handed pitcher.  On the mound, the fastball touched 80 mph, downhill and straight to the hitter. The breaking ball is good, 11/7 with depth, sat at 67 mph. The changeup shows the correct spin, sits at 71 mph. The delivery is online with his feet and the direction of the front side is appropriate. The arm works well, comes at the hitter in a plus ¾ slot. The lift is abbreviated at times and athletic.  Good feel for the spin pitch. Defensively, shows soft hands in the infield, the prep steps are improving and he has plenty of arm strength. Threw 75 across the diamond with minimal effort. Ran a 4.53 down the line on his dig to first base. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 81 mph. The set up is close with his feet, and there is a small pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches. The hands work loosely, the frame needs strength as he matures. Solid prospect across the board, and a good follow.

6-foot-1, 165-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder and pitcher. Defensively, shows soft hands  and the ability to make all the throws. Prep steps to and through the ball will help him become a better defender as well. Threw 70 mph across the infield out of a nice slot. Handles the pivot appropriately. Ran a 4.59 down the line on his dig to first base. Offensively, the bat has a tee exit velocity of 78 mph, physical strength is needed. Sets up with his feet close, front foot slightly open and it closes down as the ball approaches. The front foot gains distance to the ball as he goes into contact phase. The path has loft in it and it shows potential. Getting his feet underneath him during the swing will help. On the mound, pitches out of a higher than ¾ slot. The fastball touched 77 mph, downhill plane to it. The breaking ball has a great shape to it, and has the makings of an out pitch. Sits at 67 mph. The delivery is online with his feet, the lift is athletic and methodical. Does coil the top half as he makes his way into foot strike. The arm swing is ideal, showing no hyperextension on the back half. Glove side comes across the hitters face. Threw strikes and showed well for me. Good follow on both side.

11/30/-1

6-foot-1, 185-pound right-handed pitcher and middle infielder. Positionally, ran a 4.4 down the line on his dig to first base. The glove is solid in the field and he moves the feet appropriately during the fielding process. Threw 78 mph across the diamond, out of a clean arm.  The ability to paly all 3 spots is present in his game. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 83 mph. The setup is wide in base, pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches. The path can be flattened as he top spin some balls at this point but the hands work very well. Strength gains will aid his offensive approach as well. On the mound, the fastball touched 81 mph, arm side run to the pitch. The spin pitch is god in shape, sitting 71-74 mph, very good at times. The changeup is a developing pitch. The delivery has minimal crossfire to it, pitched out of the stretch. The slot is slightly above 3/4 and loose. The leg lift is minimal and he get the front foot down quickly. The glove comes across the hitters face. The back half has minor sink to it, causing an uphill plane at times. I like his arm and he swung the bat very well in the game.
