Ward is a talented, physical 6-foot-1, 210 pound right-handed hitting catching prospect. He hits out of an athletic, slightly open stance with the hands sitting just off the back shoulder. The load begins with a big leg kick, allowing him to stack his weight over the back leg. Once he begins the swing, he transitions his weight, gets the bat into a flat path and creates real force through the hitting zone. The hands work well, producing a lot of loud contact and a max exit velocity of 97 MPH during the batting practice. He finishes through contact and remains balanced throughout the swing.

Defensively, the actions behind the plate are good. He transitioned well into the throwing position and the arm was 76 MPH down to second base. The stance is balanced over the feet, with the glove centered in the chest. He gets the hips turned, in line with the target, using a quick exchange to get the ball into a quick short arm swing. He finishes over the front leg, maintaining a good line with his target.

Exit Velocity- 97 mph

 

Catching Velocity- 76 mph

7/01/20

6-foot, 182-pound, solid, strong, durable athletic frame. A right-handed hitting catcher, who works off the mound as well. Behind the plate, has an above average arm, clocked at 78 mph, with a pop time of 2.0-2.09. The arm is quick and strong, smooth easy arm action from a 3/4 slot. The feet are quick, gets inline to second, closes down the front side, pops up quick, could stay lower longer. Receives with strong hands and secures the pitch. Off the mound, worked the fastball to arm side, with action, clocked at 81 mph. The delivery is under control, small collapse on backside, direction is inline. The arm works out of a high 3/4 slot, short and clean on the backside. Shows the makings of a solid slider, with good hand speed. At the plate, feet are even at shoulder width. The hands held higher, with a flat setup, are relaxed and loaded to hit. For timing shifts weight to backside, higher leg kid,  gains ground with stride foot.  The swing is level through the zone, more of a middle to pull side approach. The exit velocity was clocked at 91 mph. Look for him to be an offensive catcher at the next level.

Exit Velocity: 91 mph

Arm Velocity: 78 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.32

6-foot, 182-pound right-handed hitting catcher and pitcher. I thought he showed good versatility at the event as well as an advanced skill set at a young age. The skill set behind the dish is solid, as he threw 76 mph down to second base with a pop time of 2.01. The feet need to be smoothed out during the transfer, should be an easy fix with practice. The arm has plenty of strength to it. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 90 mph. The setup is athletic, uses leg lift as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is flat with life through contact. The bat has buggy whip to it. On the mound, the fastball sat 79-80 mph with run. The slider is solid in action, 73-75 mph. The changeup is a developing pitch and he showed a breaking ball at 69-71 mph. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is 3/4. The lift is solid in tempo and he rotates through leg drive as the ball is delivered. The arm is quick and clean, good amount of recoil at release.  Good looking prospect. 

Tee Exit Velocity- 90 mph

Catching Velocity- 76 mph

Pop Time- 2.01

6-foot, 182 pound right-handed hitting catcher is one of the most talented players in his class.  As a position player, he is physical and athletic.  Then he goes on the mound, and showcases some legit arm talent. 

Offensively, he had one of our higher tee exit velocities at 90 mph. He hits out of an athletic, slightly open stance.  The hands sit just off the back should, with a little pre pitch movement.  The load is controlled and allows him to be in a strong position to get the bat going.  The swing plane is direct to contact and he stays through the hitting zone well after contact.  The swing is fluid! The hand speed is evident and shows his ability to drive the ball gap to gap.

Defensively, I like the actions behind the plate.  He receives well and the arm was 76 mph down to second base.  The stance is balanced over the feet, with the glove in a relaxed position.  As he transitions to throw, the feet are quick and light.  He gets the hips turned, in line with the target.  The exchange from the glove to hand is at the midline of the chest with the shoulders getting square with the target.  He finishes over the front leg, with a quick arm.

Tee Exit Velocity- 90 mph

Catching Velocity- 76 mph

6-foot, 182-pound, strong, solid athletic frame. Longer neck, sloped shoulders, well proportioned with strength throughout, room for added weight gains. A right-handed hitter, showed well on both sides of the field. At the plate, feet are set at shoulder width, hands are loose at the shoulders. For timing uses a bigger leg kick,  swing path is level to up, with more of a pull approach. Showed enough juice to beat the pull side outfielder. The tee exit velocity was 85 mph, powerful at times. Ran a 7.59 sixty-yard dash, moves well for a bigger kid. Defensively, arm was clocked at 76 mph, quick clean arm from a higher slot. Pop time of 2.14-2.20. The setup was low to the ground, moved well behind the plate. The hands are strong and soft and secures the catch. Look for him to be a frontline offensive catcher at the next level. 

Tee Exit Velocity: 85 mph
Arm Velocity: 76 mph
Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.59
