PROCASE 2021

6-foot, 183-pound right-handed pitcher and infielder. He ran a 7.29 sixty at the event. The approach in the infield is athletic and he showed a feel for his glove. The feet can remain active through the fielding process, he threw 85 mph across the diamond at the event. The bat has an exit velocity of 94 mph. The setup is even in base and the front foot gains ground to the baseball as the swing is produced. The path and hands work clean to contact. On the mound, the fastball sat 83-84 mph with arm side action to it. The spin pitch is 69-70 mph, a tad big in shape but can be shortened as he progressed. The changeup is 73-75 mph with fade and sink at times. The delivery is online and the slot is plus 3/4 . The tempo of the delivery is solid and he repeats the process. The arm is quick and the next two years should be interesting for him, as he should throw hard at some point. 

Exit Velocity- 94 mph

INF Velocity- 85 mph

5-foot-11, 173-pound, strong athletic frame, put together well, is bigger than you think, good durable size to him. A right-handed pitcher, simple, controlled delivery, hands staying at the mid-section. The lift is athletic, coil to it, strong front arm, is squared up on release. The arm action is super clean, works with easy effort, working from a 3/4 to higher 3/4 slot. The fastball was located to both sides of the plate, clocked at 87 mph, sat at 84-85 mph. Threw two plus secondary pitches, curveball, has proper shape and spin, clocked at 70 mph. The changeup has arm side fade and action to it, clocked at 76-77 mph, comes out of his hand looking like a fastball. Big time follow, a strike throwing machine, with a ton more in there.

7/01/20

5-foot-11, 164-pound, average athletic frame, sloped shoulders, showing wiry strength, having room for added weight. A middle infielder, can defend at a very high level, a slick fielder. The hands are super soft out front, feet move throughout, prep-steps are advanced, gets around the baseball, moving towards target. The arm is clean, whippy with serious strength, clocked at 85 mph, plenty arm and carry to stay on the left-side of the infield. The double play starts and turns are performed correct, are advanced, can handle the pivot on both sides of the bag. Offensively, is short to the baseball, hands are inside, looks to stay in the middle of the field. Can handle the bat and maneuver the barrel to the baseball, barrel stays in the zone a long time. The exit velocity was in the mid 80's with more in there as he adds strength and mass. An average runner, ran a 7.31, is athletic enough to be a 7.0 runner at some point. Good follow, high defender.

Exit Velocity: 85 mph

Arm Velocity: 85 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.31
