Maryland Preseason All-State Session I

Body: 6’0’’, 190 pounds. Strong, compact frame with connection throughout. 
Hit: RHH. Wide, balanced stance with the hands starting near the head to begin; utilized a gather, bow and arrow type load with a full body rock to the backside, a leg-hang stride created stretch allowing the barrel to enter the hitting zone through a flat path. Flashed some loft in the approached evidenced by a 36% fly ball rate via Trackman Baseball. An 83% on-plane efficiency (Blast Motion) points to the ability to consistently find the bat head at the plate. Room for even more juice as he keeps maturing. 
Power: 90 mph exit velocity during BP per TrackMan. Near 300 foot batted ball distance with increased barrel awareness should allow for doubles power to the pull-side at the moment. 
Arm: RH. INF - 79 mph. Takeaway moves down and then back for a full arm circle, no restrictions. Accurate across the diamond with high-intent on throws. 
Defense: Arrived on time with an up tempo play style, sometimes stayed behind the ball til the last second and worked through. Semi-soft glove hand with funnels into the belt loop, showcased some feel moving to the glove side during defensive evals. Adequate handle on the play on the run, throwing from the same high-¾ slot as usual. 
Run: 8.50 60-yard time.

Delivery: Quick pace to the delivery starting off the middle of the rubber; straight back rocker step into a slight hip coiled stack with the ribs tucked in, explosive move out of hand break with a quick arm hiding the baseball and coming through a moderate, high ¾ slot. 
Arm Action: RH. Moderate, high ¾ slot / quick arm speed and minimal restrictions on the takeaway, efficient. 
FB: T79 mph, 77-78 mph. Average spin rate of 1817 rpm. Played better down in the zone with arm-side run to the inside on a RHH. 
CB: 57-63 mph. Average spin rate of 1645 rpm. Slow-breaking with plenty of horizontal movement across the plate. Will be more deceptive with additional velocity. 
SL: 66-70 mph. Average spin rate of 1896 rpm. True out pitch with up to 16 inches of horizontal movement away from a RHH. Finished with intent and held the same arm speed as the FB.
