Maryland Preseason All-State Session I

Body: 5’10’’, 180 pounds. Strong, well put together frame with good proportions throughout. 
Hit: RHH. Narrow, balanced setup with the hands showing methodical rhythm at the shoulder to start; utilized a lift and replace stride entering the hitting zone through a flat path towards a shallow finish. Stayed mostly upright in the posture while hitting into a stiff front side; showed impressive hand speed at the plate (24.8 mph max via Blast Motion) with punch through the middle of the field during his round. Room for more as he continues refinement, an average of 21.9 G’s of rotational acceleration (Blast Motion) points to a big time power ceiling down the road. 
Power: 88 mph exit velocity during BP per TrackMan. Doubles power at the moment especially to the pull-side gap. Got negative on the attack at times on this date which, if cleaned up, will pose exponential gains in the power department. 
Arm: RH. INF - 81 mph. Full arm circle releasing from a high ¾ slot, accuracy across the diamond. 
Defense: Arrived on time with exceptional pace during defensive evaluations. Worked right foot, left foot, funnel and release, giving confidence that he can hold down the hot corner moving forward. The glove hand showed smoothly out in front with on time funnels and flow on the approach, made the play on the run with confidence too.
Run: 7.75 60-yard time.

Delivery: Started off the left side of the rubber showing off a short side rocker into a medium leg lift with hip coil; good extension and leg drive to a straight-line, wide base position out towards the plate. Athletic finish over the toes. 
Arm Action: RH. High ¾ / OTT slot with repeatability in the arm. 
FB: T79 mph, 77-79 mph. Average spin rate of 2020 rpm. Mostly flat fastball with good IVB numbers allowing for ride (21.1 inches on average). 
CB: 67-69 mph. Average spin rate of 2220 rpm. 25% zone rate with hard break across the plate (12 inches of HM on average). Feel for spin on the off-speed. 
KN: 67-68 mph. Occasional feel, mostly tumbling action.
