07.25.17
Big bodied 6-foot-1, 205 pound right handed hitter.  Open stance with a short stride that dives back toward the plate.  Cuts across the ball at times showing some feel for the barrel.  Worked the middle of the field.  Exit velocity peaked at 76.  Good glove around the bag.  Lacks some bend in the hips, playing high, catching balls deep.  Clean exchanges work to a long arm swing and an over-the-top slot.  Some feel for accuracy, especially when the ball stays in his frame work for the catch.  Average carry at 75 mph across the diamond.  Ran a 5.12 through 1B in game.
On the bump, has some feel for controlling his body.  Fastball ranged 76-77.  Arm side run when thrown to the arm side.  Change-up played well at 70-71.  Arm side fade from the same window as the fastball.  Deceptive to the hitter.  Threw one breaking ball at 70.  Long arm arc works to a high-3/4 slot.  Works level and in-line, landing square.

6-foot-1, 205 pounder works with from an over-the-top slot with average arm speed.  Fights with front side to clear the line, creating some head whack.  Fastball touched 77, ranging 75-77 and filling up the zone.  Change up shows swing and miss potential, sitting 70-71 with fade and deception.  Curveball is short at 69-72 with a small 11/5 tilt.  Strike thrower, located both offspeed pitches in the zone.  Rushed the delivery with some effort, but finds a way to locate.  Limited athleticism that can improve with better quickness in the body.
First baseman has some strength as a right handed hitter.  Works from an open stance with a short stride that dives back to even.  Front side works to stay on the ball with a direct path.  Aggressive demeanor in the box, showed an average awareness of the barrel.  Better than average bat speed, produced an exit velocity of 85mph.  Swing stays gap-to-gap wanting extension with uphill leverage.  Good rhythm throughout.  On the infield, arm strength tested at 76 across the diamond.  Long arm swing to a high-3/4, almost over-the-top slot.  Slightly above average carry, with accuracy.  Tends to play high and on his heels, catching the ball deep.  Quickness in the feet can improve.  Ran a sixty in 7.87
01.14.17
Long arm stroke and high-3/4 slot produced a lot of strikes.  Extremely up tempo pace with a high energy attitude and delivery throughout the bullpen.  The pace would put pressure on hitters to adjust.  Fastball ranged 73-75 in the zone but still working to hit spots.  The breaking ball worked with 11/5 action, showing good handspeed and flashing hard action.  At times, erratic down in the zone, but on line.  Spin topped at 67.  Change-up is the second pitch right now, touching 66 with good deception out of the hand.  Somewhat choppy through the delivery, does work on-line and finishes with an athletic presence.  In the box, the right handed hitter loads back, using a long, aggressive stride from an athletic stance.  Bat loads to a flat position and there is aggression in the swing producing average bat speed while working the middle of the field.  Gets heavy on the front side at times, when early.   Showed some strength producing an exit velocity of 88mph.  On the infield, the arm works clean with a long stroke and an over-the-top slot, flashing accuracy and measuring 74mph across the field.  Footwork can be cleaned.  Tends to work from his heels creating a slow exchange.  Ran the 30 in 4.26.
