New York Games (July 2015)
Standing at 5-foot-10-inches, 160-pounds has a small, athletic body type. Aggressive and shows quality range in the field, stays deep with glove and looks balls into his hands when receiving, throws at a high-3/4 arm slot and has good accuracy to target. Behind the plate he uses a wide base, receives with confidence, uses very quick hands and a clean transfer. Accurate sub 2.0 pop time to second. At the plate shows a balanced and open stance, uses a smooth back load and long stride to generate potential power at contact, hands stay long and over the plate with some uphill tilt of bat plane. Shows projection as a hitter with solid contact ability.

O'Shei stands 5-foot-10, 154-pounds with a solid frame, athletic build. Behind the plate there was no one faster glove-to-hand-to-release than O'Shei. He showed consistently a 1.92 to second with one of our clocks getting him as low as an unreal 1.81. Regardless, his hands are lightning fast giving opposing runners almost no chance. He shows athletic blocking ability moving well side to side. At the plate he starts with his weight pushed back, hands back load up on the pitch. Barrel drops some on his path forward, plane is uphill with long extension out in front.

O'Shei stands 5-foot-10, 154-pounds with a solid frame who also plays up the middle.  He shows a ton of upside at both positions.  Though slightly undersized right now, his arm plays like a next level catcher.  He had a 26” vertical leap and jumped over 8’ on the broad jump.  Behind the plate he’s still mechanically a little green with his receiving skills but his transfer, release, and arm strength is second to none in the state right now.  Being a dual position player we can tell he hasn’t gotten enough work behind the plate to really see his full potential.  As an infielder you can see he’s fundamentally sound with good footwork getting around the baseball and limiting the extra movement to show quick release.  He fields everything out in front and doesn’t let the ball spend much time in the glove.  At the plate he shows quick hands and good use of his lower body.  He generates good power with a frame that has not yet filled out.  He does get a little longer than we’d like to see with his bat path occasionally.  With added strength in the weight room and still early in his junior year, this 2016 is definitely one to keep an eye on this spring and summer.
