7/28/21

Physical: Lanky, projectable 5-foot-10, 143lb frame with room to add strength. 8.26 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH - Slightly upright, back-leaning stance with the hands starting higher with some rhythm pre-swing. Utilized a short lift and replace stride, initiating the swing through a slightly uphill, contact driven path into the hitting zone towards a two-handed finish. Showed off proper weight shift into impact, producing a leveraged 54% fly ball rate (via Trackman) during his round with ability to lift pitches in all zones. Posted a T81 mph bat-exit velocity with more on the way, finding a 290 foot distance on his best swing (occasional doubles juice to pull). 

Defensively: The outfielder displayed longer, developing actions during defense. Gaining ground in the strides laterally. Able to chop the feet before fielding with adequate pace, bending at the waist as a soft glove hand funneled inward. Accurate H ¾ slot and 62 mph arm (good extension).

Pitching: RHP - The righty operated from the glove-side of the rubber out of the stretch-only. Quick, lower leg-lift to the stack, working into a taller position at footstrike, as the arm took over from a H ¾ slot. The FB ranged from 60-65 mph mixing a shorter 55-57 mph CB with similar sell at release.

4/03/21

Physical: 5-foot-10, 120LBS. 8.25SEC 60-Yard Dash.

Offensively: Starts in an upright stance with high hands. Feet slightly wider than shoulder width with weight on the inside of the right foot. Hands work back and remain high during the load. Subtle weight transfer as the lead leg strides. On attack the hands move down to initiate the swing, moving through the hitting zone with a downward attack angle.

Defensively: Primary OF. Prepares with a wide base and low chest angle. Fields from a wide base and on the run. Will shuffle and use a pro step to prepare to throw. Exchanges at the midline of the body and the arm moves out and up into the throwing motion. From there the arm moves forward to release.
