Notes

Comments

7/28/21

Physical: Lengthy, strong 6-foot, 174lb frame with leverage available. 6.87 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Wider, balanced setup at a medium posture as the hands operated loosely in close by the head. Utilized a barrel tip on time with a leg kick stride, initiating a quick barrel with clean separation into the hitting zone through a slightly uphill path. Featured solid effort at the plate, but hit behind the baseball consistently with natural bat to ball skills producing big results to the pull-side of the field. Notched a T101 mph bat-exit velocity at his peak (via Trackman) and recorded a 380 foot batted ball distance for home run power. An easy middle of the order type bat with acceleration through impact and eye-popping bat-speeds. 

Defensively: The shortstop demonstrated advanced actions, arriving with a purpose to the ball, right-left and released from a H ¾ slot. No extra movements needed after fielding, staying clean and direct with an above average left side arm at 92 MPH (accurate, manipulated slot, threw well across his body). Day one starter on defense with range to either side.


6/30/21

Physical: Strong, projectable 6-foot, 174lb frame with some length and athleticism found. 7.07 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Balance, even stance as the hands started at a 45 just above the shoulder. Utilized a leg lift stride, holding posture and initiating through a twitchy slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Created some separation with noticeable hand speed getting towards extension, producing loud pull-side contact and loft in the approach (55% line drive rate via Trackman). Posted a T102 mph bat-exit velocity (95 mph AVG via Trackman) with eye-popping numbers during batting practice. Peppered the pull-side gap en route to a near 380 foot batted ball distance, which was good enough for multiple home-runs over the LF wall. Impact type hitter that will get plenty of looks as a middle of the order run producer. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop demonstrated a hop in the “prep step” with good reads off the bat, sticking the foot in the ground and gaining distance on the ball. Presented a soft glove hand on time with the left foot, able to maintain posture and drive over the front-side towards the target. Natural feel in space with athleticism taking over, throwing accurately on the move from a primary H ¾ slot (89 mph arm peak, shortstop projection). 


9/19/20

Physical: Lean / uber-athletic 6-foot-1, 162-pound frame with likeable qualities to his game overall. 6.88 runner in the 60-yard dash. Offensively: RHH. Balanced, loose setup as the hands showed rhythm at ear height. Utilized a controlled lift and replace stride in order to initiate the barrel through a slightly uphill path and into the hitting zone. Had no issues matching plane early and often on pitches in any quadrant, turned the bat head around early in the swing creating whip through impact, got through extension with authority peppering both gaps with hard line drive contact during a standout round of batting practice. Good posture throughout with sink into the lower half, hit into a stiff front side at impact. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 97 mph according to Trackman Baseball / high level hitter with ability to continue adding to the power category as he builds strength. 44% fly ball rate and 22% hard hit rate should tell you everything you need to know about the noticeable pop, has the mechanics and attack angle to be a solid hitter down the road. Defensively: The primary shortstop featured active footwork with advanced actions during defensive evaluations, played low to the ground with a medium-low center of gravity and fielded off of the left side of his body, made sure to continuously play through the baseball with downhill momentum towards the target, above average pace from the left side of the infield. Made the play on the run effortlessly using quick transfers and an accurate high ¾ slot on throws across the diamond. Above average arm strength and should stick at shortstop moving forward. INF - 82 mph
