April 2016
Extremely lanky RHP who sat 79-82 mph with signs of more from this 6-foot-6 body-build. Curveball showed some loose spin.
Central NY Open (July 15, 2015)
Pitching- Punchard, a 2016 grad, features a tall and lanky build with long but wrapping arm action that produces a slinger's release from a low 3/4 arm slot. The RHP maintains a balanced delivery throughout. Fastball sat 75-78, flashing 80 MPH one time with some sink. Breaking ball was of the slider family,  with tight spin and late tilt, falling in the 2-to-8 shape.  At times Punchard would get underneath and the breaking action would present early. Slows arm slightly on change up but was deceptive with some splitter like action late. More in the tank here. Offensively- Kobie sets with a spread stance that is slightly open. Gets back to even with his stride and creates separation with a bat squeeze on the back side of his load. Weight shifts a bit early leading to some bat lag but he is able to stay level through the zone. Could benefit from his extension staying up and out longer. Showed some pull side pop, repeats swing pitch to pitch. Defensively- Presents good target and moves well around the bag for his size. Would like to see Kobie stay lower into his groundballs and through his throws. As he stands upright he can get flat footed and pull the glove off the ground. 
 
Preseason All-State Showcase (February 15, 2015)
Punchard stands 6-foot-6, 180-pounds with next-level size. Pitching- On the mound he uses a sidestep, hands start low. He uses a high knee lift, separates slightly early before he drives towards home. He stays tall on his back side, arm action is long. Throws from a high-3/4 slot, fastball sat 77 mph with arm run. Curveball was 66 mph with 10/4 shape. With his size, some added velocity with shoot Punchard up the latter quickly. Offensively - At the plate he starts upright, weight shifted back. On the pitch uses a short stride, barrel drops, hips are slightly open. Plane is slightly inclined with great extension out in font, high finish. Exit velo was 84 mph with signs of power. Defensively- At 1B he fields the ball off the bag out in front, glove face open. Arm action is long, finishes over his front knee towards target from a mid-3/4 slot. He ran a 7.3 60 yard dash.
