Athletic 5-foot-7, 150 pounds OF. Ran a 7.09 60 yard dash. Offensively- The fast twitch OF stands in with a slightly open stance, uses a toe tap for timing with a small load. Loose hands, quick to the hitting zone and gets hips cleared at the point of contact. Stays balanced throughout the swing and really uses the lower half to drive the baseball. Had an exit velocity of 85 MPH. Defensively- Has a bounce to his step. Quick and under control to the ball. Has a quick transfer from fielding the ball out in front, quick ¾ arm action. Accurate throws with a 78 OF velocity. The 2020 OF has some bounce to his step and flies around. Displayed some pop during the hitting portion. The OF is someone to watch going forward.
WNY ASG (September 23, 2018)
Lean build at 5-foot-7, 150-pounds. Ran a 7.12 60 yard dash. Offensively – Narrow, up right set up in the box. Slightly open to the pitcher. Steps back into a toe-tap before getting into forward stride. Balanced swing that stays level thru the zone. Shows loose wrists and quick hands.  Exit velocity was 83 MPH. Defensively – Light on his feet in the OF. Smooth fielding actions. Quick exchange into throws. Long, loose arm action from high ¾ slot. Uses a side shuffle to create momentum on throws. Arm strength was 75 MPH.

Loved to throw it around from behind the plate, attempting pickoffs at first and third numerous time. Strong arm, quick release, threw out one runner stealing at second. Moved well laterally to block a bunch of pitches in the dirt.

Small athletic frame, compact build, Arm has shown better in the past from the OF but still had carry behind his throws with a quick Release. Slightly open stance in the box, loads up with a toe tap, quick hands to the ball, demonstrates gap-to-gap power, nice looking young prospect to keep an eye on. PitchingAthletic 2-way player with quick actions and a compact delivery on the mound. Very repeatable delivery. FB shows good life in the zone 80-83 mph and he generates tight spin on his CB 70-72. Works quickly at goes after hitters. Good mound presence. 

Preseason - East (February 22, 2018)

Standing 5-foot-7, 150-pounds from a very lean athletic build, ran a 4.25 home-to-first, extremely scrappy hard-nosed player in the 2020 class on the rise.  he uses a slightly open stance at the plate, wide base semi crouched with loose hands. Has a long aggressive stride on the pitch sometimes getting himself out in front too early, although it does work for his aggressive style,  barrel path is mostly level to the ball, 86 mph exit velocity off a tee showing plenty of easy bat speed, pull side power is evident now. From the OF, very athletic and aggressive to the ball fields on his glove side out in front with a quick clean transfer, arm strength is well above average for his age peeking at 87 mph with plenty of hand speed out in front from a high 3/4 slot. From the mound, is mechanics show fluid pace slightly fast in tempo, high leg lift.  He uses the drop and drive method, drives hard on his back side towards home plate, lands with full hip separation and stride length, delivers the pitch from a high 3/4 slot with clean arm action, 81 mph fastball, curveball has 10/5 late shape at 65-68 mph.  Overall, extremely talented 2020 prospect to keep a close eye on from the Southern Tier of New York.
