Notes

Comments

2/21/22

Physical: 5-foot-8, 150 pounds; Proportional, athletic build. 7.23 runner in the 60.

Offensively: LHH. Even setup, with feet wide spread; upright bat position. Loads straight back with an up and down stride for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing an aggressive lower half. Showed a short swing path with a two handed finish.  More line drives than fly balls and ground balls with a peak exit velocity of 88 MPH via Trackman. Advanced bat to ball abilitites (97% On plane efficiency).

Defensively: Starts with a balanced setup; uses prep hop while showing active feet. Hands are underneath the body while funneling to the hip before transfer. Moderate arm circle from a low 3/4 arm slot. INF - 80 MPH.  

10/10/21

Physical: 5-foot-7, 150 pounds; Proportional, athletic build.    

Pitching: Cheplick uses a center rubber setup working primarily from the stretch. Mid chest leg drive with a full coil away from the plate. Has a long stride while landing open. Long arm swing while  arm stays in line with 2B, working through a high 3/4 slot. Square to the plate with finish. FB: Peak velo of 76 MPH, while sitting 74-75 MPH; commands both sides. CB: 54-57 MPH; showed depth. CH: 64-65 MPH; fading action. 

2/18/21

Physical: Developing 5-foot-7, 135 pound frame with sneaky athleticism in the movements. Room to fill out as he matures; 7.49 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Starts from a balanced, even stance with a slight bend into the backside drive leg as the torso holds with positioning; high hands to begin allowing for a flat path upon entry into the hitting zone, initiated the swing with a short, on-time lift and replace stride yielding hard line drive contact back through the box (54% line drive rate). Was repeatedly on the barrel and confident in the bat to ball skills yielding an 82 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball; a 94% on-plane efficiency points to just how good he can be down the line (should hit for average at a high level). 

Defensively: The primary shortstop featured quality right-to-left momentum at the fielding window with good downhill posture and chest angles towards the target, created positive angles on routes to induce momentum; accurate 78 mph arm strength from a short, quick high ¾ slot; room for more as he strengthens his body, liked the actions.


3/01/20

Physical: Compact, athletic build. 8.23 runner in the 60; 4.87 home-to-1B.
Offensively: LHH. Upright stance with an even base, knees bent in, hands start back behind ears and work back on load along with a small leg lift for timing Direct barrel path, hands stay inside the ball well, uphill swing plane finishing high with two hands. Opposite field/up the middle approach. 71 MPH raw exit velocity.
Defensively: Active footwork on approach, fields the ball in the middle of his body, could get it more out in front. Long arm swing with a high 3/4 arm slot. INF - 62 MPH.
Pitching: Starts with a small drop step and leg lift to the belt, stays tall and stride out with shoulders in line before pulling through with intent and following through to the glove side.   Moderate arm swing going straight back before getting to a 3/4 release. FB: T65, 61-64 MPH. Locates in the zone with tail.
