Hit:Bat to follow in the 2022 class. Efficient pre-launch movements that create both balance and energy. Found the barrel often in BP, distributing the ball all around the yard. Natural tools are respectable and should only get louder as he fills out athletic frame. Solid round.

Max BP Distance: 327 ft
Field:Moves well in the outfield. Fast feet with an athletic play through.

6/27/18
Two-way prospect. Southpaw on the bump with a slower paced tempo to his rhythmic delivery. Gets down the mound well with direction and energy. Slight closed landing with good extension leading to a release point out in front. Like the aggression/intent to each offerings. Fastball has natural run to it sitting 70-72 mph. Changeup is thrown with fastball arm speed showing dive to it at 58-60 mph. Completing his arsenal is a near 12/6 breaking ball thrown consistently for a strike at 54-59 mph. Liked what I saw from Pirkle at the plate. Lefty swinger with athletic actions in the box. Loose swing with noticeable whip through the zone with some loft to path. Impressive hand eye/feel for squaring up the baseball. Sprayed line drives all over the field. Very efficient swing with more in there as physical maturation takes its course. In the outfield he shows above average athleticism as he maintains fluidity throughout sequence. Corner type with accurate arm.
60-yard dash: 8.21
Outfield Velocity: 67
Exit Velocity: 64
