2/9/20 Pitching Delivery Notes: Hartman uses a high leg kick and a methodical tempo and rhythm as he moves down the mound. He throws from a ¾ arm slot and has a fairly clean arm action. Doesn’t seem to presently get much out of his lower half but the arm works. Fastball: The fastball was 79-81 mph and mostly true through the zone. Curveball: His breaking ball was 65-67 mph and showed curveball shape and spin. Changeup: The changeup was 64-65 mph. Pitchability: Pretty good feel for his stuff. Shows good arm speed on all pitches. Will benefit from adding strength in his lower half to make his delivery a bit more dynamic. 2/9/20 Position Player Hit: Hartman used a mini leg kick to initiate his load and struggled at times with getting his front foot down on time. He showed decent bat to ball ability with a slightly uphill approach at times. Power: 82 mph exit velocity. Offensive Projection: Should be able to develop into a gap to gap guy at the high school level. Field: In the outfield he showed average feet and instincts and didn’t play through the ball particularly well. Throw: 77 mph from the outfield. Defensive Projection: Corner OF

8/1/18
A lefty swinger with a very smooth, efficient stroke. Gets solid use out of lower half, creating both energy and consistent timing. Nice, level swing through the zone with a balanced offering of strength/speed to hands. Line drive swinger now who should develop into a gap guy with maturity. In the outfield he plays under control too and through. Arm plays as a well above average tool for class. Would like to see him get rid of the baseball a bit quicker at times.
