6/19/18

A righty swinger that starts in a balanced stance. Loading sequence is simple, yet efficient creating both balance and regular timing. Path is slightly uphill and swing shows intent. Both strength and speed to hands are above average for class. His loft in path allows him to lift the ball naturally without sacrificing bat speed. In the outfield he plays under control with adequate ball skills through fielding. Plays through on glove foot side, slowing momentum a bit to ensure ball security. Arm strength will be area for improvement moving forward. Shows present accuracy to throws. Good athlete behind the dish with fluid actions. Starts in a low crouch before exploding out of his stance, creating direction/momentum while gaining ground. Transfer was clean and throws were accurate. Will see easy improvements in pop times as arm strengthens with maturity.

Home to 1st: 4.66
Pop Times: 2.28-2.38
Catcher Velocity: 66
Outfield Velocity: 69
Exit Velocity: 81

6/13/18

A righty swinger that starts in an athletic setup. Uses an efficient load, launching from a balanced position. Path is slightly uphill with feel for squaring up the barrel consistently. Line drive guy presently with more to come as physical maturation takes its course.  In the outfield he plays fast but maintains control. Looks mechanically sound through while showing adequate ball skills for the spot. Threw with accuracy and developing strength to home plate. Most projectable defensively behind the dish. Receives well and is mechanically sound catch and throw guy. Should see improvements in pop times naturally as actions speed up and arm strengthens.

Home to 1st: 4.76
Pop Times: 2.15-2.27
Catcher Velocity: 61
Outfield Velocity: 68
Exit Velocity: 77

2/16/18

5-foot-11, 150 pound right-handed pitcher has a smaller frame to him while throwing from a ¾ arm slot with shorter arm action. Mechanics flowed well together with a nice leg kick and creates good separation at hand break. His fastball was 65-66 mph and keep it in the zone for strikes at the knees often. Developing changeup was 60-62 mph. Heck’s curveball had higher tilt to it at 51-54 mph. Continuing to add size and strength will only benefit this prospect’s future. A righty singer that starts in a taller setup. Actions are smooth and quiet prior to launch. Swing is compact with a downhill plane to contact. Found the barrel often in BP, consistently producing line drives to the middle of the field. Created natural ball flight when he stayed inside the baseball but showed a tendency to pull off at times. Strength is an above average tool for class with bat speed looking to be on its way. In the infield he has a second baseman look to him. Plays under control with soft hands through fielding. Moves well laterally with the ability to throw form multiple slots on the run. A solid defender in general with impressive ball skills for class. In the outfield he has a corner look to him. Feet are aggressive to and through fielding with obvious confidence in his glove. Arm strength will be area for improvement out there. Behind the dish he brings above average athleticism to the spot. Feet are quick and arm action fits the position. Feet are sound and transfer is clean. Look to see easy improvements in pop time as arm strength comes along with maturity.

Pop Times: 2.25-2.38
Catcher Velocity: 65
Infield Velocity: 69
Outfield Velocity: 71
Exit Velocity: 80
