6/26/19

Swing Mechanics: Right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Simpel, efficient load that leads to a balanced launch.
Hit: Level stroke with a bit more strength than speed presently. Ball comes off well when squared. Ran into a few in BP, showing authority to pull side.
Power: Gap abilities.
Offensive Projection: Middle of lineup.
Field: Frame/skill set play at first base. Moves off the bag with feel. Well versed at the position with an above average skills set across the board.
Throw: Compact arm with present accuracy and average strength.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Works exclusively from the stretch. Uptempo pace to a delivery that requires regular effort. High-3/4 right-hander with above average strength/speed to his arm.

Fastball: 72-76 mph. Heavy pitch that is mostly true through the zone. Worked both sides of the plate with the offering.

Curveball: 64-65 mph. Spins an 11/5 shaped breaking ball with more depth than action. Also showed the ability to locate the pitch in the zone consistently. Pitch acted as a put-away offering.

Pitchability: Strike thrower that was able to induce weaker contact for the most part.
