2/09/20

2/9/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: Showed somewhat of a ‘drop and drive’ type of delivery from a ¾ arm slot.
Fastball: Fastball was 77-80 mph and showed above average life through the zone with some ‘ride.’
Fastball Spin Rate: 2120-2190
Curveball: Breaking ball was 64-66 mph with a slurvey shape and decent bite.
Curveball Spin Rate: 2010-2110
Changeup: Changeup was 68-71 mph.
Pitchability: Decent feel for his three pitch mix. Fastball showed some life. Could add velocity to his fastball with a more dynamic load and weight shift at the beginning of his delivery.

7/01/19

Throw: High-¾ righty with solid strength and present accuracy.
Defensive Projection: 3B.

 

Body Type:  6-foot-2, 185-pound physical frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Athletic movements on the bump. Average tempo delivery with regular effort. Arm works well through a ¾ arm slot. Delivery is fluent and repeatable. Mixes in a slide step out of the stretch.

Curveball: 67-69 mph. 11-5 shape offering shows tight spin and sharp break.

2/10/19

Body Type: 6-foot-2, 183 pounds. Physical build.
Swing Mechanics: Has a wide based stance that swings with a level bat path. Gets out front at times but also showed ability to get extended through the ball.

Hit: Stroked several hard balls with loud contact in his round. Showed smooth barrel action pull-side.

Power: 82 mph exit velocity. Plenty of pop in his bat for class.

Offensive Projection: Middle of the order, run producer.

Run:  7.46
Field: Fielding actions are developing in smoothness displaying good hands. Showed lateral mobility well with his footwork too.

Throw: 75 mph across the diamond showing off arm strength and accuracy.
Defensive Projection: Third baseman.

 

2/10/19 Pitching

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws with a ¾ arm slot and has an even tempo to his motion with rhythm. Creates nice flow with his rocker style motion from the windup. Flashed an arm with strength for his class.

Fastball: 75-77 mph. Late arm-side run to it as it enters the hitting zone.

Curveball: 65-67 mph. Nice breaker starting that often started high and finished around the zone with a 10-4 tilt.

Changeup: 67-68 mph. Signs of tumble life late, but grip is developing as command can improve for more consistency. Did maintain it low.

Pitchability: Was more accurate and effective with pitches out of the stretch. Lower half engagement will improve and allow for better extension down the mound to add some velocity.
Role:  Starter
