2/17/19

Body Type: 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect.
Swing Mechanics: Right-handed hitter that starts in a tall setup. Gets lower half going with a fluid leg lift as barrel moves to a vertical launch.
Hit: whippy/loose, balanced nat tools both above average, stays inside well, line drives middle away, more physical than we’ve seen in passed.
Whippy swing with balanced natural tools. Both strength and speed to hands are above average for class. Fights to stay inside the baseball, producing regular line drives to middle/opposite field. Much more physical round than we’ve seen in past.
Power: 88 mph exit velocity. Gap pop.
Offensive Projection: Multiple Roles.
Run: 7.37 60-yard dash.
Field: An infielder that really looks the part out there. Feet work well, allowing him to maintain rhythm throughout sequence. Shows a ton of feel for his hands making it look easy in/out of his funnel. Talented defender who gets better each time we see him.
Throw: Loose arm with more strength than we’ve seen in past and still has more left.
Defensive Projection: All three skill spots.
Additional Comments: Very well-rounded skill set with more burst athletically each time we see him. A guy you’d expect stock to continue rising.

Body Type: 5-foot-11, 180-pound athletic frame. 
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Athletic delivery with a clean arm. Fluid actions and delivery doesn’t require much effort. 
Fastball: 81-82 mph,  Mostly true through the zone. Definitely a candidate for more velocity down the road. 
Curveball: 66-67 mph, 11/5 shaped bender with some depth to it. More than playable offering. 
Changeup: 71-73 mph,  Above average offering. Maintains arm speed on the pitch that has quality fade to it. 
Pitchability: Filled it up. 
Additional Comments: Will keep getting better as he matures physically. Very clean arm with feel for the zone. Definite follow with two-way potential.

7/24/18

A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Simple load into a balance launch. Downhill path through the zone inside a compact stroke. Downhill path can cause inconsistencies in ball flight at times. Line drive guy in general that generates most natural ball flight to oppo gap. Solid defender up the middle of the infield. Easy, athletic actions with above average ball skills for class. Very smooth out there, making it look easy. True middle skill set.

6/06/18

A righty swinger that starts in a balanced setup. Load is fluid and efficient. Launches from a balanced position and takes a slightly downhill path to contact. Very efficient swing with more pop on the way as he twitches up. Actions are fluid and athletic in the infield. Can create angles and maintain rhythm. Ball skills are well ahead of the curve for class as well.

60-yard dash: 7.51
Infield Velocity: 76
Exit Velocity: 82

2/11/18

A young, talented prospect who had the top performance actions wise in the infield. Shows feel for the shortstop position with advanced ball skills for class. Feet work well in his funnel and on the move. Armsey has a real chance to stay at the position if lateral mobility comes a long with maturity. At the plate he swings it from the right side, starting in a balanced setup. Shows a slight back load during his short stride forward. Loading sequence is simple yet efficient. Barrel travels on a downhill path to contact with above average strength/speed to his hands. Line drive swing in general that has a chance for some power as he matures and adds loft to path. Also impressed off the bump. Arm works well with present strength/armspeed. Ball comes out well with little effort. Sits 76-77 mph with much more to come. Tends to slow arm a bit on the 11/5 shaped breaking ball that comes in at 60-63 mph. The pitch already shows big action and should develop sharpness/depth as spin rate increases. Changeup plays as a well above average offering, displaying late arm side action and sink. Impressive feel for class, filling up the zone with all three offerings.

60-yard dash: 7.75
Infield Velocity: 72
Exit Velocity: 80

1/21/18

Put together the top performance position player wise of the event. Armsey is a run producer type bat with an efficient swing that produces natural backspin to the gaps. The type of bat that projects to hit for average as well as do damage. In the infield possesses an advanced skill set for his class. Actions are fluid, maintaining rhythm on the move and showing middle infielder ball skills. Very early in his development but as of now he looks to be on track to stay at shortstop. A definite prospect to follow in the 2021 class.

6/28/17

A right-handed bat that starts in a tall setup. Uses a smooth back load during his controlled stride. Launches from a balanced position and takes a level path to the baseball. Bat has some whip to it with developing bat speed. Swing is efficient and expect much more pop to come with maturity. In the infield he plays under control and has fluidity to his actions. Reads the ball well off the bat and has a quick first step. Glove skills are above average. Solid defender all-around. On the bump he has a very fluent and effortless motion to the plate. He has a longer arm action and throws from a high ¾ slot. His fastball stays downhill with some run back in on right handed hitters. The changeup had similar arm speed to the fastball and fell off the table. His curveball appeared to be his out pitch, deceiving hitters with a 11-5 trajectory.

1/29/17

5-foot-9, 145-pound projectable frame. The young right-hander shows looseness to his arm and rhythm in the delivery. He creates some deception with a high glove side. Works through a ¾ slot with a long arm action. His fastball sat 71-74 mph with good arm side run. The changeup was thrown with good arm speed. The pitch has a lot of sink and sat 64-65 mph. His curveball shows some depth on an 11/5 tilt. That pitch sat 60-63 mph. An aggressive swinger from the right side. Loading sequence creates balance and separation. Bat has some quickness to it on a downhill path. Contact type guy at this stage. Has a tendency to get to front side prior to swing decision. Controlling his forward movement would lead to more consistent hard contact. A smooth infielder with mechanically sound footwork. Glove skills are above average. From a high ¾ slot he threw across the infield with 71 mph arm strength. Defensively, he shows good actions for his age. Starts in an athletic position. Tendency to field the ball flat footed, but gets into his transfer quickly. Would like to see him creates more fluidity in his actions. Throws from a ¾ to high ¾ slot with short arm action. Top velocity of 71 mph across the infield.
