7/2/18
A good athlete with a skill set that plays at the next level. Looked the part of both sides of the baseball. Line drive hitter at the plate with an intent driven stroke. More physical than the last time we saw him. Both strength and batspeed play as above average tools. Drove the ball around the yard in BP, displaying the ability to generate backspin. A rangy defender in the infield with an above average skill set across the board. Feet work well and ball skills are there. Arm plays on either side of the diamond. Small school prospect college coaches should take a look at.
60-yard dash: 6.88
Infield Velocity: 79
Exit Velocity: 87

A righty swinger that starts in a balanced setup. Hands stay loose and fluid during leg kick timing trigger. Actions are athletic in the box. Level, loose swing with some barrel authority through contact. Line drive type in general with gap abilities. In the infield he plays fast and can create angles. Mechanically sound in general. Hands work well showing above average ball skills and a smooth transfer. Solid defender who profiles at second base at the next level. Two-way prospect. On the bump the right-hander has an athletic delivery with fluid tempo. Works quickly and efficiently, getting down the mound with good direction. Arm moves through a high ¾ slot and fastball comes out with low effort at 71-74 mph. Spins a tight 11/5 shaped breaking ball with feel. The pitch acted as the outpitch at 59-61 mph.
Home to 1st: 4.47
Infield Velocity: 74
Exit Velocity: 84

6-foot-1, 165-pound prospect with thin, athletic frame. Defensively, he shows some athleticism in his feet, but has a tendency to field the ball flat footed. Throws with long arm action through high ¾ slot. Has some length to his transfer. Threw with top velocity of 75 mph across the infield. An aggressive swinger that drove the ball with authority to his pull side in batting practice. Incorporates a toe turn and barrel tip to his loading sequence. Weight tends to stay on back leg causing an uphill path. Would like to see more weight transfer into contact to level out his path and open up the whole field. On the mound, the right handed pitcher displays a projectable pitchers body with his tall, lean frame. Throws with short arm action through a ¾ slot. Commands his fastball that sits between 73-76 mph. Breaking ball displays some sharpness in break as it ranges 63-64 mph. Also mixes in a 68 mph changeup thrown with near fastball arm speed.

60 Yard Dash: 7.2
Position Velocity: 75
Exit Velocity: 82

5-foot-11, 140-pound small build. Good repeatable delivery that appears to be easy effort. Good direction to the plate. Throws from a high ¾ slot with average arm speed. Fastball sat 67-71 mph. Curveball sat 58-62 mph. At the plate he starts with a wider setup before creating energy into contact through a leg kick and aggressive stride. Bat starts vertical and moves back during his stride forward before firing the barrel through the zone. Registered a top exit velocity of 81 mph and ran a 4.68 from home to first. Has quick feet in the infield with confidence in his glove. Would like to see him play through the ball more consistently.

1/31/16
5-foot-9, 130-pound thing, wiry frame. At the plate the righty starts in a balanced stance with his bat vertical. Uses litter load with his lower half and relies on energy and weight transfer for power. Takes his hands back as he strides forward to remain balanced. Takes a nice, level path to the ball and was able to reach a top exit velocity of 72 off the tee. Ran a 4.47 from home to first. In the infield he used quick, athletic footwork and was able to field the ball out in front of his body. Using clean arm action through a 3/4 slot he threw with 71 mph arm strength across the diamond.
