Two-way prospect. At the plate he gets things going with a leg kick timing trigger. Simple hands through load into a slightly downhill launch. Gap pop with more pull side tendencies. In the infield he moves well with the ability to create angles and maintain rhythm. Ball skills are average to slightly above average for class. Likely ends up at third base in college. Although he has two-way potential at the right level the higher ceiling is on the mound. Actions are athletic on the bump. Arm is clean with above average arm speed. Ball comes out well, running it up to 83 mph on this day. We’ve seen him higher in the past. Breaking ball has swing and miss potential when in the zone.

6-foot-1, 185-pound. Right-handed pitching prospect with a strong bill. Uses a quick tempo delivery with a drop and drive lower half. Fastball works downhill out of a 3/4 slot at 78 to 83 mph. The curve ball has gradual break and 11 to 5 shape at 65 to 69 mph. Also offers a straight change up at 68 to 71 mph for strikes.

We saw Bell last year as he was heading into his sophomore season at 79-80 mph but the arm really worked and delivery was effortless. Bell spent most of 2017 around that same velocity but it was just a matter of time before physical maturation took its course and he took the next jump. The right-hander showed up to the IVL scout day noticeably filled out and with more electricity to his arm,  tossing his second fastball of the day at 87 mph. Throughout his outing he sat 84-87 mph with a much firmer, sharper breaking ball. His status looks to have made the jump from follow to scholarship level prospect. Although Bell has a high ceiling off the mound it wouldn’t be out of the question to consider him a two-way prospect at the right level. Hands work well in the infield with enough arm for the left side. At the plate he showed gap abilities with an above average strength/bat speed combination.

A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced setup. Lower half is simple using a toe turn load. Hands stay in a strong position until swing decision. Path is level with some quickness to his bat. Contact type guy that showed feel for the barrel. Flashed more juice to his pull side. A smooth middle infielder with athleticism to his actions. Moves well laterally and showed above average glove skills. Arm is clean and has enough arm strength to stay on the left side of the infield. On the mound the right-hander continues to impress. Very mechanically efficient with clean arm action. Brings athleticism and pitchability to the bump. Just a matter of time before velocity jumps. Currently sits 77-82 mph with the fastball that showed run at times. Complements his fastball with his 11/5 breaking ball. Pitch has depth and some sharpness to it at 69-71 mph.

On the mound the right-hander brings an athletic presence to the mound. Arm action is clean with some arm speed, while working through a high-¾ slot. Spun a heavy dose of breaking balls, showing excellent feel for the pitch. The offering works on an 11/5 plane with gradual break 65-68 mph. Setup the pitch with his fastball that was also consistently in the zone at 77-79 mph with run. Also flashed a change-up near fastball arm speed at 74-75 mph.

A top of the lineup guy with some juice. Starts with his barrel vertical prior to his toe turn load. Swing is compact and efficient. Bat has some quickness to it with noticeable barrel whip through the zone. Routinely produced line drives to both sides of the field in batting practice, flashing the ability to drive the ball into the gap. Defensively, he looked comfortable in the middle infield. Moves light on his feet and does a nice job staying low as he field through the baseball. Glove skills are above average for his age. Arm strength will need to improve to play shortstop at the next level. On the mound, he is lanky type prospect that still has plenty of physical maturation to come. In many ways, he reminds me of 2018 RHP Jackson Miller. He throws an easy 79-80 mph fastball with long, loose arm action from a high ¾ slot. This compares to 72-75 mph when we saw him seven months ago. His delivery is repeatable and efficient. His breaking ball has 11/5 shape at 62-64 mph. Once he learns to throw it with faster arm speed, it will become an even more effective pitch. He also mixed in a 64-67 mph changeup that showed fade to the arm side.

On the bump, the thin right handed pitcher offers some good tempo to his delivery. Works through a high ¾ slot with some loose arm action. Velocity should continue to gain as he continues to develop physically. Fastball consistently sat between 72-75 mph with some occasional arm-side movement. His breaking ball features some sharp 12/6 tilt while sitting between 60-64 mph. Also mixes in a 53-54 mph changeup. A right-handed hitter that uses a simple approach to consistently find the barrel. Starting with the bat vertical he uses a short stride, while keeping his hands simple before taking a level path to the ball. Would benefit from more weight transfer into contact. Reached a top exit velocity of 79 mph. Behind the plate he showed some quickness to his feet with good direction towards second.
