7/06/20

Scouting Notes: Interesting follow. Good mover that is one time with some athleticism in there. Arm works. Up to 85mph and he should continue to add velocity as he matures. Fastball was live when in the zone. Also spun a playable breaking ball on an 11/5 plane.
Fastball: 84-85mph.
Fastball Spin Rate: 1995-2060
Breaking Ball: 66-67mph.
Breaking Ball Spin Rate: 1691-1830

2/17/20

2/17/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: Athletic consistent fluid delivery with a high leg kick throwing out of the high ¾ arm slot. Gets out over his front foot showing plus mechanics.
Fastball: Heavy fastball that stays true through the zone with some arm side run at 85mph.
Curveball: Plus offering with a sharp 11/5 break. Keeps mechanics the same and will make the hitters miss. 68mph.
Changeup: Keeps arm speed the same, shows arm side fade while living low in the zone. 73mph.

2/17/20 Position Player
Hit: Starts out in a balanced setup. Hands are quiet through simple loading sequence. Relatively level bat path with some natural loft.
Power: Line drive pop. Frame suggests more juice to come.
Offensive Projection: Middle of the lineup ceiling.
Field: Short and simple defensively. Lateral movement skills will keep him at the corner at the next level.
Throw: Comes out of a high ¾ arm slot clean. Solid arm strength across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: Corner infield.

7/10/19

Body Type: 6-foot, 160-pound prospect.
Swing Mechanics: Righty with a simple yet fluid load.
Hit: Balanced launch with an uphill path to contact. Smooth swinger that generates easy juice. Backspins the ball to the middle of the field. Solid round.
Power: Line drive guy with flashes of gap abilities. 81.8 mph off the bat in BP.
Offensive Projection: Middle of the lineup upside.
Field:  Smooth actions in the infield with good rhythm throughout. Ball skills are on par for his class.
Throw:  Good arm strength with a 3/4 arm slot.  Loose arm that works.
Defensive Projection:  Corner infield.

 

Body Type: 6-foot, 160-pound prospect.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Delivery is fluid, works in good direction. Uses a long arm action working out of a ¾ slot with minimal effort.

Fastball: Fastball has plus run to the arm side. Sat 74-77 mph with more velocity to come. 

Curveball: Curveball has a big 11/5 shape with developing depth at 54-55 mph.

Slider: At 58-59 mph the slider has a tighter short 11/5 break that is flashes some sharpness.

Changeup: Changeup has consistent run to the arm side at 56-57 mph.

Pitchability: Threw strikes, good feel for both breaking balls. Needs to improve arm speed on the changeup. 

2/17/19

2/17/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 160 pounds. Athletic frame with room to add.

Swing Mechanics: Upright, open stance form this righty. Shifts weight forward as he makes contact from his uphill bat path.

Hit: Stayed middle of the field and pull-side as he made solid contact to those areas.

Power: 74 mph exit velocity. Shows nice velocity for a ‘22 and more obviously to come as he fills out.

Offensive Projection: TBD for now.

Run: 8.86 seconds 60-yard.
Field: Movements defensively flowed very well with his feet. Glove showed soft hands and ability to work through the ball. Plus actions for a ‘22.

Throw: 78 mph across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: Third base.

 

2/17/19 Pitching

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 160 pound thin frame with room to add.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Arm action is loose and on time at stride foot contact. Throws from a tall back leg and lands slightly across body.

Fastball: 76-78 mph. Live through zone. Stayed mostly straight.

Curveball: 63-65 mph. 12-6 shape that showed late bite at times. In and out of zone.

Changeup: 64-66 mph. Showed some arm side fade. Consistently in the zone.

Pitchability: Pounded zone with the fastball & change-up, but was in and out of the zone with curveball. Curveball showed signs of being a swing and miss pitch in the future.

Additional Comments: Preston has a great chance to increase velocity with increased strength and improved lower half mechanics. Increased velocity and development of the breaking ball should make him a good follow in the ‘22 class.
