Offensive Projection: Multiple Roles.
Run: 4.36 down the line.
Field: On the defensive side of the ball he plays with athleticism to his actions. Moves well out there, timing feet well and changing direction with ease. Very solid defender with a well above average skill set across the board for class.
Throw: Enough arm for all three skill spots.
Defensive Projection: Multiple positions.

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 160-pound athletic frame.

Throw: Ball jumps and he should see more strength down the road.
Defensive Projection: Multiple Spots.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Athletic movement patterns on the mound. Arm works well and is on time. Compact arm action with above average arm speed.
Fastball: 82-83 mph with the heater. Above average spin rate guy at 2000-2200 rpms. Fastball will show regular cutting action.

2/14/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 155 pounds. Lean, strong athlete.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Releases out of a ¾ arm slot with quicker arm action that comes through well. Produces an upbeat tempo in his delivery motion showing rhythm and overall nice mechanics for his class.
Fastball: 79-80 mph. Held velocity at 79-80 mph for the majority of his outing. Ball runs from his arm-side nicely and locates it well.
Curveball: 69-72 mph. Breaker has slower rotation but effective and command is there.
Knuckleball: 64-67 mph. Uses this pitch instead of a changeup. Working on grip and has average command. More effective with curveball for an off-speed as he continues to improve this pitch.   
Pitchability: Showed a strong arm from the mound and lived in the zone for for his fastball and curveball often. Young, projectable athlete that has years to continue his progression at this game.
Role: TBD.

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 155 pounds. Lean, strong athlete.
Swing Mechanics: Tall, open setup. Very efficient loading sequence, incorporating a back load to hands during short stride for timing.
Hit: Loose, whippy swing that stays inside the baseball well. Early barrel acceleration leads to more authority through contact than frame/exit velocity would suggest. Ball really comes off well and he projects for more pop as he adds strength to frame. Very solid performance.
Power: 84 mph exit velocity. Present Gap Abilities.
Offensive Projection: Multiple Roles.
Run: 4.94 H-1st.
Field: Solid defender in the infield. Plays with fluid actions and above average ball skills. Functionally athletic kid who moves well out there.
Throw: 76 mph arm strength across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: All three skill spots.

2/16/18

A righty swinger that stars in an open setup. Hands show a slight back load during his smooth leg lift timing mechanism. Swing is compact and barrel travels on a level path to contact. A high contact guy with an efficient stroke. With his efficiency expect any added strength to easily translate to more pop. In the infield he showed quickness to his feet, attacking the baseball off the bat. Ball skills and lateral mobility are above average for class allowing him to make plays in and out of his funnel. Solid defender who’s future destination will likely be determined on how arm progresses.  Two-way prospect. On the mound the right-hander has a rhythmic delivery that doesn’t require a ton of effort. Works through a high-¾ slot with developing speed and strength to arm. Fastball stays mostly true through the zone, sitting 71-73 mph. Expect more velocity as physical maturation takes its course. Breaking ball has more spin than break at this stage coming in at 64-65 mph. Also tosses a knuckleball that showed some dance through the zone at 61-62 mph.

Infield Velocity: 70
Exit Velocity: 79
