2/04/18

5-foot-10, 160 pound infield prospect showed good hands defensively but can improve on coming through the backhands rather than letting them come to him. His feet moved fine getting to the ball efficiently and he can still improve that by being more aggressive and attacking the ball. His throwing velocity was 76 mph and accurate across the diamond to first base. He swings it from the left side with an uphill bat path that made solid contact squaring up the ball often throughout his round. He creates separation in his load and provides good output from his lower half. Recorded an exit velocity of 80 mph. Simmer showed good tools today for his age which are expected to develop more over the next couple years.

7/12/17

A left-handed bat that starts in a balanced setup. Barrel gets vertical during his leg kick load. Swing is fluid and efficient. Path is level with some natural loft. Showed feel for the barrel and the ability to use all fields. Should grow into a middle of the lineup guy as he matures physically. Defensively, his footwork is clean. Plays with a low center of gravity out front. Funnels the ball into his waist while transitioning into release. Transfers smoothly to his ear. Releases the ball from a 3/4 slot with developing arm speed.

60-yard dash: 7.45
Infield Velocity: 72
Exit Velocity: 82

6/20/17

A left-handed hitter that starts in an athletic setup. Hands move back, while staying fluid during his stride. Swing is efficient and any added strength with maturity should translate to added juice. Bat speed is developing and he showed feel for the barrel. Solid, young hitter. In the outfield he showed quick, athletic footwork getting to the ball. Plays through the baseball with confidence. Arm action is shorter and he does a nice job finishing his throws. Displayed above average ball skills. In the middle infield he plays under control approaching the baseball. Fields the baseball deep in the middle of his body on plays in his funnel. Moves light on his feet with a quick first step laterally. Stays athletic on the move and can throws from multiple arm angles. Profiles more in the infield at this stage.

Home to First: 4.26
Infield Velocity: 67
Outfield Velocity: 73
Exit Velocity: 84

6/28/16

5-foot-8, 140-pound prospect. Ran a 7.51 60-yard dash. At the plate he uses a bat tip/leg kick combo to load before getting through the zone on a level path. Has a very quick bat with extension through contact. Produced consistent line drives in batting practice and reached a top exit velocity of 80 mph. In the outfield he showed confidence in his glove and threw to home plate with 72 mph arm strength. Will need to continue to develop his footwork as he matures physically.
