5/29/18
A physically advanced frame with strength for his age at 5-foot-11, 160-pounds. Offensively, the left-handed hitter bats from an upright and back leg heavy set-up with some rhythm throughout. Uses almost no stride and flat path through extension. In BP, shows a pull approach with pop and strength, some barrel control, 77 mph exit velo. Runs a 7.45 60. Defensively, charges the ball very well in the outfield, shows good hands, and an athletic crow hop. Throws with a full and clean arm action coming through a ¾ slot, 77 mph with accuracy. On the mound, works from an average tempo delivery with a full and fluid arm action coming through a ¾ slot. Fastball sits 75-78 with slight arm side run. Changeup has late fade at 65-66 mph, mostly strikes. Curveball is still developing at 62-63 mph. 

9-9-18
A physically advanced 6-foot, 170-pound frame with some strength. On the mound, the left-hander works from an average tempo delivery with a high leg kick before striding way down the mound. Arm action is long, fluid, and clean in the back before coming through a high-¾ slot. Fastball sits 75-78 mph flashing run when down in the zone. Changeup sits 67-68 with occasional cut, mostly strikes. Curveball is developing, shows occasional 1/7 shape and slight depth at 59-60 mph. In the game, Welch struggled with command early but found the zone late and was able to retire the last three batters he faced.
