The 2024 infielder had a big week both at the plate and in the field that turned some heads in the stands.  On the workout day Brooks ran a 7.19 60 to go along with his 88 mph radar gun reading across the diamond.  The games portion is where Brooks really shined picking up 4 hits in 9 at bats and made plays all over the field.  Brooks also worked on the mound getting the fastball up to 88 mph with a quick arm to complement a low 70’s breaking ball and 76-77 mph change up.  The high energy player from Tuttle showed his all-around versatility being able to play multiple positions at a high level, showed the ability to handle some of the best pitching in the country at the plate, and went on the mound and showed his impressive arm strength making him an interesting and legitimate two-way prospect.

Consistent accuracy to the bag, used an-over-the-top slot with a quick arm action. Clocked a 60 time of 7.66 at the event. Advanced on the mound, where he showed quick arm speed, also used a consistent arm action and an over-the-top arm angle. Feel type pitcher who shows easy effort. Has athletic balance point and even shoulders. Lands square with a recoil finish. Threw his fastball 82-85 mph and topped out at 85 mph; had a consistent command that shows heavy movement.

7/16/19

A developing 5-foot-6, 130-pound frame with athleticism and plenty of room to fill in as he matures. Offensively, the right-handed hitter starts in an athletic, square base with rhythm in his hands set high by his ear.

Some length to swing, but consistently barreled up balls generating line-drives to all fields during BP. 76 mph exit velocity. 8.21 60-yard dash. In the infield, showed confident, clean actions with soft hands and good footwork. Throws from a high-¾ arm slot yielding accurate throws at 76 mph.
