8/08/22

Lawson continues to exceed expectations as the summer is wrapping up. An athletic 6-foot-3, left handed bat that has one of the better looking swings in the nation. Slight toe-tap load, keeps the hands back and generates power at ease. Quality approach to hitting which translates into game, hitting multiple home runs on the first day of the Summer Games. Clean footwork at shortstop, assisted on multiple double play balls. He had an impressive Future Games performance down in Atlanta, and is continuing to impress college coaches and scouts up north.

7/31/22

Lawson looked the part of what we have come to expect from Canadian prospects: long and athletic with a left-handed stick that should produce plenty of power in coming years. The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder has a frame that should carry even more imposing strength in the coming years, and while he likely shifts off of the shortstop position that he played all week, the bat will more than carry his prospect status from third base.

Starting with the hands held high in Yastrzemskian fashion, the weight rocks back with a toe-tap, allowing for the hands to freely move into a power position. From there, he drives the barrel flat through the zone, staying behind the ball and delivering heavy barrels with each swing. Lawson peppered the gaps in his batting practice sessions exhibiting easy lag in the zone, but his biggest moments came during game play. Nearly every ball that he put in play registered north of 90 mph in exit velocity including one out that nearly tore through the pitcher. More than a single plane grooved swing, the young Canadian demonstrated an innate ability to move the barrel around the zone while maintaining balance and adjusting.

There was a professional look to each at-bat, and though he was surrounded by a plethora of talented prospects (Team Canada was LOADED), Lawson was the one who stood out most. With the hit/power tools combining as the best at the PBR Future Games, look for Lawson to gain the favor of nearly every college program in the country, and also to immediately find his way onto follow lists of many MLB teams covering Canadian prospects.

5/20/22

On Friday night Lawson put together the best performance we’ve seen this year from a 2024 positional player. After picking up three hits in league play the previous night, Lawson went 3-for-3 with a double to the backside gap and then finished up his night with a home run to CF. The projectable 6-foot-3, 185-pound left-handed hitter has proven the bat plays and he continues to show well on the left side on the diamond. Expect this to be the summer Lawson’s name jumps onto the national scene.

5/12/22

Although Lawson’s game didn’t jump out at Best of the West against older competition, he looked the part on this night as he was back with his 16U age group. 6-foot-3, 185-pound middle infielder with smooth actions who moves well side to side with arm strength. Profiles on the left side of the diamond. The glove is ahead of the bat right now but he has a good approach from the left side and works up the middle. There’s still lots of room and time to add strength in his offensive game which would make for an intriguing profile. A top 2024 prospect in Ontario on the dirt.
