6/13/21

Physical: Lean/athletic 5-foot-11, 160lb frame with room to continue filling out as he matures. 6.88 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Started from a wide, slightly open stance with the hands showing some rhythm above the shoulder. Utilized a short lift and replace stride in order to initiate the bat head through a flat path into the hitting zone. Extended well through the baseball with a middle of the field approach during his batting practice round. Hit into a stiff front side yielding a 33% line drive rate per Trackman Baseball. Recorded an 86 mph bat-exit velocity and should see that number continue rising as he holds more strength. Top of the order skillset from the right side. 

Defensively: The shortstop featured clean, compact actions with range in either direction, fielded out in front gaining downhill momentum towards the target. Easy exchange and a repeatable, accurate high ¾ slot on the release (81 mph arm). 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the middle/left side of the rubber with consistent pace. Shallow leg lift with hip-coil, getting down the mound fluidly and releasing from a hitchy/short ¾-slot on the front side. Very effective outing missing barrels with an 80-81 mph FB flashing advanced carry to the plate (20+ inches average IVB). Countered with a short 70-73 mph SL that tunneled out of the same slot grabbing misses in the box. Later added a 70-72 mph CH with developing action/sell.


10/12/20

Physical: Lean / athletic 5-foot-11, 160-pound frame with feel for his body in all facets of the game; room to add strength as he matures. 6.97 runner in the 60-yard dash showing off his solid straight line footspeed. Offensively: RHH. Balanced, even setup with the hands showing slight rhythm at the shoulder in the stance. Utilized a short and controlled lift and replace stride in order to initiate the hands through a flat barrel path and into the hitting zone. Athleticism featured in the lower half with adjustability to it allowing him to be on time regardless of quadrant thrown into. Hit into a stiff front side and worked the hands through a short A to B path in the box, quality approach using mostly the middle of the field during batting practice. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 88 mph per Trackman Baseball, could get negative at times on the attack angle creating ground ball contact (60% rate during his round), but also flashed a 30% line drive rate using mostly the LCF gap with hard contact. Defensively: The shortstop featured adequate footwork during defensive evaluations arriving to the baseball on time with active footwork, rangy actions to the glove hand side. Showed off moderate pace on throws across the diamond and made the play on the run with relative ease from a multitude of arm angles. Accurate throws across the diamond out of a repeatable, rhythmic, high ¾ slot. INF - 77 mph Pitching: RHP - Started from the left side of the rubber with a short side rocker step into a medium leg lift with minor hip coil. Control throughout the delivery, drove out directionally through a strong backside leg, landed athletically and got over the front side at release through a high ¾ slot. FB ranged from 78-81 T82 mph with high spin to it (2376 rpms per Trackman Baseball) making it play quicker for hitters in the box. Kind of lulls you to sleep in the delivery then the ball jumps on you, mixed in a solid 65-68 mph breaker showing off 11/5 shape and 1831 spin while registering a 25% in zone rate. Countered with a low spin 64-66 mph CH with command in the zone giving him three quality offerings overall.
