6/15/21

Physical: Projectable, athletic 6-foot-3, 185lb frame with some length to the movements. 

Pitching: LHP - Started tall with the feet together off the far right corner of the mound; good pace up to a high stack position and down the slope with repeatability in the mechanics. Smooth operator gaining momentum towards the target and released from a fluid H ¾ slot for strikes into the zone. The FB ranged from 77-79, T80 mph showing adequate carry (16+ inches IVB via Trackman) and added a two-plane 62-65 mph CB with more sweep than depth. Mixed a 71-73 mph CH that played with killed spin at a 100% zone rate and ability to land in any count.

Physical: Lean and projectable 6-foot-3, 160-pound frame. 7.76 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: Tall, slightly open stance with a minor bend in the knees as the hands showed rhythm at the shoulder in the setup. Utilized a leg-hang stride to initiate a flat barrel path into the hitting zone. Displayed the ability to turn the barrel early matching plane and getting lift after contact, generated natural backspin to the pull-side gap when contacting the baseball out in front of the plate. Showcased an adjustable lower half with a relatively high posture throughout the swing, long levers dealt damage when getting through towards extension. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 83 mph according to Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The outfielder featured adequate footwork arriving to the spot on time with a soft glove hand at the fielding window, fielded off of the middle/right side of his body on the approach, accurate high ¾ slot on throws towards the plate. OF - 75 mph

Pitching: LHP - Stretch only with a medium leg lift and slight crossfire upon footstrike. Worked the FB into the zone at 74-78 mph with an upwards of 2063 spin per Trackman Baseball, mixed in a slow breaking 59-62 mph CB with 1/7 tilt and 2150 max rpms.


2/23/20

6-foot, 160-pound primary pitcher sat 76-78 from a 3/4 arm slot with little movement on his fastball. Curveball showed some biting 12/6 action at 62-64 especially out of the stretch. Also showed a straight changeup at 72-74. The right-handed hitter starts from slightly open stance and initiates his swing with a toe-tap stride. Displayed balance throughout with a direct swing path. Registered a bat exit velocity of 78 mph and ran a 7.44 60-yard dash. Played through the baseball consistently in the outfield with accurate 78 mph arm strength.
