Notes

Comments

2/12/22

Physical: 5-foot-10, 175 pounds; Athletic, lean build. 7.51 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH. Even setup, with feet shoulder width apart; bat positioned at a 45 degree angle. Drops hands on the way back with an up and down stride for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing an average effort from the legs. Showed a moderate swing path with a late one hand finish.  More line drives than flyballs and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 86 MPH via Trackman.

Defensively: Starts with a low to the ground setup; uses prep hop while showing active feet. Hands work through the ball with a clean transfer. Moderate arm circle from a high 3/4 arm slot.  INF - 81 MPH. 

Pitching: Uses a glove side setup while using a side step. Belt high leg drive with shoulders above the hips. Has a moderate stride landing inline with the plate. Moderate arm swing while showing some scap load; high 3/4 slot. Square to the plate with finish. FB: Peak velo of 79 MPH, while sitting 78-79 MPH; straight action.  SL: 72-73 MPH; tilting break. CH: 72-74 MPH; fading action.  Good finishing arm speed through the ball. Gets downhill nicely.

7/28/21

Physical: Strong, durable 5-foot-10, 175lb frame with a high-waist. 7.83 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Slightly crouched, even stance with the hands starting at a 45 at the shoulder. Utilized a leg-hang stride, reaching out to the pitcher, as the hands initiated through a quick, twitchy flat path into the hitting zone. Exploded after footstrike with high-intent back-hip rotation, allowing for hard pull-side contact during his round. Stayed low to the ground and connected in the swing, finishing high towards the backside shoulder on the finish. Produced a T84 mph bat-exit velocity on a 39% line drive rate (via Trackman) and saw his best swing travel 310 feet (doubles power). 

Defensively: The third baseman featured a hop in the “prep step” chopping the feet from right to left and working in-line to the target. Bent at the waist from a medium/high posture and shuffled twice with a glove-tap before releasing from H ¾ slot (accurate, 80 mph, carry). Made the play on the run seamlessly. 

Pitching: RHP - Started slightly-offset from the glove-side of the rubber. Utilized a medium leg-lift with adequate pace down the slope; stayed higher in the posture, creating some downhill tilt in the shoulders on its way to the plate. Higher H ¾ slot and finished into a firm front-side, as the FB registered from 76-78 mph on this date. Mixed a deceptive 70-73 mph CB with good intent and late, lateral shape across the plate (5 inches HM).


6/22/21

Physical: 5-foot-10, 165 pounds; Broad shouldered, proportional build. 7.66 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH. Even setup, with feet just outside his shoulders; bat positioned at a 45 degree angle. Loads straight back with an up and down stride for timing. Drifts into contact while showing an average effort from the legs. Showed a slight lift to the ball with a one-handed finish.  More groundballs than line drives and flyballs with a peak exit velocity of 79 MPH via Trackman.

Defensively: Starts with a compact setup; uses prep hop while quick first step. Hands are soft while standing up during transfer. Moderate arm circle  from a standard 3/4 arm slot.   INF - 79 MPH. 

Pitching: McNelly uses a glove side setup while using a side step. Mid chest leg drive with a slight lean over the belt. Has a moderate stride while landing slightly closed. Moderate arm swing while arm stays in line with 2B, while working through a standard 3/4 slot. Upright with finish. FB: Peak velo of 79 MPH, while sitting 77-79 MPH; arm side run. CB: 72-73 MPH.

7/30/20

Physical: Lean / athletic 5-foot-8, 130-pound frame with a feel for his body. 7.67 runner in the 60-yard dash. Offensively: RHH. Wide, even stance with balance throughout, the hands started idle on the shoulder in the setup. Utilized a bat waggle coupled with a toe-tap stride with some hip glide into the front side at impact launching the hands through a slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Was able to use an adjustable and athletic lower half to stay behind the baseball and match pitch plane regardless of height generating hard barrels all over the middle of the field during batting practice. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 80 mph according to Trackman Baseball with even more in the tank as he continues adding strength. Defensively: The primary third baseman featured active footwork with a hop step as the pre pitch timing. Showed off a quick first step with range to the glove hand side, a soft glove hand played out in front of the toes corralling the ball in the middle of his body on the approach. Accurate high ¾ arm-slot across the diamond out of a short arm circle, minimal momentum towards the target. INF - 70 mph Pitching: RHP - Started from the left side of the rubber with a side rocker step, medium leg lift with moderate pace throughout, easy / repeatable delivery, landed with good posture while releasing through a quick high ¾ slot. FB ranged from 71-73 mph with command in the zone, mixed in a tight 60-62 mph breaker with late 11/5 shape out of the same window. 


6/29/20

Physical: 5-foot-8, 130 pounds; lean, wiry. 7.89 runner in the 60. Offensively: RHH. Open, wide, 45 degree bat; loads hands short back then second load further back, toe tap. limited effort with long, sweeping.  Fly balls middle of the field; peak Trackman exit velocity of 76 MPH. Defensively: Upright, active pre-pitch; active, fields center of body. fields out front, clean transfer; moderate arm swing, standard 3/4.   INF - 63 MPH. Pitching: Glove side, compact repeatable delivery. Short arm action, standard 3/4. FB: T 72MPH, 69-72 MPH. Good carry with some arm side run. CB: 62-63 MPH. 11-5 rotation with some good depth. CH: 66-67 MPH. CH has good vertical separation from FB.

3/08/20

5-foot-6, 125-pound right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and uses a lift-and-replace stride to begin. Showed a feel for the barrel with a line drive approach. Registered a bat exit velocity of 73 mph and ran an 8.34 60-yard dash. Showcased active feet and played through the baseball routinely defensively with 70 mph arm strength across the diamond. The righty sat 67-70 on the mound out of a high 3/4 arm slot while staying in line with a short takeaway arm action. Curveball at 58-60 showed tight 11/5 rotation and changeup was thrown with good arm speed and showed arm-side fade at 64-65.
