7/30/20

Physical: Lean / projectable 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame with high level athleticism throughout. 7.50 runner in the 60-yard dash. Offensively: RHH. Tall, wide open stance with the weight shifted slightly into a strong backside with minor bend into it, the hands started even with the shoulder with above average rhythm in the setup. Utilized a low load below the shoulder for launch coupled with a toe-tap stride to initiate a slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone, showed sink into an athletic lower half creating adjustability on pitches in any quadrant as well as the ability to lift the low pitch to the LCF gap. Peppered the outfield wall with a gap to gap feel and long levers dealt plenty of damage at the front of the plate during game action, demonstrated a mature approach in the box and didn’t try to do too much allowing for repeated hard contact. High level bat to ball skills while recording a peak bat-exit velocity of 91 mph according to Trackman Baseball / will continue seeing that number head north as he fills out. Defensively: The primary outfielder featured a medium center of gravity with advanced range in either direction, long stride with fluidity on the approach while fielding off of the left side of his body, Natural feel in space with ability to cover ground laterally, accurate high ¾ arm-slot on throws towards the target, could occupy one of the three OF positions moving forward depending on how the footspeed develops. OF - 79 mph Pitching: RHP - Started from the middle-left side of the rubber with a side rocker step, medium pace throughout working into a controlled leg lift at waist height while driving out towards the plate directionally through a strong backside, gets the body over the front side upon land while releasing through a high ¾ slot with downhill plane to it. FB ranged from 76-78 T79 mph with heaviness into the zone showing an upwards of 2157 spin per Trackman Baseball / mixed in a quality 64-67 mph breaker showing slurve action creating swing and misses in the box. Countered with a hard 73-74 mph CUT FB with late bite and a 72-73 mph CH with quality sell on the release. Feel for three in the zone and has the chance to be a legitimate two way prospect moving forward.
