5-foot-11, 200 pounds, thick, strong frame, well-proportioned athlete. Still room to continue adding strength without sacrificing any athleticism. Ran a 4.59 home-to-first. On offense, Boettger’s feet set shoulder width apart and he stances even at the plate. There is slight tilt in the bat and the hands set at the letters. His hands are loose and he generated a tee exit velocity of 82 mph. Good hip rotation with a pull-oriented approach. Boettger singled twice during gameplay, making good contact consistently over the course of the afternoon. Defensively, he throws from a high ¾ slot. He has soft hands and clean actions. His throws were clocked up to 71 mph across the diamond. Improving arm strength with help round out his defensive skill set. Also a right-handed pitcher, Boettger’s hands start at the chest before dropping to the belt during his delivery. He throws from a high ¾ slot and could see a velocity bump if he begins tapping into his legs more. His fastball sat 78-79, touching as high as 80 mph. The pitch has some sink to it. His breaking ball has a 12/6 shape with good spin, coming in between 65-68 mph. The changeup has some fade with room to develop, and was clocked between 69-70 mph with same arm speed as the fastball. Overall, Boettger has some appeal as both a position player and a right handed pitcher. Worth monitoring this offseason.

Boettger stands in at 5-foot-11, 200-pounds with a thick, strong, athletic frame. Offensively- Righty sets up square to the pitcher with his feet outside shoulder width. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso hold the bat in front of the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch, his trigger is a quick stride forward while his hands move back slightly into his hitting position. Utilizes good lower body rotation clearing the hips using his whole-body frame in the pitch. Shows quick hands into the hitting zone with upward lift barrel action throughout into a high one-handed finish. Demonstrated potential gap to gap power during batting practice round with clean fluid swings. Recorded an exit velocity of 83 MPH. Defensively- Good approach and footwork to the baseball. Fields the ball well getting it into his chest. Tends to double tap the ball before getting it to the throwing position. A smoother transition would be beneficial for a quicker throw. Moves well left/right and in on the run getting to the baseball. Was accurate with throws across the diamond. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 75 MPH. Pitching- Sets up in the middle of the rubber with a simple side step into a high leg raise above the hip crease. Breaks down well with good separation into a high ¾ release point. Could engage lower half into the delivery with a better follow through to get in a good fielding position. Will come with more strength and development. Fastball range was 78-79 MPH and peaked at 80 MPH showing arm side run. Curveball was 65-68 MPH with good 12/6 action. Change up range was 69-70 with arm side sink.
