Notes

Comments

6/15/21

Physical: Strong, durable 6-foot-2, 185lb frame with tangible feel for his body. 7.62 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Narrow, upright start position with the hands starting high by the ear. Utilized a slight barrel tip on time with a deliberate, short toe tap stride to initiate the swing; entered through a flat path into the hitting zone with some controlled whip through impact. Natural loft in the approach, lifting the ball to the LCF part of the field; posted a 36% fly ball rate / 27% line drive rate slash line, pointing towards the ability to hit for extra-base hits down the road. A 62% on-plane efficiency suggests solid bat to ball skills with room to continue sharpening the approach in game action. Worked his way up to a T88 mph exit velocity and will gain consideration as a middle of the order bat down the line. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder demonstrated early lateral movements during routes with ability to get quality reads off the bat. Got downhill with the chest and used a soft, trusted glove hand to corral inside of the left foot, exchanging accurately at the waist. Long arm-swing and fluidity through release at a rhythmic high ¾ slot (80 mph arm, on target). Projects to hold down a corner OF position moving forward. 

Pitching: RHP - The righty flashed obvious two-way abilities with moderate pace to the delivery. Got down the slope with athleticism, releasing on time with some arm-side run/life back over the plate at 80-83 mph. Mixed an above-average 69-71 mph CB with feel for spin and hard horizontal bite, adding an advanced 73-75 mph CH (1447rpms, 10 inches average HM, 100% zone rate) with plus command to either side of the plate.


3/06/21

Physical: 6’2 185lb OF/3B ran a 7.90 laser timed 60-yard dash.  Solid build with room to add strength and improve overall speed in his game. 

Offensively: He starts in a shoulder width stance with his hands high and pre loaded. He uses a leg lift and slight hip coil as his timing mechanism before delivering the barrel down through the ball. He keeps his hands inside of the ball nicely and uses a rotational swing to generate his power through the hitting zone.

Defensively: He receives the ball off of this glove side foot and uses a multi step pro step to generate momentum into his throws. His arm works from a ¾ arm slot with his elbow staying below his shoulder and catapulting the ball towards his target.


3.10.19 - 5-foot-7, 130-pound primary right-handed pitcher utilized a leg-hang in his delivery to create downhill action into a high 3/4 release on fastballs that sat 66-68 mph. Showed command of a 57-59 mph curveball that featured 10/4 tilt. The righty displayed a 59-62 mph changeup. Right-handed hitter starts with a square stance uses a heel-raise to initiate his swing. Creates length in his swing while arm-barring which, if shortened, will improve his 70 mph bat-exit velocity. Demonstrated capable actions the outfield to register throws of 65 mph from his position. Ran an 8.33 60-yard dash.
