Notes

Comments

1/18/20

Physical Profile/Body - 5-9, 185lbs. Larger profile for his height. Sturdy lower half, lower body strength is ahead of upper body strength at this time. 

Hit - LHH with an open stance. Moderate hand load. Slightly uphill path. High finish. 
Power - 86 mph exit velocity (tee). Some pop present.
Running/Speed - 7.51 sixty time. 4.43 H/F.
Glove - Stop/start rhythm. Fielded the ball out front. Funneled to a position off the right shoulder.
Arm - 70 mph INF velo. Short arm action. Arm slot just off the ear, some fade present. 

Summary- LHH corner INF will continue to get stronger with maturity. Wanted to elevate the ball at the plate and showed a gap to gap approach. Somewhat choppy actions at 3rd, confident hands. Arm strength will improve with further player development. 

 

Mechanics - Medium rocker step. Compact balance point at the belt. Full arm action. Lands square, H3Q to OTT arm slot.
FB - Max FB 72 mph. FB Range 70-71. Showed good control of the FB. Some wiggle when he worked to the arm side.
CB - CB range 64-66 mph. Showed some hump out of the hand and 10/4 shape. Lost several breaking balls up in the zone to the arm side.
CH - CH Range 67-68 mph. Best offspeed pitch during his bullpen. Matched arm slot and hand speed. Heavy tendencies.

Summary - RHP with moderate effort in the delivery and good extension down the mound. Repeated his delivery well, consistent location on the FB and CH combo. Developing feel of the breaking ball.
