3/13/21

VA/DC PreSeason All-State Central

Poole is 6-2 with an athletic 215 pound frame that has strength present and plenty of projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a slightly open balanced athletic stance, low leg kick stride on line, smooth load back. Hips rotate with violence and he maintains some lower half balance. Hands stay inside, quick to the ball, fast bat, slightly uphill line drive swing path, strong at contact with extension through the ball, showed a good approach working the middle of the field, power present to all fields, gets a lot of carry gap to gap, exit velocity was 96. In the outfield, gets body behind the ball and fields through it with above average hands, clean exchange, throws from a lower three-quarters arm slot, short loose very quick arm action, position velocity was 88. Ran a 7.36 60 yard dash. On the mound, he throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, very short free quick arm action and high effort to his delivery. Drop and drive delivery, shoulders are level and closed, lands closed with a fall off finish and recoil. Fastball was 81-84, touching 85, with some downward angle and some late armside run to it. Curveball was 68-71 with some armspeed and sharp 11/5 break to it. Change-up was 73-74 with good armspeed and some late fade to it.

11/15/20

VA/DC Last Chance Open

Poole is 6-2 with an athletic frame that has some strength present and some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance, low leg kick stride on line, two step load back to a slight wrap. Hips rotate completely with violence and he maintains some lower half balance. Hands stay inside, short and very quick to the ball, slightly uphill swing path with a very strong contact point and some extension through the ball, some whip to his bat, showed a pull approach with the ability to use the whole field, power present to all fields, exit velocity was 96. In the outfield, gets behind the ball and fields through it with above average hands, clean exchange, throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, long arm action, position velocity was 84. Ran a 7.60 60 yard dash. On the mound, he throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, very short free quick arm action and higher effort to his delivery. Drop and drive delivery, shoulders are uphill and closed, lands closed with a fall off finish and recoil. Fastball was 78-79, touching 80, with downward angle and a bit of armside run. Curveball was 65-66 with good armspeed and sharp 12/6 break to it. Change-up was 72-73 with good armspeed and some late heavy fade.

1/11/20

Strong physical frame at 6-foot-2, 210-pounds. Square athletic stance hitting from the right side. Simple pick up to stride landing square. Hands load back in rhythm, quick level path, and the swing displayed some pull side tendency. Has some built in strength and power to the frame that will allow the 86 mph exit velocity to allow him to hit for extra bases. In the outfield Poole was under control on approach, fielded inside glove side foot, and had a clean double tap exchange. Arm circle was average and threw from a three-quarter arm slot with plenty of arm strength, posting a 87 mph outfield velocity. Ran a 7.56 60. Worked primarily from the stretch, open at setup, hands set low and away from the body. Balanced and gathered over the rubber with a waist high leg lift. Foot gets back in line with back foot for a down and out stride and lands closed. Hips and shoulders closed as they move down the mound and falls off towards first base side. Hands break low and into a full arm circle from a three-quarter arm slot. Fastball had carry through the zone at 80-82 and throws it with intent. Had average feel for an 11/5 breaking ball that sat at 64-66. The curveball tended to back out of the hand and work to the arm side. Changeup was 67-70 mph and lacked arm speed at times.

6/20/18

Underclass Games

Poole is 6-1 with an athletic frame that has some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from an open athletic stance, short stride on line, loads back into a bar, some rhythm, hips are explosive and rotate completely, good balance to swing. Quick bat, strong at contact, slightly uphill path with extension through the ball, showed a pull approach, can generate some carry to pull side, exit velocity was 80. In the outfield, gets body behind ball and plays through it, fields with average hands, throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, outfield velocity was 78. On the mound, throws from a low three-quarters arm slot with a short arm action that is quick and some effort to his delivery. Body is on line and square throughout delivery, athletic finish. Fastball was 76-79, touching 80, with downward plane and some late run to it. Curveball was 68-69 with some armspeed and gradual 11/5 break to it, pitch should tighten into a good pitch as he gets stronger and can spin it more.
