Notes

Comments

7/27/22

Palkowski is listed at 5-foot-11, 190-pounds with good proportions and strength throughout. Cade impressed in the batting practice portion of the Future Games, using a short compact handsy swing to hit line drives to all fields reaching exit velos of 96 mph. The simple short trigger, short stride and strength in his hands lends itself to good strike zone decisions and the ability to adjust to different ways pitchers are attacking. Palkowski is also a bursty runner who gets good jumps and takes appropriate routes to run down balls in centerfield. Cade also showed impressive arm strength throwing 87 mph from the outfield during defensive work. Cade Palkowski is an uncommitted high ceiling prospect who is going to be a great addition at the next level. 

3/06/22

He showed his athleticism early, and throughout the day, beginning it with a 6.86 in the 60-yard dash. In the box, Palkowski works from a stock setup with a controlled barrel wiggle, cross striding slightly into plant and crowding the plate with aggression. He enters the zone with a more vertical entry from inside and produces violence at impact with high contact quality and ball speed to all fields (95 mph max exit velocity). Notably, performing well in the pull-side gap for a player who lands on the chalk. From the outfield, he worked a longer loop with a power arm that peaked at 91 mph while ranging well on defense and moving with all the athleticism needed to stick up the middle moving forward. While his athleticism, left-handed bat, and center field profile make it hard for him to project as anything other than a position player, he also has a carry fastball that reached an 83.7 mph max on Sunday, featuring high-end vertical action.

Strong physical build, athletic left-handed hitting outfielder; compact/strong lower half. Played centerfield and hit two-hole. Short compact swing, showed feel for the barrel and plate discipline.
