7/12/22

Takahashi is a strong 5-foot-8, 172-pound athlete who had a quality showing on Tuesday. After being referenced as one of the top outfield prospects in the West Milwaukee Preseason ID earlier in the spring, Takahashi proved once again why his name was mentioned. From the left side of the batter’s box, Takahashi consistently drove the ball in his BP session, averaging 279 feet, one of the top distances for the 2024s. In gameplay, he got two hits in his three at-bats, including an RBI. 

3/13/22

Positional Profile: OF/
Body: 5-8, 178-pounds. Strong, athletic build, physically developed lower-half.
Hit: LHH. Controlled move, early to toe down. Vertical tip.  Aggressive rotation. Grounded action. Vertical entry that flattens to impact. Hard line drives to middle and pullside.
Power: 90.5 max exit velocity, averaged 83.1 mph. 309’ max distance.
Arm: LH. OF - 80 mph. High 3/4 slot, long arm action.
Defense: Plays through the baseball, shuffles through release, downtempo
Run: 7.10 runner in the 60. 

3/13/22

Takahashi is a 5-foot-8, 178-pound left/left prospect with a strong, athletic build and a physically developed lower half. He started his day with a 7.10 time in the 60-yard dash before stepping in the box. He makes a controlled first move with an early toe-down striking position, and he made grounded swings with a vertical entry that flattened quickly, driving liners from the middle of the field to his pull-side. Takahashi has a habit of hitting line-drives with barrel control through events this winter, and in previous game looks. 

2/19/22

Standing at a stout 5-foot-8, 172-pounds of lean strength, Takahashi has shown improvement to his game and physical development over the last half year. The left-handed hitting outfielder is a high quality bat handler with the ability to adjust situationally, and that bat handling showed itself through his batting practice rounds. Takahashi put together one of the top rounds of the event as he repeated high contact quality and carrying flights throughout. He’s a high-character prospect with highly desirable makeup that changes a roster dynamic.

Body: 5-8, 160-pounds. Solid compact build.

Arm Action: LH. Long arm action, high 3/4 slot.

Power: Above-average max exit speed for size/age at an 87.8 mph high.
Run: 7.37 runner in the 60.

9/01/20

Small, athletic lead-off hitter for US Missouri Elite. Shows quick hands in the box, consistently putting the ball in play. Utilizes his speed to get on base and steal bases. Can cover ground in the outfield. Uncommitted.

6/02/20

5-foot-7, 145 pounds; athletic left/left two-way prospect.
