Scouting Report

1/26/20
6-foot 162-pounds, uncommitted, lean body with athleticism. Room to hold more strength. Hits from a wide athletic base with knees bent. Used slight front leg pick up for timing. Minimal transfer of weight through swing. Vertical barrel entry. Quick out of the zone, finishing low. Middle approach with slightly downward swing plane. 80mph exit velocity. Moves well in the OF with feel for the position, running a 6.88 60-yard dash. Uses a step behind with direction to create carry. Accurate arm, throwing over-top with 83mph arm strength.

6/11/19
6’0 162-pound frame. Starts with an open stance, getting food down early. Gets to toe first, as heel plants, swing starts. Barrel tips as stride starts, giving him early bat speed behind the zone. Lands with front leg soft, which gives him a chance to have adjustability throughout his swing. Middle approach, hitting balls hard in the air. Exit velo was 84 MPH. Uses as pro step to get in line with target from the outfield. Showed a strong arm at 84 MPH with good carry

 

10/14/18
5-foot-11, 162-pound frame. Lean, but displays solid strength for his age. Shines in the OF, as skills show at an advanced level. Posted 83 mph with clean arm action and solid footwork. Arm projects to improve with strength. Ran very solid 6.77 60-yard dash; athleticism stands out. At the plate, shows a tall set up with a simple load and approach. Bat path will allow him to continue making solid lined rive contact as he matures physically and moves up the ladder. Posted an 81 mph exit velocity.
