Scouting Report

12/15/19

6’3” 175lbs frame, tall long limbed body with good athleticism and room to get stronger. Has an above average left handed bat with a middle LD approach with ability to lift occasionally. Starts from upright base shifting weight from front leg to back small leg lift slightly above ground level. Loads elbows back creating vertical barrel entry. 83mph exit velocity, more pop with more backside drive present. Comfortable fielder that fielded with effort. Long limbs combined with flexibility and athleticism gives him some extra range to work with. Played through the ball with 84mph arm strength across the diamond. Size and speed will determine if he is able to stay at SS or move to a corner position in the future. Gump has natural tools and the ability to be a high level player. Strong follow going into spring.

 

6/12/19

6’2 175-pound frame with broad shoulders and long limbs. Starts upright with feet inside shoulder width. Hits with a toe tap and stays square throughout his swing. Barrel tilts up as he starts forward in his strike, giving him momentum behind the strike zone. Middle approach. Has a knack for hitting in games. Projects well as a 1B but will need to speed things up to stay on the left side of the infield. Ran a 7.06 60
