Colorado Senior Games Spotlight: OF/RHP Gabe Atkins of Rock Canyon HS


John Cackowski
Director of Scouting

PBR Colorado strives to be the most comprehensive source of player information across the state. The Prep Baseball Report is the No. 1 resource for high school baseball in each state we cover through our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms. Our multimedia platforms and events work in tandem, ultimately creating the most powerful source of high school baseball promotion in each state. While other organizations take a national approach, our goal is to become the authoritative voice on the ground level of each state.

Scouting Report

3/10/19

 

5-foot-9, 150-pound right hand hitting OF/RHP who ran a 6.93 laser timed 60. Athletic open stance at the plate with hands relaxed and show some flow. Hands load back with some rhythm and uses a small toe tap to stride landing on line. Bat gets on plane early and stays through the hitting zone. Good use of the lower half and finishes it completely with some balance. Exit velo was 76 mph off the live pitch. Works behind the ball on defense with active feet on approach. Exchange is clean and moves to a longer arm circle throwing from a three-quarter arm slot at 75 mph. Stretch pitcher with hands held high at balance. Tall and fall motion to the plate and lands in-line on his delivery. Arm is over the top with consistent speed on his pitches. Fastball as 74-76 mph and straight. Curve had 11/5 shape and sat 67-68 mph, he finished with a 71-72 mph change with late sink.

5-foot-8, 128-pound right hand hitting OF/RHP.  At the plate he hits from a balanced stance with a slow load on the pitch.  Good lower leg drive on the swing.  Hands come through the zone on an uphill path.  Exit velocity was 78 MPH.  In the field he showed good athletic actions and instincts.  He has soft hands and a good glove to hand transfer.  Arm Velocity was 74 MPH.  On the mound he gets to balanced and sinks and drives to the plate.  Will benefit from a stronger lower leg drive.  Delivery is from a high 3/4 arm slot.  Fastball was 72 MPH with good location.  He added a 61 MPH Curve with sweeping break and a 62 MPH Change to finish his session.
