6/30/19

Physical with present tools for the rising freshman. Actions and arm are both above average in the outfield, with the arm notching 77 mph. ng 77 mph. Raw offensively, but there’s some present barrel ability. Doubled down the LF line with some quickness in the swing. Can loosen up the hands, but there’s good extension after contact. Projectable on the mound as well, around the zone at 75-77. Good feel with great tempo. Used an above average change up at 69 as secondary pitch. A player to follow in the coming years.
