Scouting Report

7/18/19: Purdue commit. Lean, athletic build. 6-foot-1, 155-pound left-handed hitting shortstop for Morris Chiefs. Balanced setup, smooth load, short stride, slight leg lift. Quick hands, long, uphill path to the baseball, fluid rhythm through contact, worked competitive at-bats, showed a patient, pull-side approach at the plate. Very projectible as he fills out his frame. Made an appearance in relief against 29ers baseball on Day One as well. Drop/drive type delivery, works in line with target, square landing. Loose arm action, short draw, high ¾ slot, ball comes out his hand cleanly. Fastball touched 81 mph, sat between 78-80 mph with some run. Curveball played at 68-70 mph, 11/5 shape, tight break.


2/23/2019:
Ty Gill, SS/RHP, Valparaiso HS, 2021, 6 foot 1, 155 pounds, continued to impress at this event posting exit velo of 90 mph, throwing 85 mph across the diamond, and running a 7.15 60 yard dash. Has the tools and athleticism to stay at SS, and also has the bat speed and swing to hit in the middle of anyone’s lineup.

7/24/18: 2021 athletic MIF prospect hits from the left side. Open setup in box, smooth rhythm throughout swing. Stride is short to the baseball. Bat path is uphill creating leverage and extension. Showed good bat speed during round of BP. Showed gap to gap ability with juice in bat for MIF prospect. Got down the line at 4.52. In the field displayed soft hands, fielding everything out in front with sound footwork. Throws were accurate across the diamond at 81. Very good 2021 MIF who's tools will continues to improve with added strength to frame.

2/24/18:  6-foot, 145 pound left-handed hitting shortstop has potential power in the batters box. Lanky frame, some length in the swing.  Short stride, smooth hand load.  Above average bat speed.  Uphill path to contact, stays on plane.  Average balance.  High exit velocity of 78mph. Defensively, hands are above average.  Long transfer at times.  Flat, clean footwork.  Throws had carry across the infield.  Highest velocity was 82.  Ran a 7.27 60 yard dash.

2017 Junior Future Games - Left-handed hitting middle infielder, with a lean projectable frame. Offensively, slightly open set-up, loose quick hands with level path, stayed in middle of field, advanced approach. Consistent hard contact with competitive at bats. Defensively, athletic active feet, plays through the ball, lower arm slot for short-stop but has carry. Very projectable middle infield prospect.
