On Saturday February 16th and February 23rd PBR Maryland will host the Preseason All-State at the Harford Sports Performance Center in Forest Hill, MD. The biggest events prior to the high school season in Maryland will feature several of the top players and prospects from around the state and put them all on one stage in front of the PBR scouting staff. As with all PBR events, all players will get their performance videoed and professionally edited to update or start their PBR Profile. Today we spotlight one of the players on the roster for the event.

Don't miss out on your opportunity to #BESEEN before the high school season begins!

Scouting Report

MD Fall Invitational 11.3.18

Solid body type and 5-foot-10, 210 pound frame. Hits from a balanced, athletic, open stance. Quick back load into a slightly crouched compact hitting position. Creates nice separation and showed fast bat speed. Short, level swing path with only lower half involvement. Hits against a stiff front side and does not fully rotate hips and lower half. Still a gap-to-gap type hitter right now with power but freeing up the lower half will lead to much more. Ball jumps off the bat with a 86 mph exit velo. Big target behind the plate and receives well with a quiet body. Showed quick footwork and gained ground on throws to second base. Clean exchanges and very accurate throws. Throws with short arm action from a high three-quarter slot at 72 mph. Pop times ranged 2.06-2.09.
