Scouting Report

8/25/20

 

Physical: 5-foot-9, 140 pounds; lean, lanky frame with long arms. 7.53 runner in the 60.
Offensively: RHH. Wide feet with some weight on his back leg, keeps the hands moving to maintain rhythm in the load; shoots the hands back at the same time he goes into his toe tap forward. Some good load onto the back leg, rotates well around hips. Uses an arm bar to extend his front arm, gets the barrel out and around the pitch. Hit the ball up the middle hard, got around the outside pitch and pulled it to the left field gap well; peak Trackman exit velocity of 82 MPH.
Defensively: Wide feet with slight bend at the midsection; takes prep steps and gets the feet moving well to field the ball with a low chest. Soft hands, funnels quickly to his belt with a solid transfer; moderate arm swing out of the glove, whippy and loose actions from a 3/4 slot. INF - 75 MPH.
