Ontario Insider: Uncommitted Underclass Spotlight - Denzel Clarke, OF

Denzel ClarkeName: Denzel Clarke
Position: Outfield
Height/Weight: 6-foot, 160-pounds
Club Team: Toronto Mets
Grad: 2018

Background: Clarke is an athletic outfielder who has grown since last summer’s underclass games to 6-foot, 160-pounds, and starting to look like the player we envisioned when we saw him for the first time in 2015. Clarke is well proportioned, long legs and arms, projects to continue to grow and add strength. Currently, shows solid actions all around in different areas of the game. Real good athletic actions defensively, shows body control in the outfield with good footwork, arm strength has improved, actions are pretty clean and fits mold of being a potential centre fielder. Offensively, added strength has paid dividends at the plate and with his swing. Starts in a balanced position, legs evenly spread, small stride to load with hands back in good position to hit. Gap power guy right now, will add more as he develops and matures. Aggressive approach at the plate, reminds us of outfielder Eric Senior who was a 23rd round pick of the Oakland Athletics last year and is now at Midland college.
