Maxwell Carlson, RHP/OF, Burnsville, 2020
6-foot, 155-pound right-handed hitting 2-way player. Whippy arm from an immature frame. Ran his fastball up to 88 and sat 86-88 with some ASR. Crisply repeats motion. Dropped his elbow some on the slider (70mph), but it showed tight spin with 11/5-10/4 break. Got under it a bit, but it has a chance to be a swing and miss pitch. Showed plus feel for the changeup at 71-72 for strikes with nice fading action. Much more velocity to come for him as he matures. 7.02 runner with long strides. At the plate showed easy rhythm and balance with a two-handed hard swing and finish. Ball jumped off his bat and he worked line drives to the middle of the field. Arm worked with carry from the outfield with a loose, medium swing. 91 mph arm strength from outfield.
