Scouting Report

10/21/17 - Home-1st: 4.81, Position Velocity:  IF-88, Exit Velocity: 91
5-foot-11, 175-pound, RHH continues to just hit while proving he is a true SS, as he went 2-5 at the plate with a walk and no swing and miss on 5 swings.  Medium, athletic frame w/ present strength, some projection.  Offensively, hits from a straight on, crouched stance w/ back ear hand location.  Short bat waggle.  Shift of weight, leg kick and proper load.  Still head w/ balance allows him high contact ability.  Strong forearms w/ back-spin projects to hit for pull HR power.  All fields approach w/ ability to drive the ball where it is pitched.  Recognizes spin w/ idea of his strike zone.  Average runner underway.  Defensively, tested better in arm strength then last month’s previous look while making all the plays in game.  Soft hands w/ good feet.  High upside middle infield prospect w/ above average bat for position.

9/24/17 - Home-1st: 4.69, Position Velocity:  82, Exit Velocity: 87
5-foot-11, 175-pound, RHH impressed w/ his game playing ability, going 2-4 at the plate with no swing and miss and making a couple nice plays at SS.  Medium, athletic frame w/ present strength.  Straight on, slightly crouched stance w/ high back ear hand location.  Bat waggle.  Shift of weight, leg kick and proper load.  Balanced w/ above average bat speed.  All fields approach w/ projectable power coming.  Barrel feel.  Can recognize and adjust to off-speed pitches.  Average runner who knows how to play the game and run the bases, stealing a base in game.  Reliable defensive middle infielder that makes the routine play and has tools to make the difficult play.  Intriguing combination of 2019 tools in a high upside prospect.

9/10/17 - 5-11, 175-pound middle infielder.  Righty hits from a straight on, slightly crouched stance w/ back ear hand location.  Knee to knee type stride w/ hands going into proper load position.  Above avg bat speed.  Got a little off balance at times with the lower half.  Gap to gap approach.  DNS enough defensively for an eval.  Intriguing 2019 prospect.

7/5/17 - 60 Time: 7.27, Position Velocity:  IF-83, Exit Velocity: 84
5-11, 170-pound, RHH hits from an athletic stance with loose hands and some rhythm, uses an abbreviated leg kick and stride with a movement back of his hands to get loaded, lower half fires but can pull him forward at times, hands are whippy through contact, swing plane is flat to slightly up through contact, gap pop with a middle-pull approach.  Defensively, showed soft hands and fluid footwork, plays through the ball with confidence, arm action is loose through a high 3/4 slot, firm and accurate throws.  Earned a spot on the Future Games roster.
