Scouting Report

Scouting Director Notes

"6-foot-5, 220-pound third baseman made his presence known at All-State Showcase.  Lawrence put on a tower power display at the dish w/ consistent loud, contact and ball just jumping off the barrel.  Balanced swing w/ short, simple load followed by electric bat speed. Can harness the power to all fields w/ good spray chart.  At the hot corner, moved well for big league frame fielded ball out front w/ light hands and working well through the ball.  Ample arm strength to stay at 3B, an offensive slugger who will be climbing the ranking boards as the 2020 season fires up." - Colton Provey
