Scouting Report

12/15/21
The 6-foot, 158-pound two-way prospect has made quite the jump since the 2020 Jr. Future Games. Growing several inches and adding nearly twenty pounds over the past year, he still has a lean, wiry frame with projection. He's got a quick, loose arm that earned him a spot on Team TN for the 2021 Future Games. Quiet, repeatable delivery with good tempo down the slope. Ball comes out clean at 3/4 slot. FB at 86-90 (T 2237 rpm; Avg: 1973 rpm) with occasional arm side action, but attacks the zone, working a quick clean inning at FG. Leans on mid 70s CB with good bit and downer shape to keep hitters honest off the FB and shows an occasional CH at 74-75. Positionally, very solid behind the dish with good pitch presentation and great arm strength. Fairly clean transfers, popping right around a 2.00. At the plate, can handle the stick from both sides and is a tough at bat. Little light on power at the time, but that will come as he continues to fill out. Hamilton has potential as a true two-way, but he currently has more upside on the mound. He'll be an easy one to follow this Spring. 
6/24/20
5-foot-9, 140-pound lean frame. In the box, Hamilton clocked an exit velocity of 77 mph. Begins in a tall athletic stance with a slow load, then uses a small leg kick to initiate his swing. Had flat swing plane, quick bat speed and level finish. In the round he found some barrels with some loud contact. Line drive approach. Behind the plate, showed his ability to throw runners out with an efficient pop time of 1.95-2.02, he recorded a position velocity of 74 mph during throw downs; had smooth footwork, soft hands and a clean quick exchange. Above average flexibility and calm setup.Had a short arm action and a ¾ slot with decent accuracy to the base. Clocked a time of 7.64 in the 60-yard dash. Above average on the mound, showing quick arm speed he had a loose arm action with a ¾ arm angle. Drop-and-drive type pitcher who shows some effort. Showed strong balance point and uphill shoulders. Lands square with a clean finish. Sat with his fastball at 77-79 mph and topped out at 80 mph; has a tight fastball that shows some action and consistent control. Had decent control and late action on his sharp curveball (65-68). His changeup (70-73) shows fading action and around the zone control.
