Scouting Report

1/15/18 - 60 Time: 6.90, Exit Velocity: 84

5-foot-9, 165-pound, RHH shows plus run speed w/ middle infield tools and bat speed.  Short, athletic profile w/ lean strength, physical projection.  Offensively, hits from an open, slightly crouched stance w/ back shoulder hand location.  Leg kick to square w/ proper load.  Whippy bat speed w/ ability to go gap to gap.  Quiet head w/ barrel feel.  Can really hit.  Projects to hit for average and gap power.  Plus runner will be a doubles and triples threat.  Defensively, moves well w/ ability to play through the ball.  Shows ability to make late adjustments to ground-balls.  Tools to stay at SS.  Uncommitted senior is a must see this spring.

9/18/17 - 5-9, 165-pound OF w/ plus running speed and some feel for barrel.  The righty hits from an open stance w/ a slight crouch and back shoulder hand location.  Hanging leg kick w/ proper load.  Short to the ball w/ bat speed and gap to gap approach.  Plus runner who glides across the bases.  DNS enough for a defensive eval.  Intriguing speed first OF.
