Scouting Report

The talented two way Junior had a solid weekend at the Texas State Games. Ran a solid 7.11 and took good routes in the OF. The LHH had multiple Line Drives in game play to go along with good Blast Numbers.  On the mound, the LHP topped out at 85.5 showing some Arm Side Run and an impressive Max IVB  21.3 in. He also showed the feel for spin with a sharp breaking ball and a change-up that should keep RHH's off balance.
