SCOUT NOTES


Xavier Lovett, RHP/OF, Westfield, 2019
Mississippi State commit. Estimated 5-foot-9, 160-pound wiry, athletic, projectable frame. The right-hander throws from a high ¾ slot with a long arm swing. His fastball was 89-91 mph the entire outing, flashing some arm side run to righties. Threw a curveball that was 76-77 with 11-5 shape, flashing the ability to land it in the zone for strikes. Command of both pitches was better from the stretch. At the plate, he features a high leg lift with a quick swing and a solid opposite field approach with line drive power. Ran a 4.34 from home to 1st.
