Scouting Report

5.24.17: Hits from the left side, elite bat speed, level swing working uphill with a primarily pull approach, can use the entire field. Quiet swing, ready to hit at next level. At short, smooth actions, plays with a good rhythm, soft hands and works through the ball well. Plenty of arm strength and a clean arm action.

9.29.16 - Virginia commit. High ceiling athlete with ton of projection and will be one to keep an eye on in June. Simple set up at the plate with free hands that get direct to the baseball. Creates fast bat speed with a smooth swing. Nice balance throughout. Smooth actions in the field. May project to a corner infield spot as he fills frame. Longer, loose arm action with carry on throws.  Ran a 7.08 60-yard dash.

8.9.16 (Area Code Games) - SS Tanner Morris (Miller School, VA) was undeterred by Greene’s fastball, squaring up 96 for a single through the left side. He also had a sacrifice fly on Sunday.

7.16.16 -  Morris went with a pitch and squared it up between the shortstop and third baseman.

5.22.16:  Hits from a balanced, athletic stance that is slightly crouched. Slight load back with a toe to heel stride that stays on line and controlled. Explosive drive to the ball that maintains balance. Bat exit velocity of 89 MPH with wood. Advanced approach to the round.  Short, level swing path that stays through the ball.

10.24.15 - 2017 MIF Tanner Morris (St. Anne’s Bellfield HS, VA) delivered the decisive blow during Team Evoshield’s 5-0 win over Elite Squad Louisville Slugger (not to be confused with Elite Squad Prime). With Team Evoshield leading 1-0, the athletically built 6-foot-2, 165-pound left-handed hitting Virginia recruit ripped a grand slam in the sixth inning to secure the victory. Morris has a balanced, level swing and should continue to add weight to his projectable frame. He also showed soft hands at second base, though he can play shortstop and third base as well.

Overthrew a bit in the first inning, struggling with command, much better in second to fourth innings.

7/16/16 - RHP Kyle Whitten (Osbourn Park HS, VA) started and logged three innings and allowed three walks and a hit. He lost command of his stuff in the second inning, but was able to wriggle out of jams with the help of his defense. His fastball sat 87-89 mph with some occasional cut and sink to it. He mixed in a rolling curveball at 70-71, but flashed a couple harder breaking balls with more lateral action at 74. His changeup was firm with some fade in the low 80s.

6/25/16 - + RHP Kyle Whitten (Osbourn Park HS, VA), a Virginia recruit, has a skinny frame at 6-foot-2, 163 pounds. He pitches with an up tempo delivery and a quick arm. He hides the ball behind his hip well, making it tough for hitters to pick up. His curveball has 11/5 shape and depth at 69-73, though it was inconsistent. He sat 86-89 with his fastball and flashed a slider at 77. In his three innings of work, Whitten allowed three hits and two walks while striking out three.

3.21.16:  Whitten is a lanky righty that throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a rushed drop and drive delivery. He has a short arm action that is loose with a quick arm, generating velocity with some effort. His shoulders are uphill as he strides to a square landing before falling off as he finishes. Whitten’s fastball had good plane and some late sinking action. It touched 87, sitting 83-86. He showed a late, 12/6 breaking ball that was 71. 

2.15.15 Whitten has a lanky frame and throws from a high three-quarters slot. He has a short, loose arm action and a very quick armstroke. He has drop and drive mechanics with a smooth rhythm. His shoulders are uphill and on line, and he creates good angle on his pitches before falling off a bit at finish. Whitten’s four seam fastball sat at 84 mph with little movement and his two seamer sat 82 mph with good action to it. He threw an outstanding, sharp slider with full armspeed that ran 70-74 mph. He also threw a fading change-up with full armspeed that ran 75-77 mph. Whitten threw all of his pitches with outstanding command.

11/8/14:  Whitten is a very projectable, 6-foot-2, 160 pound pitcher with an athletic frame. He throws from a high three-quarters slot with smooth mechanics and easy effort to go with his quick arm. His shoulders are uphill and closed at power position and he strides down the mound on line. Whitten sat 82-84 and touched 85 with his fastball. His four seamer was a bit flat but his two seamer has heavy run on it and he demonstrated really good feel of the pitch. Whitten threw a slider from 71-72 with late break that was very good when down in the zone, but he was a bit erratic with his command at times. He also threw a change-up at 74-75 with good fading action that he kept down in the zone.
