Scouting Report

Underclass Games 6/20/18

Furhman is 5-11 with an athletic frame that still has projection left to it. He hits from the right side from an open upright balanced stance, leg kick stride on line, short load back, good rhythm to his swing. Explosive lower half and good balance, full hip rotation. Very short to ball, level line drive swing, strong at contact with some whippy extension, showed good approach working gap to gap, doubles power already present with chance for more, exit velocity was 90. At short, gets body behind the ball and fields with a wider base and average hands. Works through ball to a clean exchange, throws from a low three-quarters arm slot with a short free arm action, infield velocity was 78. On the mound, throws from low three-quarters arm slot with a short, quick arm action and some effort. Strides out on line and falls off a bit, with some recoil at the end of his delivery. Fastball was 77-79, touching 80, with boring action and late sink. Curveball was 66-68 with gradual 10/4 break and some armspeed, pitch should sharpen as he develops.
