Most Viewed Profiles of 2020 - Hunter Komine


Dan Jurik
Scouting Director - Pacific Northwest

We're halfway through our countdown of the most viewed profiles in 2020. Next on the list at #5 overall is '22 OF Hunter Komine (Jackson)

Komine was on the radar in Washington early on and cracked our initial 2022 rankings back in August of 2019. This past summer we had the chance to get eyes on him at one of our Summer Kickoff events and he didn't disappoint. Started off by showing quality speed in the 60 and flashed some defensive versatility by working both in the OF and at SS. Offensively, took an aggressive round of BP with consistent hard contact and feel for the barrel. Committed to San Diego in late August this summer.

Scouting Report

7/08/20

 

5-foot-8, 165 pounds with a strong, compact build and balanced strength throughout frame. Offensively, sets up in a balanced, athletic stance tight to the plate. Slight bend in lower half with upright posture. Hands show some rhythm& movement as he gets into leg kick. Gathers weight back as hands load to create stretch against front side. Lands in a wide hitting base with weight centered. Barrel covers the zone & gets on plane early. Produced consistent line-drive contact throughout BP. Posted quality swing metrics with peak bat speed at 73.70 & average rotation acceleration of 25.06g. Utilizes core/athleticism efficiently in swing to create power. Stays balanced through contact. Defensively showed well in the OF, where speed and arm strength profile nicely. Moves laterally with short, quick footwork. Came in on the ball with confidence and an aggressive tempo. Consistent exchange into throwing motion. Uses a step-behind shuffle to get behind throw. Short arm path with a 3/4 release. Also mixed in some reps on the INF. Stays light on his feet & keeps body control throughout. Flashed quickness in hands on the exchange. Similar arm path to OF with a more compact release.
