5-foot-10, 165-pound athletic frame. During the event, recorded a 60 time of 7.42. Started in an athletic open stance with a controlled load, then used a short stride to initiate his swing. Had efficient bat speed, flat swing plane and good extension on his finish. Found some barrels through his round. Base hit approach. the right-handed hitter clocked an exit velocity of 80 mph. His best position velocity in the outfield was registered at 77 mph. Fluid In the infield, has smooth footwork and a clean exchange. Used an-over-the-top slot with a loose arm action. Solid skills in the outfield and handles pitches in and out with the bat.

Another young player (‘23 grad) at the event that did a nice job of showing his ability. At the plate, he started with an open stance with the feet and the hands set high in the setup. There is some definite projection in the swing as he showed a level swing path and drove balls to the middle of the field. He did show the ability to drive balls on the outer half of the plate to the backside. In the OF, the defensive actions are clean and he has solid fundamentals and really worked through balls well to make the throw. The arm action was clean and throws stayed on plane to the plate. Nice looking ‘23 player.

7/07/19

Your ideal 2-hole hitter in a lineup. A middle-opp approach with a short, compact swing. Level bat path with hard ground balls and line drives during BP. Uses a small leg kick for his load. Defensively, shows nice feet and works behind balls well. Ball comes out of the hand nice on his throws (73 mph) from the outfield. Can be a solid player when he grows and continues to develop.
