Athletic actions in the OF. Light & quick on his feet. Soft hands with a consistent glove. Quick accurate arm at 80mph arm strength. Development should be followed.

12/15/19

Large athletic 5’11” 155lbs build, some fast twitch movements & projectability, one of the better athletes at the event. Turned in the top 60 yard dash time at 6.85. LHH with middle approach that hits from a narrow open base, landing square. Short inside swing with some separation, Watkins barreled up the ball consistently in his round of BP. His speed and athleticism should play in the OF. Low effort movements in OF at event with little momentum and follow through at 73mph.

6/06/18

5-foot-9, 130-pound frame. Hit from a narrow stance with weight slightly preset onto backside. Lifts front foot and creates hip tilt during load. Looking to get extended.

High ¾ release and soft front leg on throws; 73 mph outfield velocity. Also ran a 7.33 60-yard dash.

5/20/18

5-foot-9, 130-pound frame. Offensively, hits from tall setup with high back elbow, slotting it as he strides forward to create a solid base and land in good position to hit. Gets barrel on plane and made some hard line drive contact to the pull side during his round of BP; 76 mph exit velocity. Posted 73 mph outfield velo, taking a number of steps before release and solid 7.26 60-yarddash. Also pitched, running his fastball up to 76 mph from high ¾ arm slot and slower tempo delivery.
