10/14/18 - 6-foot-2, 165-pound frame. Lean projectable body. Rated as the top uncommitted sophomore arm in AZ and his bullpen at this event made it clear why. Collins effortlessly pounded the zone with 83-86 mph fastballs from a low 3/4 arm slot. Tons of physical projection remains in his 6-foot-2, 165-pound frame and it's easy to see Collins sitting comfortably in the low-90's or better a few years from now. The pitch that stood out even more on this look was his 72-75 mph changeup that was thrown in the zone with fastball arm speed and big fading action, projecting as a future plus pitch. Breaking ball will need to be tightened, but was thrown in zone; would like to see it developed into a shorter, hard SL.

6/6/18 - 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame. Wiry body. RHP/IF Cayden Collins is intriguing as a position player, but has a chance to be a premium prospect on the mound. Collins ran his fastball up to 85 mph with virtually no effort and a clean arm action from a low 3/4 slot. He showed the ability to throw his breaking ball for a strike and has plenty more in the tank as he continues to mature. With the recent jump, Collins has established himself as one of the top couple arms in the AZ 2021 class. Offensively Collins used a short, compact stroke and a linear swing path. Hands remained close to body throughout the swing, minimal extension; 77 mph exit velocity. Impressed with his actions on the infield. Positioned body and played through the ball very well. Kept feet moving the whole time, solid rhythm. Arm strength was apparent posting an 86 mph infield velocity. Also posted a 7.19 60-yard dash.

1/28/18 - 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame with lots of physical projection remaining. Profiles best on the mound where he worked 77-79, T80 with his fastball. Manages to get plane on his FB from a low ¾ arm slot while working slightly across his body. Very low effort delivery with short stride. 65-69 mph curveball shows downward break and will improve as he tightens the rotation and creates later break. Arm action/slot may fit a slider or slurve with more lateral break better. Also mixed in 69-72 mph changeup.

1/7/18 - Projectable, high-waisted 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame with broad shoulders. Will certainly be one to follow moving forward. Two-way prospect is currently more advanced as a RHP where he ran his fastball up to 79 with very little effort. Uses slight across body delivery and low ¾ arm slot to produce good angles on all of his pitches. Also mixed in 67-68 mph curveball with short, 11-5 break and 69-70 mph changeup with fading action despite inconsistent arm speed. Collins also shows soft hands on the infield and is an effortless mover, throwing 79 mph across the diamond from a lower arm slot. He consistently found the barrel with his flat bat path and produced 81 mph exit velocity that will jump significantly with increased physical strength. 7.38 60-yard dash.
