Notes

1/31/21

2023 1B/RHP Josh Butler (Sandra Day O’Connor)- 6-foot-6, 205-pounds, tall, XL frame, wiry long-levered body, deceptive athleticism from size, moves well. Competed as a two-way player. Right-handed hitter, spread out base, squared neutral stance, rocks into back leg with leg lift, glides into front foot strike, short simple load. Handsy swing, used the whole field, LD/FB contact, good pop & carry off the bat with feel for barrel. Decent job staying back and adjusting. Pre-pitch hop, good timing. Above average athleticism for position, easy footwork. Ran a 7.32 60-yard dash. Natural big target with long wingspan. Fields the ball out in front in the center of his body with soft hands. Average arm strength across the diamond with lower intent at 75mph. Also worked out on the mound. Upper-body dominant delivery, 1B side of the rubber, small up & over leg kick, long stride, lands square with some early trunk rotation. Throws from a naturally higher release with long arm action, ¾ arm slot. FB was thrown with good extension with some natural ride through zone at times from higher release point, average movement profile, sat 81-84mph, topped out at 85mph. Low spin CV was thrown with 11/5 shape at 67-68mph, 1462rpm. CH has slight sink/run at 76-77mph. Body & athleticism should provide upside on both sides of the ball, should improve significantly on the mound. Development should be followed.
