6/22/20

Body: 5’11 185lbs; Athletic & Sturdy frame

Hit: Quiet and Balanced set up allows for controlled, compact violent swings. Leg kick initiates a hand hitch that helps him create hand/barrel speed. He uses ground his lower half and ground forces extremely well to put him in a position to launch from.

Power: 88 MPH Exit Velocity

Arm: 81 MPH Infield Velocity

Defense: Possibly the best part of his game. Showed polished actions not seen in many high school players. Used his strong lower half to gain leverage on the ground while fielding groundballs and had an accurate throwing arm during the workout. All of his actions are deliberate and concentrated.

Run: 7.15 60-Yard

Pitching

Delivery: Quick, athletic delivery powered by a strong lower half that gets deep into the ground. Back hip shows the ability to hold tension for an extremely long time until the body begins to unwind. Back foot becomes instable near peak leg lift causing the heel to peel off and energy to leak. 

Arm Action: Similar to the infield, the arm action is relatively short and very quick.  He gets into a clean scapula retraction which gets him set up to deliver the arm on time at foot strike. Arm comes through clean which allows for a healthy deceleration pattern.

FB: 81-83; Extremely high ride, plays up in zone

CH: 73-74; Pairs well with FB, solid speed & movement separation

CB: 65-67; Close to opposite spin direction, very good pair with FB

CT: 74-76; True cutter movement

10/20/18 - Los Angeles Open - Five-foot-10, 170-pounds, medium frame with strength throughout the frame. At the plate Heistand shows fast hands with strong feel for the barrel and the ability to drive the ball to all fields. Fast hands that he keeps inside the ball after dropping them into launch slot. Quick rotation with the hips/shoulders enhances the bat speed. At shortstop, Heistand shows fair range to both sides and possesses soft hands with clean exchanges. Throwing motion can get a little long, but possesses enough arm strength to make throws from multiple angles. Footwork is fluid with fair range to both sides. Instinctive defender who gets rid of the ball quickly. On the mound Heistand shows a clean, loose arm from a high-3/4 slot. Delivery is deliberate through to an out front release point. Fastball shows some life as it enters the zone. Shows command of the pitch. Curveball is a sharp, late biting pitch with 12/6 shape. Command of the pitch was erratic. Changeup shows late movement back to the arm side and shows fair command of the pitch. Slider looks a lot like his curveball but with downer break and movement.
