Notes

Comments

11/07/21

Body: 6-0, 170-pounds. Mature build, proportional throughout, some present strength with room for more.
Hit: RHH. Wide stance with athletic bend in knees, low hands, quick to the ball, two-hand finish. Blast Motion scores of 36-49-36. Low plane and rotation scores are helped by top 5 event hand and bat speed. Singled and walked during live at-bats.
Power: 96.00 max exit velocity. Topped at 96 mph off the bat for a 335 ft batting practice homerun.
Arm: RH. OF - 85.00 mph. Arm showed well from the outfield, got on top of the ball, used his momentum and got his body behind the throw. Fairly accurate showing, can hit the cut from the fence. Picked off a runner while pitching.
Defense: Capable outfielder that could play all three outfield spots at the high school level thanks to foot and arm speed.
Run: 7.16 runner in the 60. 

Delivery: Stands confident on the mound, keeps his body tight before throwing separation, sits on back leg and drives off the rubber.
Arm Action: RH. High arm angle, finishes in front well, follow through speed shows velo jump potential.
FB: T84, 82-84 mph. Fastball plays straight with some run, low spin makes this an effective groundball inducing pitch down in the zone. 
CB: 68-72 mph. True 12/6 curveball, hitters did not look comfortable in the box, slider or cutter development would really help his overall off-speed repertoire and play up his curveball even more. 
CH: 73-74 mph. Solid velocity and spin differential. Staying closed and keeping front side intact needed to keep this pitch consistent and thrown with command. 

9/18/21

Body: 6-0, 170-pounds. Proportional build with present athleticism enabling his true two-way ability.
Hit: RHH. Wide hitting setup, low hands, simple step to load, one-hand finish. Swing looked at its best when driving the ball to centerfield. Rotation gains could increase power now and in the future.  Blast Motion scores of 30-61-30. Connection score highlights his above-average feel for hitting alignment and ability to get in a good position to hit. Displayed his hitting alignment with a crisp single in his first live at-bat.
Power:  93 mph max exit velocity, 
Arm: RH. OF - 79.00 mph. Quality high-school arm; sitting comfortably in the low 80s on the mound, 79 mph from the outfield, displayed accuracy with his throws 4/5.
Defense: Showed good feel in the outfield;  first step actions and reads, clean ball to glove to release, consistent throws.
Run: 7.10 runner in the 60. 

Delivery: Simple and repeatable, stays compact, closed with parts moving towards home plate, consistent follow-through. Starters mechanics, at times almost threw to many strikes, will give his team quality starts. 
Arm Action: RH. Arm works from a high release point with speed throughout, shows signs of almost a certain velocity gain sooner than later.
FB: T84, 79-84 mph. Filled up the zone to both sides of the plate, lived on the glove side part of the zone, 58% of the pitches thrown. Average 19.7 Induced vertical break, which puts him in the 93rd percentile with 'extreme ride'.
CB: 65-69 mph. Flipped over 17 curveballs with consistency and command, locating the majority of the pitches to the bottom half of the zone, left a few in the zone that got hit but not hard. Feel and location of the pitch really stood out and puts him immediately in the high school starter category for the 2022 season.
CH: Showed a changeup with good speed and spin differential from the fastball. Pitch has potential and should be used more. Armside run and fade makes this a developmental pitch that could get him through the lineup a third time.
