Notes

Comments

7/07/21

Body: 5-8, 160-pounds. Smaller athletic build with more to come. Good athletic and baseball feel.
Delivery: Understands how to pitch; repeatable leg kick and arm action highlighting his ability. Keep his delivery simple with intent to fill up the zone.
Arm Action: RH. Arm action showing a tick in speed and consistency. Velocity up and staying up with more to come.
FB: T80, 78-80 mph. Fastball showed some sink and dive that will be most effective on the corners.
CB: 62-65 mph. Showed good feel for the curveball. Flipped the pitch over with ease and the low velocity will make this a tough pitch to time when located properly.
CH: 66-68 mph. The changeup is key to pitching success. Low spin and desirable velocity differential project this pitch to garner the most outs and create the most swings and misses. Continued development needed.

7/07/21

Body: 5-8, 160-pounds. Smaller athletic build with more to come. Good athletic and baseball feel.
Hit: RHH. Upright and even stance, using a leg kick trigger to get to his hitting position. Showed good hand speed for class with 24.20 and bat speed at 64.04.  Very pull happy in part because of his hand speed and his desire to pull the ball. Power potential regardless of size makes this a bat to watch down the line.
Power: 88.00 max exit velocity
Arm: RH. INF - 81.00 mph. Quick arm action with a repeatable arm swing. Arm strength with a significant velocity jump of 9 mph in 9 months. Accuracy on point and sustainable.
Defense: Understands positioning and first step actions. Lacking the shortstop next level explosiveness but currently possesses whats need to perform at the high school level.
Run: 7.42 runner in the 60. 

10/11/20

Body: 5-7, 160-pounds. Smaller athletic build with plenty of room to fill out.
Hit: RH. Upright and straight up with feet in stance. Uses a leg kick trigger as the barrel tips slightly towards the pitcher. At footstrike, the foot lands slightly closed.  Smooth stroke that works on a flat-uphill path (78% on plane efficiency). Lower half moves well. Contact is out in front with a pullside approach. 
Power: 87 mph exit velocity. Present pullside gap power. Rotational acceleration average of 15gs and max of 22 gs show potential for a decent power ceiling. 
ArmRH. INF - 72 mph. Quick whippy arm action. Velo isn't there but is quick to release. Might profile better at 2B. All throws were accurate in his workout. 
DefenseDecent defensive actions. Light bouncy feet. Fielded low to the ground and out in front. Clean and quick glove exchanges. 
Run7.41 runner in the 60. 

DeliverySimple quick delivery. Uses a medium knee tuck. Drifts forward with not much dip into the rear leg. Doesn't get too extended with his stride. Front leg is in line with home and is in a good fielding position at finish. 
Arm Action: RH. Longer arm action that comes through at the H 3/4 slot. Arm accelerates as soon as it gets above the shoulder. Slots all of his pitches the same but slower armspeeds on SL/CH. 
FBT77, 73-76 mph. Comfortable locating it to all quadrants. 
SL: 61-64 mph. Located it well down in the zone. At times flashed decent bite. 
CH66-68 mph. Late fading action to the armside.
