SoCal ProCase:

Body: 6-foot 3, 205 pounds. Mature build with present physicality. Solid base with room to add healthy mass in all areas. Stands out amongst players of the same age. 

Hit: Neutral set up to start with medium high hands. Small, quick leg kick to initiate the swing with a slight hand hitch before beginning rotation. Barrel turn is tight to start and gets longer as rotation continues. Head stays quiet throughout the swing and gets into the lower half well, hands can get laggy at times. Intent behind each swing. 

Power: Peak Exit velo of 103 MPH via Trackman in batting practice rounds. Power is currently present when he finds the barrel with potential to all fields. 

Field: Showed well in the outfield during his defensive workout. Attacked the ball with conviction and had smooth transfers. Footwork was clean and showed some rhythm to it. With continued development, projects as a CF at the next level due to speed + athleticism. 

Arm: Topped at 84 MPH during his defensive workout. Semi long arm stroke that gets up on time and produces some carry to his ball. Plays at all OF positions. 

Run: Ran a laser timed 6.6 60 yard dash. Long, explosive strides that gain ground quickly. 

Summary: If you are a college coach or evaluator for an MLB scouting department, Cooper Whitton is a name you are going to want to keep an eye on as we get closer to the 2022 draft. With a combination of speed, size and body awareness not often seen amongst high school prospects, he could easily see himself as a helium type guy if he can put up the in-game numbers to back the tools he currently possesses. While he may be raw in some areas of his game, it is impossible not to get excited about the skill set this kid possesses and what that could potentially look like a few years down the road. It will be interesting to see where he ends up making an impact at the next level.

Body: 6-3, 205-pounds. Pro build, size illuminates 6.6 speed, room for more.
Defense: Size and development give him flexibility, outfield likely with centerfield at the next level being an option, in a good position athletically to play in multiple spots. 
Arm: RH.  OF - 84 mph. Arm works, some stiffness in the back, outfield projection with potential on the corners.
Hit: RHH. Athletic base, active hands, strong rotation, two-hand finish. Blast Motion scores of 55-71-69 show extremely well; the most projectable scores are above-average making him a top 5 uncommitted player in the county. 100.28 exit speed max comes to no surprise with multiple batting practice home runs and 368 max distance.
Power: 100 mph exit velocity. 
Run: 6.6 runner in the 60. 

10/11/20

Defense: Good size for corner outfield spots, name to watch in the outfield. 
Arm: RH.   OF - 80 mph. Quality outfield arm, short arm swing, on target throws.
Hit: RHH. Strong build and approach, swing worked at its best in the middle of the field, rotated well on inside pitches. Blast Motion scores of 49/64/51. Solid across the board with his connection score highlighting his swing as he gets in a really good position to hit allowing for solid contact. 
Power: 95 mph exit velocity. 
Run: 6.63 runner in the 60.
