Event: NorCal ProCase
Positional Profile: SS/RHP
Physical: 5-foot-11, 180-pounds; avg size frame, some width to shoulders, strong with good body control through aggressive actions
Delivery: Stays tall in his smaller frame, clean and quick.
Arm Action: Hides ball until last second, ball jumps out of his hand, reaches back and throws at a
FB: T90.4 mph, 87.1 -  89.3 mph range, 2273 avg spin; high spin and feels like it’s rising especially with a lower throwing height. Spin gives it plenty of life at the top of the zone.
CH: 81.8 - 82.9 mph, 2054 avg spin; Late break with repeated arm path to other pitches.
SL: 74.5 - 75.3 mph, 1783 avg spin; Good drop and control, big speed difference off of fastball and CH; Freezes hitters.

Offensively: RH. EV max – 91.2 mph, hand speed max – 20.1 mph, bat speed max – 67.9 mph; Bat rests slightly above shoulders and coiled. Up the middle in BP. short stride; Minor weight transfer concern with a good bit of it ending back on the right leg.
Defensively: INF Velo – 77 mph; quick hands and release. Covers a lot of ground towards target. Made a backhand throw swiftly without a crow hop to first.

Event: Fresno Preseason ID
Positional Profile
: RHP/SS
Physical
: 5-10, 172-pounds; 4.13 30-yard, 26.1” max jump height; Lean strength throughout, well-proportioned build with visible strength in legs, average size frame.
Delivery: Small rhythmic foot pitter patter at the start, easy lift just above waist, hands separate off the chest, stride down and out into in-line stride while landing firm and closed, has strong timing and rhythm between hands and feet, powerful move down the slope, early engage of back leg knee and stays into it with stability over the rubber, full finish of back hip through while swinging leg around toward 1st base line.
Arm Action: Loose quick arm, smooth on backside with some inversion as hand is at waist depth with elbow staying below shoulder height, clean arm with no restrictions, gets to high-3/4 release, full deceleration.
FB: T88.4 mph, 87-88 mph range, 2467 max spin; Hot FB while maintaining velo throughout the session, has the look of a FB he will want to challenge hitters with and often up in zone, front side stability did lead to some yanking to glove side, release height and spin both suggest the FB is one that is going to get chases up in zone.
CB: 66.7-67.7 mph, 2717 max spin; Big two plane breaker with tight spin and quick break, release gets a bit higher on CB vs FB look.
SL: 72-73.8 mph, 2375 max spin; Quick break, late break out of zone as a chase pitch, also presents as a slider he can use going in the front door to RHH, trusts it and has feel, presents better off his FB than the CB does given the same release height and feel for the zone.
CHG: 79-81 mph, 2186 avg spin; Release presents well off FB/SL combo, still developing feel for consistent release as he was up in zone more often than not, there is big arm side movement potential.

Offensively: RH. EV max – 91.4 mph, hand speed max – 19.6 mph, bat speed max – 67.1 mph; Off the plate deep in the box, slightly open with feet just outside shoulders, early barrel tilt with hands off body over the back knee at shoulder height, slight crouch, smooth gliding stride with some length, closes off stride, smaller load straight back, some length on backside before getting into the zone, stiffens legs at contact, has power and ability to create bat speed, two hand finish with barrel below hands, had a number of balls hit over 90 mph, mechanics suggest an ability to handle the ball away and drive ball the opposite way with some power.
Defensively: SS – 81 mph; Low into crouch before a small prep hop, feet shoulder width in pre-pitch set-up, stable lower half, stays below ball well on plays to each direction, fields ball cleanly off the body, footwork allows him to get ball out quickly without efficient footwork.
