1/08/22

Positional Profile: SS/RHP
Body: 6-0, 170-pounds. Lean, athletic, high-waisted build. Projectable. Room to add gains.
Hit: RHH. Slightly open stance with barrel rested at the shoulder. Loads slow and early into a mild leg kick trigger. Hands load back and pinch into scap. Bat gets in a good early connection position and work level into the zone with good extension through at finish. Stayed middle of the field throughout his round. 
Power: 85.00 max exit velocity, Bat speed and rotational acceleration are both above average for his level. Current LD singles power but should project for more as he gets older and stronger.
Arm: RH. INF - 79.00 mph. 4/6 accurate throws during the defensive workout. Above-average arm strength for level. Short arm action. Offline throws were short to the bag.

Power: 84.00 max exit velocity. 67.3 mph max bat speed and 18.7 gs rotational acceleration for his age/level are above average and look to tick up as he gets stronger. Will be hitting the ball to the wall and over sooner rather than later.
Arm: RH. INF - 76.00 mph. Above average arm strength for his level. 5/6 accurate during the defensive workout. Slightly low 3/4 slot on most throws but showed the ability to mix up slots when needed. Comfortable throwing on the run.
