Bay Area World Series 2020 (BAWS) - Uncommitted at the time of this event/report; Among the top uncommitted SS in the region, the arm and glove skills are above average for the SS position, run tool is improving, just a bit more physical development and the bat talent/production will match the sound stroke and mechanics.

PBR CA STATE GAMES - Athletically built medium frame with the length projecting added growth. Future shortstop with the current skills available and space to keep growing into full blown tools. Defensive skills show up with strong footwork producing range and the ability to move in time with the baseball; made multiple outstanding plays on the move. Arm fits the left side with quick release and growing strength; ability to get rid of the ball and keep it on the bag. At the plate stays tall slightly opened with high hands; direct barrel with flat path for consistent contact and high-average type of hitter. Projects very well for the next level with more growth as he continues to mature.

PBR Bay Area Open - Pitching: Long and lean body type on his 5-foot-9, 140-pound frame, lanky proportions and good physical projectability, given that he continues to grow taller. Polished delivery, particularly for a rising sophomore. Fluid delivery, consistent rhythm, easy lift and good timing of hand separation relative to getting down the slope. Overhand slot, long stride, consistent foot strike. Does a good job keeping fingers above the ball and creating angle on all his pitches. The arm works smooth and easy and produces the 76-78 mph fastball with minimal effort. Future velocity projection is pretty easy to make.. to what level, that will be determined by size and strength, but the arm action and delivery are in place. Depth of 11/5 curveball (60-65 mph) with big enough shape to dive below bats. Confidence in change-up (66-68 mph) was clear and feel of the pitch matched his confidence. Advanced feel of his three-pitch mix to go with a polished delivery.

BAY AREA OPEN - INFIELD

Long medium frame, lean and compact with projectable build; athletic and smooth getting to full speed quickly (7.88 60yd). Tall, slightly opened stance with high hands; balanced staying behind the baseball with controlled foot lift and hands working slightly back. Compact swing with barrel getting quick turn before slightly upwards path through the zone showing full two hand finish; line drives through the middle with some lift projecting more extra-base hits as he matures and strengthens (76 EV). Glove was solid with the ability to make adjustments out in front as he maintained strong angles through the baseball; range is good with the ability to expand as speed improves. Loose compact arm able to make the throws including deep into the hole; plays well on the run also (81 MPH). Quick release made to be at Shortstop position. Projectable frame with strong base actions that can continue to develop in the middle of the field. 2022 to follow.
