USA PDP workout - UC Irvine commit. Awesome power display in BP, loft power with balls landing well beyond wall and onto concourse in left field at Banner Island Ballpark (home of Stockton Ports in Cal League). Bat speed is a plus attribute, truly physical with the bat, long swing and aggressive, loud echo type man power, keeps hands away from body and gets good separation, fairly direct to the ball and long through contact, would like to see how the approach and power plays in the high school season. Strong arm in the field, adequate feet and glove talent. On mound pitched exclusively from stretch, overhand slot, loose arm, slight cross body stride, some drift down the slope before hands separate, short backside, lacked consistent finish, would be better with a longer stride and earlier separation while staying behind the ball longer, sneaky fastball even in 85-86 range, lots of fastballs up, big 12/6 curveball. Change-up left up with floating action. Did pitch effectively in three batter outing (6-3 CB, F2 FB inside, backward K) as he faced three of the regions top hitters (Carter, Hill, Hormel).

vs Oakmont HS - UC Irvine commit; Big long and strong, looks like power pitcher in mold of Kyle Farnsworth body type; Came on to close the game for Buchanan and the big, long and strong right-hander came out with a 89-91 mph fastball and was aggressive in using it. It's straight but had some length through the zone and he showed the ability to elevate it just enough. Curveball is slow 71 mph and really just a show pitch at this point, but he did show it and it helps the FB play up. Loose arm, strong arm, deep backside arm action with some inverted elbow. He also had a two out hit in the top of the 7th on a 78 mph slider that kep the inning going and eventually that led to the winning run for Buchanan. Has PLENTY of raw power but the raw hit tool doesn't allow for much usable power.
