Body: 5-10, 175-pounds. Medium athletic frame. Compact upper half. Filling out in his shoulders. Strength present throughout.
Hit: LHH. Relaxed open set up. Hands are back and active. Leg lift trigger that gets brought into backside. Gets hinged into the back hip and internally rotates as he starts his forward move. Whippy and handsy stroke with + bat speed (78 mph max, 73 mph average). More of a level path that creates some natural lift. More of a pullside approach in BP.
Power: 100 max exit velocity. Some pullside HR power is there. Had the farthest HR in BP for the event crushing one 400ft. Combination of +bat speed (73 mph average) and +rotational acceleration (23 gs average) give him a great power ceiling.
Arm: LH.  OF - 91 mph. Above average arm strength. Compact arm circle in the back that is quick to release. Present armside tail. Real nice carry. 6/6 accurate.
Defense: Controlled actions. Stutter steps to set up a clean rhythm when fielding. Clean at gloving the ball. Takes extra steps after fielding it to get as much as he can on the throw. Showed good first steps during game action and tracked down some difficult balls.
Run: 6.88 runner in the 60.

Stands confident, trusts his abilities, and as he fills out all of his 5-foot-10 frame, with room to grow and get stronger, it’s pretty clear that he will compete at a high level at the next level of the game, first in college and then beyond.

60 yd: Ran a sub-7.0 in the 60 and came out of the starting line low and arms moving in unison to stride. Explosiveness from the beginning, through the finish line and beyond. His set up to run was aggressive, fluid, and his control of his body is a telling sign how he plays on the field.

OF Def: Never slowing his feet down and anticipating the ball coming off the bat, his first step to attack the ball is elite, his rhythm, timing of hops, plus a strong last step through the ball makes for accurate and strong throws. He keeps his line on delivery of the ball, head stays in the same position for stability, and the ball jumps out of his hand. Accuracy with arm strength will make him a plus outfielder.

Hitting: Left-handed hitter, stepped in the box with a solid pre-routine to get his mind focused. He has an athletic, balanced stance with a bat waggle for timing then it happens, leg lift slow and in control with timing to get the barrel out front and attack pitches. At foot drop his hands were ready to fire to the ball and really have the ability to hit to all fields with good angle attack and confidence balls jumped to all fields.

Summary: Confident player that seems to play with no fear. The sound of the bat and the speed at which he plays will be exciting to see him play and develop at the next level.

vs Granada HS - San Diego State commit; smaller frame with strength on athletic build, some early season timing struggles at the plate in this one but continues to show outstanding ability to recognize strikes and lay off borderline pitches, will not chase, ran 4.36 on well-struck ball misplayed by 2nd baseman, easy quick stroke, short to it, will jump some pitches produce power in spots but it's a high level of hitability to all fields that stands out.

CHG 70-74 showed late bottom flashing above average when allowing the pitch to work; times where he will choke it and overthrow.

Offensively works from open slightly crouched stance utilizing foot lift for timing; times where back foot lifts to readjust body before starting front leg lift. Wide hands stay high before loading down and back into shoulder; bat has some late whip through the zone with ability to spray ball through oppo side of the field or stay closed and drive ball into pull gap. Athletic runner getting out of the box quickly with quick feet getting down line (4.32 H-1st). Defensively showed ability to play OF and 1B with athletic body being able to make plays in each spot. Arm is above average from both spots and really shines on the mound.

8/25/18

PBR N CA Underclass Games - 5-foot-9, 160-pounds, athletically put together, appropriate strength given his age, moved on the field with confidence and baseball type actions, looked to be a legitimate two-way player at this stage of his development and should continue to compete as a position player and pitcher. During batting practice displayed a tall set-up and open stance, short swing, has makings of some pull-side pop. Stayed back on change-up well in game competition for a solid single. Defensively the ball came out of his hand quite well up to 79 mph. Fielded the ball cleanly and set up well to get rid of throws. Size may eventually move him to the outfield where his arm would play well. On the mound he did a lot of good things. High-3/4 slot, athletic delivery, shallow backside arm action before getting to a bit of a goalpost takeaway, quiet head throughout delivery. Worked with a slower tempo. Fastball control was good, has a little bit of run but mostly straight. Best pitch was curveball which at times had good spin and action, while other times was loose, basically indicating some inconsistencies in his release point. Used that pitch well in a backdoor manner to right-hand hitters. Struck out 3 of 4 batters he faced. Good 2022 follow for sure.

7/27/18
