4/05/22

vs Rodriguez HS - Uncommitted; Three outstanding plate appearances, has simple approach to hit fastball strikes early in the count, quick trigger, has high level feel for the barrel, simple stroke produces easy well above average bat speed and exit speeds, impact extra base hit ability, plays a sound 1st base. The game hitting matches up with what he's shown in showcase and workout settings which clearly bodes well for the bat to continue to play beyond HS.

7/16/21

Body: 6-1, 230-pounds. Sturdier build. Strong upper half. Moves well for size.
Hit: RHH. Slightly open in stance with hands even and tight to body that stay neutral throughout the load. Slight lean into backside as his foot gets down early. Simple compact stroke for a bigger guy. Hands stay tight to body throughout the swing. Level swing path. Above average bat speed of 69 mph average and 74.8 max. 1 HR during BP round. Barrelled some balls during game action, specifically two long flyballs to center that died in the wind right in front of the warning track. 
Power: 99 max exit velocity
Arm: RH. INF - 79 mph. Decent arm strength for a 1B at his level. Shorter arm action allows for quicker release. 4/5 accurate throws during defensive workout.
Defense:  Solid actions around the bag making several picks during defensive workout. Decent feet for size. Can field on the move.
Run: 8.08 runner in the 60.

2/06/21

Body6-0, 220-pounds. Large, wide and thick frame. Strength present in the frame and plenty of time to tighten the frame.
HitRHH. Slightly opened, even hands high back elbow setup; small kick allowing him to rotate around back hip and sink into back hip. Great balance and rotation from the body with strong posture. Powerful upward path with plenty of strength behind swings. Ball jumps off the barrel when he's working his best with easy pullside power and gap carry. Feel for the barrel and ability to see and hit pitches in game play. 22.3 gs Max Rotational Acceleration, 75.2 Max Batspeed, 22.7 Handspeed, 56% On Plane Efficiency, 88.9% Line Drive/Fly Ball %
Power97.10 mph exit velocity.
ArmRH. INF - 65.00 mph. Shorter arm, limited carry and times where he cuts it. Can make throws to 2nd.
DefenseGood actions while on the bag helping INF with throws and showing some ability to work the bag. Can get off the bag and get to the ball.
Run8.09 runner in the 60.

7/28/20

Positional Profile: 1B/3B - One of legitimate power threats in 2023 class in the region.
Body: 6-0, 220-pounds. Sizeable and powerful body.
Defense: Light feet, soft hands, has feel for playing defense, works well below the ball, works bag quite well.
Arm: RH. INF - 76 mph. Clean arm, accurate and confident thrower, quality arm for 1st base, arm would also play at 3rd base.
Hit: RHH. Hitterish setup, slightly open out of crouch, powerful hand slot, quiet w/outstanding timing mechanisms. Physical hitter, routinely loud barrel contact, early pitch recognition and sees pitches in his damage zones. Outstanding stroke. 60% fly ball %, 60% hard hit rate, avg 91.34 exit velo.
Power: 94 mph exit velocity.
Run: 8.39 runner in the 60.

6/06/20
PBR NORTHERN CA UNDERCLASS GAMES

Body: 6-foot-0, 220-pounds. Thick powerful frame, short levers that are good for hitting
Hit: RHH. Wide base at set-up, very slightly open, calm and efficient swing actions, short stride w/powerful hip rotation, works well from the ground up to generate power, short powerful stroke that gets him direct to the ball & creates outstanding/consistent impact at contact, gets barrel into the zone quickly and accelerates it with plus bat speed, patient disciplined approach in sim game ABs, drove LCF gap for double & laced a single through the middle. Profiles as an impact bat in a run-producing spot in the line-up.
Power: 92 mph EV off tee
Arm: 1B velo - 70 mph (R) - Quick confident snap throws, arm works easily if not all that powerfully, accurate feeds to the bags
Defense: Light bouncy feet, very confident with the glove, agility is quite good, soft hands and efficient actions around the bag, though the range may never be average or above he looks like he will cleanly handle all he gets to and be a quality defender at 1st base. With a bit more arm he could even make a run at playing 3rd with those good feet of his.
Run: 8.21 60-yard

8/17/19

PBR CA STATE GAMES - Full build with wide shoulders in large frame; extra weight that can be shaped as he matures and strengthens. High hands balanced stance was very quiet with simple toe lift and shift in weight back; stays balanced through contact using legs well. Bat has quick turn getting on plane and working upwards through the zone; ball jumped off his bat all weekend as he wore out the gaps with multiple XBH’s. As he matures that gap-to-gap bat will continue to develop strength and add pop. Showed fair bag awareness at 1st and short range at 3rd; will need to focus on his athleticism to find a defensive position. If he continues to hit the way he did during this weekend position won’t matter as much.
