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.
