1/27/19 - PBR N CA Preseason All-State  - Full XL frame with current strength and long arms/legs and wide chest; agile with athleticism in frame and ability to get long legs moving quickly (7.59 60-yd). Consistently shows projectable skills with strong mesurables in very big and athletic frame that still hasn’t reached full maturity. Wide target with quickness in transition and ability to use long legs to gain ground while being under control; arm is compact and has a quick release regularly able to keep the ball on the arm side of the bag (1.98-2.08 pop, 74 MPH). Very soft glove hand and ability to be athletic behind the plate with quickness to block and recover. Slight crouch with wide, even hands and flared elbows; big knee tuck keeps him behind the baseball as hands stay in place during load. Quick and easy turns allowing bat to get on plane and showing loft with flashes of big, future power; loud bat has quickness and regularly does damage driving balls deep into gaps (92 exit velo).

10/7/18 - Central Coast Open Showcase - 6-foot-5, 225-pounds, continues to show intriguing tools and athleticism with a clearly noticeable body type. 7.54 60 yd dash not notable for smaller player but is for chiseled player his size. Offensively keeps a tall stance while having low, quiet hands. He keeps his hands tight to the body showing a foot lift before creating bad speed with his quick hands that work uphill showing leverage and being able to drive through the ball while staying balanced (87 MPH exit velo). Strength shows in his swing with the ability to drive balls deep into the pull side gap with flashes of raw power. From behind the plate he works in time with a quick, compact arm (73 MPH) that regularly puts the ball on the bag by utilizing quick transitions (2.0-2.07 Pop times). His body is athletic and showed the ability to smother the ball before smoothly transitioning from blocking to recovery. Sets up big behind plate, soft and strong hands, big paws can swallow up the pitch and stick it, size of body and hands brings Salvador Perez to mind. Not just big, he's quite athletic.

8/25/18 - N. California Underclass Games - 6-foot-4, 225-pounds, long and strong and certainly a noticeable body. Good leg strength with long legs. Strength comes out in his offensive game. Tall set-up, fairly short stride with good balance. Short swing with a quick bat that produces good pop. Has the the look of a hitter who can control the barrel with limited swing and miss and also produce extra base hits. Ball leaves his bat quite well and it doesn’t take a lot of effort for that to happen. Stays on a line drive swing plane. Worked middle of the field in game at-bats, resulting in a hard hit single to centerfield in one at-bat. Defensively he has a good arm that works for the catcher position, though it’s not a plus arm. Despite big frame his feet work well and he gets throws off quickly with consistently low pop times and was generally accurate around the bag. Showed heady nature as a player during game action and plays the game aggressively. Overall he’s performed well during a few summer viewings and is rising among 2020 catching prospects in Northern California.

7/27/18 @ NCTB underclass tourney - XL frame with long, muscular legs and arms; long frame moves well and showing present strength throughout. Stands tall with a wide base and even hands; small leg kick helps keep weight behind baseball and body in time. Compact swing with loft and plus raw power (91 exit velo); stays on time with FB well and ability to adjust to off-speed and use large body to go down and get the lower pitches. Ended up with 4 HR’s and multiple extra base hits during week event. Showed quick release from average arm behind the plate during testing; 2.03-2.06 Pop times with ball regularly on the bag. Showed off catching ability in game with couple caught stealing, but think long term home of 1B due to size. Not going to be a base stealer (7.48 60-yd), but runs well under way with long legs able to move quickly and can go 1st to 3rd or score from home. /// Big strong kid who will continue to get stronger.  Receives and blocks well.  Exchange is clean and throws to 2nd base were right on line around 2.1 with Avg Footwork. Offensively, he is a free swinger with home run pop.  Needs to clean up his stride and load to deliver a more balanced swing but there is plenty to work with with this player.

6/1/18 - 6/3/18 @ BAWS 2018 - Big and noticeable body, looks fairly physically mature at 6-foot-4 225-pounds. Wide stance with lower hands and leg lift timing; average hand speed with ability to use physical frame to do damage on ball. Very loud bat with leverage creating raw pull power; times where bat can be long. Average arm plays up with quick transitions and ability to get rid of ball (1.94-2.22); average blocker and stiffer wrist. Physical runner with longer stride.
