10/7/18 - Central Coast Open - Uncommitted, 5-foot-9, 150-pounds though appears to be a bit taller and stronger than listed size, put together well with athletic and streamlined proportions.One of the fastest times at the even running a 7.06 60 yd dash on a slower surface. Hitting he showed a slightly open stance keeping even hands and a high back elbow. The hands work back while creating short leverage from a compact swing (82 MPH exit velo) that focuses on staying to the middle and oppo sides of the field. In the OF he flashed an above average arm (87 MPH) that was very quick and compact. His strong use of his body allows the ball to have quality carry that was online through the bases. Gets to the ball athletically and under control with good body control that allows him to be an accurate and consistent thrower.
Pitcher - Impressive on the mound as well and if only knew of him as a pitcher he certainly qualifies as an uncommitted left-handed pitcher to know of. Athletic delivery with rhythm and good arm speed. High-3/4 slot approaching overhand. Good direction and balance throughout. Aggressive stride given his height and that allows his stuff to play up nicely. Sling type arm action, clears front him well and is able to get his hand in great position at release point. Both fastball (83-85, T86 mph) and curveball (68-70 mph) had life and feel, fastball with run and ability to get to glove side as well, curveball with snap bite and tilt. Ability to bury that pitch and usable to right or left-handed hitters. Also showed a slider though the curveball is much better. Did not show a change-up. got around the slider release point, just threw it harder than the curveball but with less action and bite. If there is ever a usable change-up in his arsenal then he's got a shot to pitch quite effectively at the college level.
7/17/18 @ NCTB Upperclass tourney - Uncommitted, lean and athletic with good outfield range, strong arm with smooth mechanics and approach. Good verbal skills and aggressive going to get the ball. Ran well on bases, showed feel for playing the game. Good looking swing, ability to use the whole field and consistently stayed inside the ball. Good approach, that of a lead-off type, good plate discipline. Grinds out at-bats, finds way on base. On mound topped at 84 mph, sat near 82. Good change-up and used it well to set up his fastball. Breaking ball has bite and late sweeping action, used it for an out pitch quite well. Left-handed reader with quality pick-off move. He's a talented two-way player.
