6/06/21

Bay Area World Series Underclass (6/4/21-6/6/21)

Offensive notes: RH: Slight open stance with hands pulling back on slight crunch. Quick hands able to drive the backside and lets hands do the work driving balls through the pull-side gap.

LH: Similar stance with less movements and more usage of the hands in the swing. The quick bat is still there a bit more direct than RH. In game was regular on pitches and worked deep counts. Wasn't willing to chase outside the zone. Constantly ran out to be a runner in pinch-runner situations on all three days, displayed big time joy for the game. 60-yard - 7.24 / EV mph - 87

Defensive notes: Strong prep and ability to bounce off landing for first step actions. Utilizes his length well with strong footwork and ablitity to control the frame and funnel to the middle. Arm was accurate and played up in games with a quicker release. Made plays with good range in games and can fit at MIF for long term. INF mph - 73
