vs Clayton Valley - Santa Clara signee; At 6-foot-2 189-pounds he has a build like that of an athletic basketball guard.. which he is. Had an under the radar quality game for the Bulldogs. His best tool has been his speed and ability to make contact and put pressure on the defense and in this one he did just that. He forced an error on the 1st baseman in his first at-bat, beat out a slow chopper to 3rd base in his fourth AB and reached on another error (E6) in his fifth AB. Ran 4.39-4.42 down the line, which isn't blazing, but he's gaining speed down the line and with his effort it was quite clear that the defense was affected. At 6-foot-2 189-pounds he has a build like that of an athletic basketball guard.. which he is.

6-foot-2, 170-pounds, lean and athletic with strength and some twitch. Athlete’s build, plays varsity basketball as well. Toolsy player with good metrics and also gaining polish that is showing up in game competition. Tested well with the top exit speed of the event (92 mph), showed balance at the plate during BP, starts in a crouch with wide feet, good extension, bat speed is there and he projects to develop gap to gap pop. Made plus contact in both game at-bats, once on single to left field and then a deep F7 that was hit well. Offensively he’s got tools to be a standout in the 2020 class in Northern California. Defensively he’s got arm strength and projects to have an above average arm, gets rid of the ball well and with his overhand slot his throws stay on-line and have some carry. Overall his tools rate well, including speed, which shows up much better underway and in a straight line 60-yard dash vs his out of the box home to first time. Athlete who is turning into a baseball player.

NCTB Upperclass Tourney - Two reports submitted by different scouts: Good compact swing. Two line drives, one to left and one to left-center. Above average runner. Tall and lengthy, projectable body with projectable tools. /// Young body with medium build, sneaky strong and explosive for his size. One of the top hitters of the day, hitting three firm line drives to both alleys on the field with backspin and carry, his line drives did not want to touch the ground.  Fundamentally sound approach in the lower half with a firm and stable back leg; one of the best approaches of the day among all hitters at event. Hand path extremely efficient, allows the track of his barrel to match the track of the ball.  Ready to drive the ball when he steps in the box. Excellent speed, 8.5 seconds home to 2nd base with a turn, stretched a double into a triple on a ball he drove to the left-center gap.

BAWS 2018 - Long and sinewy athletic build on 6-foot-2 170-pound streamlined body. Highly athletic and twitchy player. Crouched stance with high back elbow and flat bat; front foot up and down for timing before quick hands with level path. Can let ball get deep and drive to opposite field. There is life in the swing and strength that happens naturally. Strong ability to stay behind ball on throws from outfield; ball is firm and straight showing carry. Better runner underway with longer stride; 4.4ish home to first, can get from 1st to 3rd and score from 2nd on plays most players can't. Athleticism that can translate to high level baseball ability with this multi-sport player.

6/26/17

BAWS 2017 - Lean and wiry 5-foot-11 150-pound athlete, DeCelle is a very young and competitive ballplayer with visible level raw athleticism, he rose to the level around him (he was one of two 2020 grads at BAWS 2017), has hands that certainly work at the plate though he can tend to force his swing inside-out, takes his hacks and looks to be a tough out, as he fills out and strength comes there will be gap to gap pop, his 60 time projects some quick twitch fiber that allows for favorable projectability, showed strong accuracy on outfield throws, release and trajectory will need to improve.
