Defense:  Premier play in right field; plus-first step, tracked a line drive, dove to his left along the foul line, full extension grab, robbed a would be extra-base hit.
Arm: LH.  OF - 75 mph. Average arm, consistent throwing mechanics from the outfield, uses his lower body well to generate drive, chance for more down the line. 
Hit: LHH. Blast Motion data shows average metrics for his class. Metrics to watch; 60.1 mph bat speed coupled with a rotational acceleration of 13.5 g projects well for a power increase.  TrackMan line drive averages; 82.3 mph exit velocity - 20.2° launch angle - 280.2 ft. 
Power: 85 mph exit velocity from the tee. 
Run: 7.54 runner in the 60. 

Delivery: Noticeable delivery difference since June 2020 showing is that Forbus lands more evenly with his body and inline with home plate, where as he previously worked more across his body. 
Arm Action: LH. Significant velocity gain in two month span; fastball averaged 72-73 mph in June 2020 and averaged 76-77 mph in August 2020. 
FB: T78, 76-77 mph. 60% of pitches thrown, 1804 spin average, 10:45 Tilt, induced vertical break 14.6 (50th percentile) average run and horizontal break -11.5 (35th percentile) above-average cut. 
CB: 17% of pitches thrown, 1924 spin average, 2:30 tilt. Commanded the pitchl low and away to right-handed hitters. 
SL: 67-68 mph. 12% of pitches thrown, 1833 spin average, 12:45 tilt. Developmental pitch, broke more like a cutter, helped differentiate from curveball. 
CH: 10% of pitches thrown, 1675 spin rate average, 11:30 tilt. Looks very similar to fastball, induced vertical break almost identical to fastball. Pitch needs to be utilized more. 

6/20/20

Body: 5’10” - 150lbs; Twitch and Athleticism

Hit: Short level swing with a simple approach. Keeps hands low and looks to make solid contact. Spray chart indicated an even mix of ground balls and fly balls with the majority of batted balls to right-center but showed the ability to hit the other way. Averaged 13° launch angle degree. 

Power: 74 mph median exit velocity, 84 mph maximum exit velocity

Arm: 73 mph outfield exit velocity

Field: The only outfielder that showed true feel and knowledge of proper crow-hop outfield fielding mechanics. Maximizes his arm strength and command of his throws to third and home plate. Consistently 73 mph from the outfield. Good footwork helped him gather himself and set his feet correctly. 

Run: 7.50 60-Yard

Pitching:

Delivery: Quality left-hander with funk to his delivery, high leg kick with speed, drives down the mound well with quality extension. Steps across his body well, overall hides the ball well helping play up his fastball and deception on his off-speed pitches. Releases from a fairly consistent ¾ arm slot. Change-up is above average for his age, moves very similar to his fastball with ideal speed differential giving the pitch great down the line prospects. 

Arm Action: Arm works at an average clip with potential for me. Deception is his best asset helping play up his pitches. Hopeful velocity jump could put this left-hander on the division 1 radar. 

FB: 72-74 mph, 1709 median spin rate - 1846 maximum spin rate 

CH: 63-65 mph, 1683 median spin rate - 1686 maximum spin rate 

CB: 63-65 mph, 1937 median spin rate - 2082 maximum spin rate
