9/07/20

Bay Area World Series 2020 (BAWS) - Uncommitted; Long rangy athlete, the offensive talent shows up now & will shine brighter w/physical strength gains. Drives ball in middle of field while staying short and controlled to contact. Deft defensive skills at 1st base also w/corner OF talents. 

8/15/20

Defense: Corner outfield spot could have most value, first base ability gives him versatility.

6/07/20
PBR NORTHERN CA UNDERCLASS GAMES

Body: 6-foot-2, 155-pounds. Lean and long, excellent frame for future size/strength gains
Hit: RHH. Tall balanced set-up w/slightly pinched knees, slightly lower hand slot just off right chest, compact stroke for a tall young man, lively body and lively swing projects very favorably as he develops, short stroke to the ball, clean lower body mechanics w/good hips, could work to stay in the zone a little longer through contact, but all in all, lots of talent here and positive projection here to develop power and a swing that has good bat control. Showed 1st pitch aggressiveness and both game ABs resulted in pull side contact (6-3, F7).
Power: 83 mph EV off tee
Arm: 1B velo - 72 mph / OF velo - 73 mph (R) - 1st BASE - arm strength should continue to improve as he gains strength, made accurate feeds to the bags while at 1st base / OUTFIELD - Solid exit of ball from hand, cleaning up the approach to the ball with his feet and getting rid of it a little quick will be areas of improvement.
Defense: At 1st base showed light feet and good agility, showed adjustable hands on unpredictable hops, consistently gloved ground balls in the sweet spot, good angles to put himself in position to get off a quick throw, worked a little high when receiving throws from INFs / OUTFIELD -Trusting his athleticism on approach to the balls to field was better on his last two throws home after he started to get feel for how ball was being hit to him. Projects as a corner (LF) down the road w/footspeed and arm strength that fit best there.
Run: 7.49 60-yard
