BAWS 2019 - Yorke was a rallying ball of energy for his South Bay teammates during the event both on the field and in the dugout. The large, compact frame is squared up with some physicality in the build (7.99 60yd); agile, instinctual, playing in short bursts rather than pure speed. On the left side Yorke has a balanced, simple swing with limited wasted movement attacking best to the middle of the field and pull side gap which he showed with ease. The bat is quick and level with the ability to square it up (89 EV) flashing a solid hit tool with flashes of gap-to-gap pop. Showed a patient approach putting together quality AB’s and picking up two hits with multiple drawn walks; two singles were hard contacts to the middle of the field and also drove in a run. During defensive workouts he played loose and easy showing his eyes behind the ball and low hips with bounce off prep; compact arm able to make throws from different angles and on the run (76 MPH). His in game defense was fantastic filling in at 2B/3B/1B and being able to make plays all around. He made some catches in foul territory that were not easy and ranged well into the OF to make some plays as well. Yorke is a solid all-around player that can continue to make jumps with his hit tool; great personality and work ethic added on as big carrying tools.

Vs Serra - Uncommitted. The youngest Yorke brother showed he’s going to follow in his older brothers footsteps with instincts and actions above his age. Wide, medium frame with budding strength and some extra youth weight; a big-bodied kid that has some time to help tighten the body to help firm up the profile. Wide, slightly crouched stance keeping high even hands and flared elbows. Rocks weight over back foot as hands work down deep into back shoulder with scap load; foot has a small toe-tap/turn blend allowing him to stay behind the baseball and be on time. Swing works on slight upward path with ability to stay through the zone; times where his front hip opens early creating some length on the swing to the outer half of the plate. On base three times with HBP, 1B and BB hitting in 2-hole as a freshman. In game quickness with ability to move laterally and open up his hips fairly well. At 2B made some nice plays showing advanced infield footwork with better range to glove side; made a nice play on the fringes of the dirt in RF diving, popping to knees and making the throw to 1st. Chance he’s more of a 3B/1B/C type as he continues, but showed good fundamentals during game. Should be rising up the 2022 rankings through the Summer/Fall.

7/27/18 at Underclass tourney - Solid trunk. Sweet stroke w/some pop, uses the whole field. Smart on the bases. 3 for 4 in the game scouted. Applies pressure and gets good reads on BIDs. Straight steal of 3rd off left-hander. Can play multiple positions. Average fielder. High ceiling and comes from baseball family. Upper 70s on the mound. Talked a lot on defense.
