2/19/22

5-foot-10, 175-pound versatile athlete. During batting practice, the right-handed hitter displayed an exit velocity of 94 mph with a (68.4 mph bat speed average) and (21.6 mph hand speed average). He begins in a balanced, athletic stance with a rhythmic load. A controlled stride starts a simple, flat swing that shows off his quick hands, balance and the ability to use the whole field. In the outfield, Gaer was up to 82 mph on his throws while showing a clean exchange, sure hands, and smooth, athletic feet. Behind the plate, he was up to 74 mph on his throw downs while showing consistent, smooth feet, sure hands, and a clean transfer. The setup is calm. The feet are square, the chest is tall and the glove is relaxed.

5-foot-7, 150-pound, small, strong, durable athletic frame. Lower half and wrists show very good strength. A right-handed hitting catcher, looks to love his craft behind the plate. The setup is balanced, wide, moves well side to side, feet and hands work well together in transfer. Arm is clean from a 3/4 slot, short and lets it fly. The pop time was clocked at 2.14-2.26 and arm was clocked at 67 mph. Received and blocked the baseball really well in game play, ran the game, worked well with pitchers. Offensively, feet are even, a shorter, taller stance. The stride gains ground, hands are back on foot strike, stays behind the baseball. The swing is level to up, hands are inside the baseball, line drive approach. Showed hard contact in batting practice, with an exit velocity of 86 mph and ran a 7.82 sixty-yard dash. Like the feel behind the plate.

5-foot-2, 125-pound, smaller, average frame and strength for his age. At the plate, hits from the right side, feet are even at shoulder width. The hands are loose at the shoulders. The swing is level through the zone, finishes the swing with two hands, rolls the hands late. Looks to keep the barrel in the zone with the hands working inside the baseball. The approach is line drive, middle of the field. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 75 mph. Behind the plate, arm was clocked at 57 mph, with a pop time of 2.44. The feet are active, gets inline and gains ground with transfer. The setup is low and wide to the ground, hands are soft, works hard on the catch. The arm action is short and throws from a higher slot, with a little wiggle of the hand just before release. From shortstop, fields low and out front, clean transfer, with an arm of 59 mph. Projects for me more from behind the plate, looks to really like to work and catch.
