3/14/21

6-foot, 175-pound, long and lean, with room for added strength. Solid at the plate, the right-handed hitter clocked an exit velocity of 89 mph. Begins in a tall athletic stance with a smooth small load, then uses a leg kick. Had a short flat swing plane, above average bat speed and high finish. Found multiple barrels with loud contact. Gap to gap approach. Athletic while in the infield, recorded position velocities up to 80 mph; has quick fluid feet, a twitchy exchange, and sure hands. Movements laterally were average and he fields the ball out front. Consistent accuracy to the bases, used a high ¾ slot and a loose arm action. Clocked a time of 7.02 in the 60-yard dash. Above average on the mound, using a long arm action he showed quick arm speed from a high ¾ arm angle. Up-tempo type pitcher and uses some effort. Showed strong balance point and downhill shoulders. Lands square with an athletic finish. Sat with his fastball at 81-84 mph; had sinking action and arm side command with heavy movement. His changeup 70-72 mph; has consistent control and fading action. Shows command low in the zone and swing and miss action on his 2/8 slider 67-68 mph.  Pounds the zone with three pitches, a strike thrower, major pitch-ability.

Exit Velocity: 89 mph

Arm Velocity: 80 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.02

8/12/20

6-foot, 170-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball sat 80-82 mph with arm side action to it. The spin pitch was 65-67 mph and big in shape. The pitch needs to add more fastball hand speed to it. The changeup was 68-69 mph and at times showed minimal fade to it. The delivery online with the feet and the slot is above 3/4 in height. The lift is solid in tempo and repeated. The glove has a good amount of pull to it, taking him offline. The arm is clean and free. The direction needs to be cleaned up in order for him to command the ball.

60-foot, 170-pound, average athletic frame, with room for added weight gains. A right-handed pitcher, who worked out as a position player as well. Off the mound, a quick tempo delivery, builds momentum down the mound. The hands start stay at the midsection, the direction is inline, arm action is clean on the backside, working out of a 3/4 slot. The lead arm has some pull, needs to track a tick longer. The fastball sat at 78-80 mph, creates arm side bore action. The breaking ball has proper spin and shape, thrown with good hand speed, reached 70 mph. The changeup is a legit out pitch, showing fade action, comes out of his hand like a fastball, clocked at 69-70 mph. At the plate, even feet, loose hands, more of a vertical setup, swing is level through the zone. The approach is more line drive middle to pull side. The exit velocity was 84 mph and ran a 7.29 sixty-Yard Dash.  Defensively, showed solid actions, approach is under control, fields out front. The arm was clocked at 72 mph. Projects for me off the mound, look for a jump in velocity in the next 6 months, strong pitch-ability.

Exit Velocity: 84 mph

Arm Velocity: 72 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.29

6-foot, 165-pound, average athletic frame. Showing wiry strength sloped shoulders with a wider back. A right-handed pitcher, with a simple repeatable delivery. The hands start at chest high, loads up over back side and rubber, direction is inline, pitching down hill. The frontside, has pull and tuck to it, could track longer.  The arm action is short and clean on the back side, working from a higher 3/4 slot. The fastball was located to both sides of the plate, had 2-seamer action to arm side. The fastball sat at 79-80 mph, with more in there as he continues to physically gets stronger. The changeup is a plus pitch, more fade and downward depth to it, comes out of the hand looking like a fastball, clocked at 69-70 mph. Looks to be very confident and comfortable, should be able to throw it in any count. The curveball was clocked at 63-64 mph, needs more fastball hand speed. Feel for throwing strikes, will need to continue to add arm and overall strength. Good looking arm, need to see him.

5-foot-11, 165-pound, average athletic frame, small back, sloped shoulders. A right-handed pitcher, that worked out in the infield as well. The leg kick is quick and higher building momentum down the mound, direction with lower half is inline, could track longer with glove side. The arm action is longer working out of a higher 3/4 slot. The fastball was pounded to both sides of the plate, reached 79 mph. The change is a plus pitch, sold with fastball hand speed, circle change with proper fade and arm side action. Clocked at 69-71 mph, works off fastball very well, its an out pitch.. Breaking ball is smaller, needs more fastball hand speed, clocked at 64-65 mph. At the plate, feet are even slightly wider than shoulder width. The hands are held higher, bat starts in a vertical position. The lower half is under control, simple stride, swing is a tick long in the beginning, flat through the zone, showing more of a pull approach. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 79 mph and ran a 7.44 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, arm was clocked at 70 mph, working out of a higher slot. Could stay lower through the catch into the transfer, look to stand up. Look for him to be a guy off the mound at some point, pitch-ability.

Arm Velocity: 70 mph
Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.44
