5-foot-9, 145-pound, athletic, solid, wiry strength. Above average on the mound, showed quick arm speed, also used a ¾ arm angle with a very quick arm action. Up-tempo type pitcher and shows some effort. Has a strong balance point and in line shoulders. Lands square with an athletic finish. Produced a fastball that came in at 81-83 mph; shows control low in the zone and sinking action with heavy movement. Showed slurvey action and consistent command on his 1/7 curveball 67-68 mph. His changeup 70-71 mph shows arm side control and fading action. Attacks with a heavy three pitch mix, baseball jumps out of hand.  Projects to being a solid bullpen option at next level, fastball has life and can spin the breaking ball. 

8/05/20

5-foot-7, 130-pound, smaller, thin, athletic frame, sloped shoulders with room for added weight gains. A right-handed hitting infielder, a taller stance, hands are relaxed at the shoulders, more of a flat setup. The lower half is under control, simple stride, gaining ground, hands are back on contact. The swing is short to contact, level through the zone, finishing higher with one hand above the shoulders. The approach is more middle to pull side with line drives. The exit velocity was clocked at 81 mph and ran a 7.85. Defensively, moves very well to both sides, hands are soft on the catch, showed feel for turning the double play. The arm was clocked at 76 mph, easy carry across the diamond. Off the mound, simple delivery, easy lift, inline stride. The arm works from a 3/4 slot, fastball touched 78 mph, with arm side run to it. Worked the fastball to both sides of the plate. The breaking ball had slurve break to it, clocked at 63 mph, will need to add more fastball hand speed. Projects out more as a position player for me.

Exit Velocity: 81 mph

Arm Velocity: 76 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.85

3/5/17

5-foot, 94-pound, thin athletic frame, arms are long, actions and movements are smooth. A right-handed hitter, the hands are loose, start in the middle part of the body and get back with load and stride. The swing is level, compact, short to the baseball, sprays it to all fields, finishes it with two hands. Defensively, showed solid actions and feel for fielding the baseball for his age, hands are soft, moved well to both sides. The arm action is clean, has average length to it, clocked at 62 mph. Off the mound, has a smooth easy delivery for his age. Pitched down in the zone, fastball was clocked at 60-62 mph, curveball was 52 mph and showed feel for the change at 58 mph. Try to keep weight back, weight leaks forward at times.

Exit Velocity: 62 mph

Arm Velocity: 62 mph
