6/19/19

6-foot, 160-pound left-handed pitcher and outfielder. Ran a 7.35 sixty on the laser at the event. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 86 mph. The setup is even in base, small step to the ball. The hands work fluidly through the ball, needs to add strength to the frame. On the mound, the fastball sat 81-83 mph, arm side action to it. The spin pitch is good at times, 71-73 mph. The changeup is 73 -76 , too hard at times. The delivery is online with his feet and the slot is above 3/4 in height. The glove side has a hard pull to it, causing the slot to go up. The frame is lanky and thin. 

Tee Exit Velocity - 86 mph

6-foot, 160-pound, longer, lean, wiry strong athletic frame. Sloped shoulders with strength throughout, is super athletic. A left-handed pitcher, showed extremely well, velocity has taken a major bump since last event. A left-handed pitcher, works out of the set position, the lift is athletic and high, coil to it at its peak. The direction is inline, lead glove comes off target, needs to be higher on release, tends to fall off at times. The arm is fast, quick, clean and works with minimal effort out of a ¾ to high ¾ slot. The fastball reached 85 mph, comes out of the hand very well. The slider is his top secondary offering reaching 73 mph, late action to it, back foot spin pitch. The change up had feel, good hand speed looking like a fastball with 4-seam rotation, clocked at 74-77 mph. Also threw a true curveball in the high 60’s, bigger top to bottom break. Look for the velocity to continue to climb, pitch-ability has improved, chance to be one of the better arms in the class of 2020.

5-foot-10, 155-pound left-handed pitcher and left-handed hitting outfielder. Positionally, ran a 4.69 down the line on his dig to first base. Threw 82 mph from right field to the plate. The approach is athletic and done correctly. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 78 mph. The setup is even in base, front foot slightly open. The bottom half uses a knee to knee approach as the ball approaches. The path is clean to the ball, frame needs additional strength. On the mound, the fastball touched 81 mph, arm side run to the pitch. The spin pitch 69-72 mph, correct in shape. The changeup is a developing pitch, sits at 73-74 mph. The delivery is repeated, slot is above 3/4. The glove has a hard pull to it, causing the slot to be too high. The head shifts a bit as he delivers the pitch. Tracking the front shoulder longer will aid the process as well. The spin pitch is advanced.

Tee Exit Velocity- 78 mph
OF Velocity- 82 mph

6/20/18

5-foot-10, 150 pounds, athletic build with average proportions, present lean strength, twitchy movements. Ran a 7.50 sixty yard dash. A left-handed hitter, Hussey sets up out of an open stance before evening up on the leg kick. Loose hands with some pre-pitch waggle, fluid through the zone finishing with one hand. Middle pull approach during batting practice, where he has present gap power. Bat path can get uphill, made best contact when closer to level up. His tee exit velocity was recorded at 79 MPH. Working out as an outfielder, Hussey’s throws were clocked up to 84 MPH. Athletic movements in the outfield on transitions from fielding to throws. Multiple throws on the bag. Live arm creates good carry. Also a left-handed pitcher, Hussey throws from a higher slot and creates good hand speed. Clean arm action with some whip. Quick tempo in the delivery. Simple mechanics, shorter stride length but creates downhill plane. Plus fastball movement, good run as the pitch comes in between 78-81 MPH, created swings-and-misses during game action. The curveball velocity range was wide between 66-73 MPH. His best offerings were in the upper tier of that range, mostly 12/6 in shape though some did get some late gloveside break. Also has a changeup that was thrown at 77 MPH, still a raw offering but was thrown with same armspeed as the fastball. Showed willingness to pitch backwards with the curve. Lots to like as a two-way prospect with a live arm, good athleticism, and continued improvement in both areas. Could see another rise up Connecticut’s 2020 class rankings before long.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.50
Exit Velocity: 79 mph
Arm Velocity: 84  mph

5-foot-11, 150 pounds, in the nascent stages of adding strength to the frame. Wiry and long-limbed, Hussey has sloped shoulders and is a projectable prospect in the 2020 class. He ran a 7.78 sixty yard dash. A left-handed hitter, Hussey’s swing is fluid with a level-up bat path. His tee exit velocity was recorded at 81 MPH. There is a slight bat waggle before the hands get set at shoulder height. He has a moderate leg kick with good hip rotation, helping him accelerate through the ball before finishing with one hand. The power is beginning to show up and Hussey made hard contact throughout his batting practice rounds. Defensively, the arm is already an asset, coming out of a higher slot with plenty of carry, touching 83 MPH. He makes athletic reads on the ball. A left-handed pitcher as well, delivery is simple, has an easy leg raise, gets to a good high gather. The separation is on time, arm action has average length to it, works out of a ¾ to high ¾ slot. The fastball reached 78 mph, pounded the 4-seamer to the glove side. The breaking ball was clocked at 66-68 mph, throwing a couple sliders at 70 mph. The changeup was clocked at 69-70 mph, with above average fade to it, sold it well, with good arm speed. Good looking athlete, performed well on both sides, very interesting prospect off the mound. Look for the velocity to spike at some point.

60 Time: 7.78
Exit Velocity: 81 MPH
Position Velocity - Outfield: 83 MPH

Future Games
5-foot-11, 155-pound, long, thin framed, has plenty of room for future development. A left-handed pitcher, top tool is his arm and arm action, it’s super clean, with length to it on the back side and works out of a high ¾ slot. The delivery needs to be tweaked, but all easy fixes. The stride could lengthen a bit, along with keeping front glove on track to home plate a tick longer. The fastball reached 80 mph, baseball comes out of his hand with ease, ball jumps when it gets to the plate, with a ton more in there. Throws two different breaking balls, curve ball was clocked at 66-69 mph, more of a top to bottom break.  The slider ball was clocked at 72 mph, more of a swing and miss pitch, showed the ability to locate it on the back foot of a righty. The changeup is still a work in progress, shows shape to the arm side. Look for big things from this one, arm is very good, going to be a good one at some point.
