5-foot-10, 170-pound right-handed hitting corner infielder and catcher. He ran a 7.75 sixty at the event. The skill set behind the dish is solid and he showed extremely well. He threw 71 mph down to second base with a pop time of 1.97. The feet are quick and he gets rid of it in a timely fashion. The receiving can continue to improve as securing the catch and softening the glove is trending up. The bat has an exit velocity of 87 mph. The setup is wide in base and the front foot steps into the swing. The path to contact needs to be flattened and additional strength is needed. The hands work, just need the other parts to take form. He is a good prospect. 

Exit Velocity- 87 mph

Catching Velocity- 71 mph

Pop Time- 1.97

7/15/20

5-foot-10, 167-pound, solid, strong athletic frame. Showing strength throughout, hands and wrists have very good strength to them. A right-handed hitting corner infielder, the bat is his top tool, can flat out swing it and gets the barrel to the baseball consistently. At the plate, the feet are even, slightly wider than shoulder width, hands are loose, relaxed held higher with bat tilt. The lower half is under control, simple pick up and put down, gains ground, hands are back on foot strike. The swing is short to contact, level through the zone, with lift, an all field approach with enough juice to eat the outfielders. The exit velocity was clocked at 87 mph and ran a 7.61 sixty-yard dash. Took a solid round of batting practice, along with good swings in game play. Defensively, the glove is soft, moves well to both sides. The arm was clocked at 71 mph, with feel across the diamond. Showed clean starts, brings a ton of value, can play multiple positions. 

Exit Velocity: 87 mph

Arm Velocity: 71 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.61

2/15/19

5-foot-9, 135-pound, longer, lean athletic frame, shoulders are sloped, room for added weight, athletic actions to him. A two way player, at the plate, taller, even stance, bat starts in more of a vertical angle, hands set higher. The swing is level through the zone, slight arm bar, but catches up with life out front on contact. The hands really work through the hitting zone, keeps them inside the baseball. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 79 mph, above average bat speed for his age. Ran a 7.58 sixty yard dash. Defensively, choppy feet to the baseball, moves throughout, fields out front, with soft hands. The swing is a tick longer, opens early on the back side, clocked at 67 mph. Off the mound, this right-hander works from a higher slot, pitches downhill. Located the fastball to both sides of the plate, clocked at 70 mph. The breaking ball, has small break, clocked at 60-61 mph. The change up was clocked at 55-56 mph, needs more feel for it, should be able to develop over time. Projects for me as a corner infielder over time, solid potential to hit at some point.

Tee Exit Velocity- 79 mph
Arm Velocity- 67 mph
Sixty-Yard Dash- 7.58
