6-foot-3, 170-pound right-handed hitting infielder and pitcher. Positionally, ran a 7.24 sixty on the laser at the event. The approach in the infield needs to be smoothed out with the feet, the hands are soft and clean. Threw 75 mph across the diamond from shortstop to first base. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 84 mph. The setup is wide, small pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The hands work clean to the ball, long and strong to contact. On the mound, the fastball sat 81- 82 mph, minimal arm side run. The spin pitch is big in shape, sitting 66-67 mph. The changeup is 75 mph and a work in progress. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is high in nature. The tracking of the front shoulder comes offline and he has a minor pull to the first base side, taking away from his extension. The arm works well. 

Tee Exit Velocity- 84 mph
INF Velocity - 75 mph

6-foot-3, 170-pound, large, long, lean athletic frame. The shoulders are rounded, has room for growth, going to be extremely physical at some point. One of the better players at this event. A two-way player, showed above average ability from both sides of the field for his age. At the plate, has potential to be a serious power guy down the road. At the plate, the hands are set lower are super loose with the bat having tilt to it. The lower half is under control, uses a smooth controlled leg kick, could gain ground with stride. The swing is level to up, finishes with two hands above the shoulder. The barrel stays in the zone, looks to drive the baseball from the middle to pull side. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph and runs well for a big kid at 4.45 down the line. Defensively, hands are soft and relaxed on the catch, clean feet, shuffle for the transfer. The arm works out of a natural ¾ slot, more of a flip to the throw, good touch across the diamond, clocked at 68 mph, with much more in there. Double play feeds were clean and on time. Off the mound, the fastball reached 78 mph with action to the arm side. The breaking ball was clocked at 59-62 mph, break was 11/5. Showed a change at times, clocked at 65-71 mph. Times to the plate, were at 1.32, worked quick and attacked the hitter. The backside lower half drops, could stay taller throughout, front glove tucks early, gets off line. Couple simple adjustments, look for velocity to jump. Big time prospect, has more in the arm.

Home-First: 4.45
Exit Velocity: 85 MPH
Arm Velocity: 68 MPH
