Notes

1/18/21

5-foot-9, 170-pound, solid, strong, twitchy athletic frame. Put together well, strength throughout. A left-handed hitter, can really scoot, quick off the blocks ran a quick 4.22 on a dig down the line, gets out quick. At the plate, feet are even, wider than shoulder width, hands are loose and relaxed at the shoulders. Bat head has tilt, hands are loaded and back on foot strike. The lower half is under control, small pick up and put down, has backside drive to it. The swing is short to contact, a down to level path, behind the baseball on contact, an all fields approach. Took a very good round of batting practice, with an exit velocity of 87 mph. From the outfield threw an easy 82 mph, arm action is super clean and loose from a 3/4 slot. All throws are downhill with plenty of life and carry. The footwork is advanced, can track it well in outfield. Good follow.

Exit Velocity: 86 mph

Arm Velocity: 82 mph

Home to 1st: 4.22

7/15/20

5-foot-8, 160-pound, strong athletic frame, put together, explosive movements at times, showing above average strength. A left-handed hitter, balanced approach, even feet, hands are at the shoulders with bat tilt to them. The stride is straight, simple pick up and put down, hitting against a firm front side. The swing is level through the zone, approach is more middle of the field, has enough juice to beat the outfielders. The exit velocity was clocked at 84 mph, with more in there as he works on his craft. An average runner ran a 7.22 sixty-yard dash, tracked the baseball down in game play. Defensively, approach is under control, transfer is a shuffle, quick feet getting rid of the baseball. The arm action is short on the backside, working out of a 3/4 slot, all throws were on target, arm was clocked at 77 mph. Off the mound, the delivery is repeatable, working from stretch, mixed two-pitches. The fastball reached 78 mph, the breaking ball was in the lower 60's, will need to add more fastball hand speed. The arm action is clean, controls his body, is a strike thrower. Projects out to play all 3 outfield spots, bat has a chance.

Exit Velocity: 84 mph

Arm Velocity: 77 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.22

1/20/20

5-foot-8, 160-pound, strong, athletic frame, sloped shoulders strength throughout. An athlete, overall speed and athleticism is above average. A left-handed hitting outfielder,  swing works with easy effort, loose hands. The stance is slightly wider than shoulder width, hands held at the shoulders, loose, with pre-pitch movement. The hands are back on foot strike, swing path is down to level to up, creating back spin, spraying line drives from field to field, made oppo approach look easy. Took two solid rounds of batting practice. Tee exit velocity of 81 mph, with more in there as he adds strength and continues to work on swing. Runs well above average, fast,  quick steps, ran a 4.13 from home to 1st. Defensively, threw 79 mph, short, clean, quick arm from a 3/4 slot. The footwork and transfer are accurate, fielding from the outfield. Off the mound, simple delivery, easy lift, arm working out of a 3/4 slot. Looks to pull and tuck early, could stay in line a tick longer. The fastball was clocked at 74 mph, breaking ball at 62 mph and changeup at 67 mph. Pounded the zone with all three, changeup showed to be the better of the two of the secondary pitches. Look for him to be a guy offensively, will be able to change the game a couple different ways.

Tee Exit Velocity: 81 mph

Arm Velocity: 79 mph

Home to 1st: 4.13
