4/18/21

5-foot-8, 170-pound, stronger, solid athletic frame, having thick wrists and forearms. A left-handed hitter, a balanced approach, short to the baseball, uses the entire body to hit. The baseball jumps off the bat, easy effort, looks to stay in the middle of the field, working the baseball from gap to gap. The exit velocity was clocked at 84 mph, with more to come. Ran a 7.45 sixty-yard dash, gets off the blocks quick, look for time to improve. Defensively, shows soft hands and clean footwork, gains ground. The glove is soft, clean starts and turns. The arm shows strength, clocked at 78 mph, plenty of carry across the diamond.  Love the feel and pace he plays at.

Exit Velocity: 84 mph

Arm Velocity: 78 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.45

7/22/20

5-foot-5, 135-pound, small athletic frame, showing plus strength in his hands and wrists. A left-handed hitting middle infielder, at the plate, feet start even at shoulder width. The hands are set at the shoulders, with pre-pitch movement to them, are back on foot strike. For timing uses a small leg kick, gains a good amount of ground, getting momentum moving forward, hitting against a firm front leg. The swing is level though the zone, a line drive approach, hard contact in batting practice. The baseball comes off the bat with ease for this 2024. Defensively, approach is under control, feet move to and through the baseball on the catch. The transfer could quicken, getting glove and throwing hand directly to his ear for separation. The arm action is short and clean, working from natural slot, clocked at 67 mph, will need to add additional arm strength. The turns around the bag were performed correct. Comes from good bloodlines, look for him to be a guy down the road.

Exit Velocity: 79 mph

Arm Velocity: 67 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 8.06
