6-foot, 165-pound left-handed hitting outfielder and first baseman. Ran a 7.42 sixty on the laser at the event. Threw 73 mph from the outfield as the approach was aggressive and athletic.Suited to play a corner position in the outfield during the future. Also, worked out at first, the glove is solid and he threw 64 mph across the diamond. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 85 mph. Starts wide in his base, the hands work, needs to smooth out the path. Flattening the path will help contact point and plate coverage. The bottom half is under control, there is a small pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches the hitting zone. I like the athleticsm, he is only going to improve, the skill set is there.

Tee Exit Velocity- 85 mph
OF Velocity- 73 mph
INF Velocity- 64 mph

5-foot-10, 165 pound,  strong athletic frame. A quick twitch athlete, is well proportioned, has room to will out and to get stronger. A left-handed hitter, the bat is his best tool and the athletic ability to track the baseball down in the outfield. A the plate, looks to spray and slap it all over the yard. The stance is even at shoulder height, hands are set slightly higher than shoulder height. The swing is short and crisp to the baseball, keeps the barrel in the zone and makes solid contact regularly. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 77 mph, has more in there, over time.  The short game is advanced as well. Ran a 7.32 sixty-yard dash.  Defensively, clean quick prep steps, gets through the baseball, arm action has average length to it. The arm was clocked at 71 mph, worked out of a higher slot. Throws are down hill with good touch to them. At first, shows soft hands and good footwork around the bag, hands and feet work well together. The arm was clocked at 61 mph. Off the mound, this left-hander, worked down in the zone, pounding the 4-seamer to the glove side. The delivery, has some coil to the keg raise, stays strong and back on the backside. The arm works out of a ¾ slot, fastball was in the 68-71 mph. The breaking ball showed top to bottom break, clocked at 54-55 mph. The change up is still a work in progress, clocked in the upper 60’s. Projects for me as an outfielder, love the bat and the ability to go get it outfield. High follow.

Tee exit velocity: 77 mph
Arm velocity: INF-61 mph, OF-71 mph
Sixty-Yard dash: 7.32

5-foot-9, 145-pound, very athletic frame, shoulders are sloped, neck is long, is put together well for a younger kid, has fast twitch actions to him. A left-handed hitter, the stance is balanced throughout, simple setup, feet are even and hands start at shoulder height. The hands get back in a good hitting position, stride gains ground and is under control. The swing is level through the zone, finishes with two hands. The approach is middle to pull, stays through the baseball well gets extension out front. The tee exit velocity was 78 mph, with a ton more in there. The sixty yard dash was at 7.8, look for that to improve, has he has an easy kick. Defensively, showed good feet from the outfield, uses a high crop hope in his transfer. The arm action is a little longer, opens it early, clocked at 66 mph, stops it at the end, needs to let it out. Worked out at first base as well, fielded ball out front, feet continue to move throughout, good momentum. Footwork around the bag was good, good first quick steps on and off the bag. The arm was clocked at 65 mph from first to third, arm needs to get stronger and loosen it slightly. Off the mound this left-hander has a repeatable delivery, has timing and tempo to it. The hands start high, work downward in rocker step and back up with controlled leg raise. The arm works out of a high 3/4 slot, locates the fastball well to glove side, clocked at 70-74 mph. The breaking ball has more cutter break to it, clocked at 61-62 mph.  The athletic ability is advanced, can handle the bat, good looking young kid.
