8.23.18

6-foot, 160-pound, thin, lengthy, athletic frame. The shoulders are sloped, has room for added weight and mass. A left-handed hitting middle infielder who can play on both sides of the bag, better suited long term as a second baseman at the next level. At the plate, the hands are loose held above shoulders, front foot starts slightly open, taller shorter stance. Shows to have separation of hands from body. The lower half is under control, uses a small leg kick, gaining ground with stride foot. The swing is level to up, looks to spray it from field to field, hands work loosely through the hitting zone. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 74 mph with more in there as we gains strength. Looks to be able to handle the bat, short game is a must. The sixty-yard dash was clocked at 7.46, shows to have an athletic stride. Defensively, solid prep steps, gets around the baseball, moves extremely well from side to side. The hands are soft on the catch, clean quick transfer into throwing arm. The arm action is super short, works from a lower ¾ slot. The arm was clocked at 70 mph across the diamond, throws were on target. The double play feeds and starts were performed accurate from both sides of the bag. Looks to have good instincts and looks to be a heady ball player.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.46

Exit Velocity: 74 MPH

Arm Velocity: 70 MPH


 
 
6.20.18

6-foot, 155-pound, thin, athletic frame, neck is long, shoulders are sloped has room for added strength. A left-handed hitting middle infielder, at the plate, starts open, shoulder width apart. The hands are held higher, lower half is under control, uses a small leg kick for timing. The swing is down to level to up, it’s fluid and works with ease, looking to spray it to all fields. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 74 mph, has more in there as he gets stronger. Ran the sixty-yard dash at 7.28, clean quick strides. In game performance was extremely impressive, collected two double, making hard contact throughout. Defensively, shows to have soft hands, quick actions, transfer is very quick, works from the ground up, moves well laterally. The arm action is super short, throws from a high ¾ slot, right from his ear. The arm was clocked at 73 mph across the diamond, throws were accurate. The double play feeds were smooth and performed correctly. Projects for me as more of a second baseman, feel for the game, looks to be able to handle the bat. Strength is a must, look for big things from this one.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.28

1.15.18

6-foot, 155-pound, thin average athletic frame. The neck is long, shoulders are sloped, has plenty of room for future development. A left-handed hitting middle infielder, who can play on both sides of the bag, looks to be able to defend at a good level. Defensively, the hands are soft, works low to the ground and fields everything out front. The transfer is clean and crisp, keeps feet moving throughout. The arm works from a lower slot, arm action is short, clocked at 69 mph, showed solid touch on all throws. The double play feeds from both sides of the bag were performed correct, feet are quick around the bag. At the plate hits from the left side, starts slightly open, hands are super loose set just below shoulder height. For timing uses a small top tap, gets back to even. The swing is down to level, rolls the wrists late, gets the barrel out front with some flick to it and finishes with two hands at shoulder height. The approach is more line drive to the middle of the field. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 71 mph, the sixty yard dash was clocked at 7.69. Strength is a must, once he gets stronger the game will climb. Good looking left-handed hitting middle infielder, projects more as a second baseman.

Tee Exit Velocity: 71 mph

Arm Velocity: 70 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.28
