5-foot-11, 175- wiry strong athlete, hands wrists and legs have good strength to them. A right-handed hitting middle infielders, projects out to be more of a third baseman long term, top tool is his overall athletic ability. At the plate, stance is wider, feet are even, hands are loose set above the shoulders. For timing uses a smooth higher knee to knee leg kick. Stride foot gains minimal ground, weight stays on the back side, is balanced on contact. The swing is level to up, finishes with a high one-handed finish. The approach is more line drive to the pull side, hard contact in batting practice, barrel has life out front, had a tee exit velocity of 80 mph has more in there. Time down the line was at 4.73, showed to have an athletic kick. Defensively, arm was clocked at 83 mph across the diamond, has plenty of carry and flight to the baseball. The hands are soft on the catch, funnels into a clean transfer, arm works out of a high ¾ slot. The feet move throughout, moves well to the backhand side, slow roller was made with ease. Shows to have plenty of arm to stick on the left side of the field, big follow.

Home-First: 4.73

Exit Velocity: 80 MPH

Arm Velocity: 83 MPH


5-foot-11, 185 pounds, sloped shoulders, thick, starting to fill out physically. Strong legs, can keep adding upper body strength. Arm was clocked at 69 mph from shortstop. Throws from a ¾  slot. Developing footwork, solid backhand, moves well laterally. Charges the ball well. Can continue improving his double play transfers. At the plate, stands open to even with a large leg kick. The bat path is level with slight lift to it. Barrelled balls with consistency during batting practice. Strong one hand finish, accelerates the bat through the ball. His hands work high up by the shoulders. Serious power at the present with room for it to continue growing in the coming seasons. On the mound, he works from a ¾ slot. Good extension off the mound. The fastball sat 78-80 mph with movement. The curveball works between 69-71 mph with 11/5 shape, best in game pitches had late bite down and away from right handed bats. Already a swing-and-miss pitch. The changeup was thrown between 72-74 mph. Needs to develop more separation in velocity from the fastball, but has promising movement on the pitch. Throws all three pitches from the same slot. With a velocity spike, Stearns could find himself making big gains as an RHP in the 2019 class.

Home-First: 4.75

Exit Velocity: 81 MPH

Arm Velocity: 69 MPH


5-foot-10, 165-pound, average athletic frame, the neck is long and shoulders are sloped, has good strength for his age. Worked out all over the field, shows good versatility. At the plate swings it from the right side, the stance is balanced, feet are shoulder width apart and front foot is slightly open to even. The hands are set just below shoulder height, with the bat flat on his shoulder, looks to be relaxed and comfortable. The lower half is under control, uses a smooth leg kick, the back side could get involved a little more. The swing is level to up and finishes with one hand. The approach is more to the pull side, the tee exit velocity was clocked at 80. The sixty yard dash was clocked at 7.59. Defensively, worked out in the infield and outfield, projects out for me as more of a corner infielder. At shortstop, works from the ground up, gets around the baseball and gets body moving towards his target. The feet and hands work together, one step through transfer to release, moved well to glove side. The action has a longer path, opens it early at times on the backside. The arm works out of natural ¾ slot, clocked at 78 mph across the diamond. Outfield play, came through the ball well, fielded it out front on proper foot and stepped through and gained ground towards target. Throws were downhill and he gave the catcher something to handle, clocked at 76 mph. On the mound, this right-hander works from a high ¾ slot, the direction is inline, stride is slightly shorter. The arm action is longer on the backside, fastball was clocked at 74-76 mph, lived in the bottom part of the zone. The change up looked to be a real good pitch, good action and fade to the arm side, clocked at 68-70 mph. The breaking ball was clocked at 61-65 mph, backed up at times, needs to continue to get release point out front. The frontside needs to stay connected, will help in velocity and overall depth of pitches. Currently a two-way guy, time will tell which way he will go.
