6/23/20

Hit:Switch hitter. From the left side he uses a bat tip up top during the double tap timing trigger. Looks athletic and controlled in the box. Found contact often, working all over the yard. From the right side he uses a toe turn with the lower half while hands show a similar loading pattern as he does for the left. Comparable juice from both sides of the plate. Looks to be a legit switch.
Power:Line drive abilities.
Offensive Projection: Top of lineup.
Max BP Exit:L-83 mph/R-83 mph
Max BP Distance:L-229 ft/R- 229 ft
Field: Very functionally athletic back there. Moves well/has feel for the game. A skill set tha twill only improve as he matures physically.
Throw: Average present with potential for more.
Defensive Projection: C.

2/15/20

2/15/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: On the mound Knight shows a very controlled tempo to his delivery. He doesn’t create much momentum down the mound but shows a very quick arm with a clean arm action through a ¾ arm slot. Has a lot more velo in the tank as he matures and if he can learn to use his body more and create momentum down the mound. Good athlete.
Fastball: The fastball was 76-79 mph and mostly true through the zone.
Fastball Spin Rate: 1750-1860
Curveball: His breaking ball was 62-64 mph with slurvey shape with decent depth. Pitch shows potential if he can learn to throw it more aggressively with more velocity.
Curveball Spin Rate: 1630-1830

2/15/20 Position Player
Hit: At the plate he uses a toe tap load and has a bit of an armbar which puts him in positions to cast his barrel at times but for the most part he is able to drive his barrel through the zone relatively well.
Top BP Exit Velocity: 78.3 mph
Top BP Distance: 252 feet
Offensive Projection: TBD
Field: In the infield he showed good rhythm and timing but took passive routes to the ball with average footwork. Behind the plate he showed quick feet and a quick arm. Fairly clean defensive fundamentals and footwork. Will benefit from adding strength to have better control of his body and movements.
Throw: 74 mph across the diamond and 72 mph from behind the plate.
Defensive Projection: Presently showed more advanced skills behind the plate when compared to the infield.

2/09/20

2/9/20 Pitching
