04/12/18- Miami recruit. Currently stands at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds with a strong, athletic. Loose, easy working arm from the ¾ slot. Featured a fastball that was mostly 88-90 mph, working the corners of the plate and keeping the ball low and down in the zone. Also mixed in a 76-78 mph curveball with hard break and an 82-83 mph changeup. Mixes his up his pitches well and really knows how to pitch. Worked with confidence and hit his spots. Racked up 10 strikeouts in six innings. Gates will continue to be a high follow throughout the rest of the spring as we approach the draft.
10/24/17- The Miami recruit toed the rubber for FTB/Giants Scout Team and struck out four while allowing two hits in two innings. He sat 89-91 mph from a 3/4 slot. He stuck to his fastball mostly, mixing in a low-80s changeup and breaking ball around 80 mph. 
10/14/17- Miami recruit. Strong, athletic build. On the mound he repeats well out of the high ¾ arm slot. Fastball mostly sat in the 86-89 mph range along with a short, hard slider at 78-82 mph and an 82 mph changeup that showed some sink. Struck out four in his time on the mound. There is a lot to like about the athleticism and repeatability on the mound as well as a feel for two above average off speed pitches. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a big velocity jump in the spring.

7/10/17 - Named to Team USA 18U trials roster.
7/1/17 - Has stood out with the bat all week, but showed true two-way ability with his outing Saturday. He allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out two. He has a high leg kick in his delivery and sat 89-91 with his fastball, touching 92. His slider was 81-84 with sharp angle. He also threw a straight changeup at 84-85.
6/28/17 - Has upside on the mound, but he has swung the bat well the first two days. Some of the hardest hit balls have come from Gates, who is 3-for-6 so far. He doubled on Wednesday, slashing a double down the left-field line with an inside-out swing.
2/28/17 - Miami recruit. Currently ranked No. 6 in the Florida Class of 2018, No. 13 Overall. Currently stands at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds with a solid, athletic build. Quick arm out of the high ¾ arm slot with a simple, repeatable delivery. Confident, collected demeanor on the mound. Goes after hitters and throws a high percentage of strikes with command of the zone. Fastball mostly sat 89-90 mph with life and some sink to it, touching 91 several times. Also mixed in a hard 77-80 mph slider with depth and bite to it along with an 81-82 mph change up. Knows how to pitch, mixes it up well. Struck out eight batters in four innings pitched. At the plate has an aggressive approach from the left side and looks to drive the ball to his pull side. During the game he doubled and crushed a no-doubter home run over the right field wall. High follow for his class.

2/23/16- Miami commit who stands at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds with an athletic, loose, and strong body. He has really put on muscle over the last year and it has led to a noticeable gain in velocity. He has a repeatable delivery and stays in line when he breaks towards the plate. He shows good confidence and gets into a nice rhythm. High ¾ arm slot and pounds the zone with an 87-90 mph fastball and touches 91 mph. He shows an above average curveball at 76-79 mph and a sharp slider at 81-82 mph. He throws strikes with all three pitches and appears to be one of the top arms in the 2018 class. 4 IP, 1 ER, 4 Ks in their win over Hernando HS.
2/6/16- Committed to Miami.
1/15/16- 84-86 mph FB, 76-78 mph CHG that looks like his FB and dives late.
2/20/15 - Left Hander with a lean, athletic, and projectable body. He has a loose and quick arm with a high ¾ release. Fastball was 82-85 mph. He has a good 75-77 mph changeup with the same arm speed as his fastball that has some arm side run and late sink. He has an average curveball that was better the harder he threw it. At 69-71 mph it was a soft roller that did not break much. When it was 72-74 mph it had a sharp break that broke two planes. Consistency and fine-tuning of his curveball will give him three advanced pitches for his age. More velocity will come with added strength and physical maturity. Ball comes out in line. 3 IP, 5 K's, 5 ER against Wesley Chapel.
