Notes

Comments

1/08/23

Positional Profile: OF/1B
Body: 6-0, 170-pounds. High waisted, athletic frame with lean muscle.
Hits: RHH. Balanced, slightly open setup, keeps it simple throughout, hands start near ear, short load, leg kick timing trigger, good balance. Aggressive intent behind each swing, short, direct path to the zone, gets on plane early, present hand and bat speed create whip, uphill through the zone, consistent hard driven contact to all fields.
Power: 96 max exit velocity, averaged 84.6 MPH. 360' max distance. All fields pop.
Arm: RH. INF-85 mph.OF-87 mph. Long, loose arm in the outfield to a low 3/4 slot, easy carry. Shortens up on the infield.
Defense: Plays through the ball athletically with quick footwork, feel for glove, quick and clean on exchanges, moves well in the outfield. Good body control.
Run: 6.76 runner in the 60. Long, fluid strides, quick feet

Fall Campus Tour: Mercer

Turned on the burners at Mercer, clocking in an effortless 6.73 60 yd (1.66 10 yd) for the second fastest time in the event and his backwards hat added to the energy of the run. At the plate, he has a simple, non-manufactured swing that creates serious bat speed from his impressive lower half mechanics. He gains optimal ground in stride and the hips clear nicely before landing, creating space for his hands to turn and burn. Which he did to the tune of 96.3 EV, sending balls into the gaps. It was on to OF where he showed impressive range and instincts, with a strong accurate arm up to 87 mph and all throws were on a line. This is a player who impacts the game in a variety of ways, and will surely fit into a good college program sooner than later.
