Currently ranked No. 34 in the state, SS David Cox (Nazareth; Illinois-Chicago) is a presently strong 6-foot-4, 210-pound infielder that will be in attendance on Wednesday. Cox has a hitterish look about him in the right side of the box, where he showcases an aggressive swing that has some advanced strength with exit velocities up to 99 mph. The strong-armed defender (T92 mph) has shown soft and confident hands to pair, which should allow him to stick on the left side of the infield. Don’t be surprised if the 2022 Future Games alum continues to put up loud numbers on Wednesday.

4/29/23

Northwestern commit, currently ranked No. 29 in the Illinois’ 2024 class. 6-foot-4, 200-pound, broad-shouldered, well-proportioned frame. Moves much better all around the field than his frame would indicate. Started at shortstop and hit in the four-hole. Offensively, presence in the box, aggressive swing, present whip through the zone and ball jumps off the bat at times. Finished 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and run scored. Smoked a line-drive to left-field in his final at-bat and also drove a sacrifice fly to right field in his second-to-last at-bat. Also, came out of the bullpen and went three innings, giving up one hit, no earned runs, four strikeouts and two walks. Fastball plays around the bottom of the zone at 85-88 mph, touched 89 and went to a 74-77 mph breaking ball.

2/25/23

Cox, a two-way Northwestern commit, had a strong all-around showing with maybe the most impressive metric being his 7.21 60 time, which was down from a 7.74 last summer. That foot speed attached to his physical 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame is impressive. Also, given his smooth round of infield, strong arm (92 mph across) and knack for making plays in-game it gives Cox a real chance at sticking at shortstop at the next level. Offensively, the right-handed hitter flashed advanced bat speed and bat strength at times and when the swing syncs up the ball jumps off the barrel. Cox also got on the mound and sat 87-88 mph while mixing in a sinker that showed some heaviness at the bottom. Cox mixes in a short lateral slider with solid feel for his glove side of the plate.

Physically, INF David Cox (Nazareth Academy, 2024) stands out instantly, listed at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds. Inside the right-handed batter’s box, Cox swats line-drives to all fields, naturally translating to above-average exit speed marks (91.9 mph high). His swings is simple, which allows him to repeat it well; starting from a balanced setup that leads into a small leg kick stride, and his loose hands and forearms generate some extension through impact, though he finishes his swing while maintaining his balance well. On the infield, Cox profiles as a corner type, and he has the arm strength to hold his own at third base, measured at 81 mph at this event.

INF/RHP David Cox (Nazareth, 2024) is another impressively-built sophomore who put together a strong showing at The MAX on Saturday. Listed at a broad-chested 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, the right-handed hitter seems built for the middle of an order offensively. It’s a loose, strong swing with all kinds of barrel-whip and strength through contact. The swing stays compact and repeatable, especially for his size, and he was elevating baseballs with authority throughout his round of BP. Cox also showed off a loose arm that topped at 90 mph across the infield and also played well on the mound. Cox works across his body and flashed a projectable fastball that played at 81-84 mph with finish through the zone. He also flashed a lateral slider at 67-71 and sinking changeup at 72-74 mph.
