5/13/21

Kirkwood CC commit, ranked No. 32 in the Illinois 2021 class. Strong 6-foot-1 220-pound frame, advanced strength in forearms and lower-half. The top-ranked first-baseman in the Illinois 2021 class. Started his day at first and then moved over to third base after a few innings. Defensively shows soft hands with feel for both corner infield positions. At first-base, displayed the ability to handle short hops and showed athletic footwork around the bag. At third-base, showcased a strong arm across the diamond, sure-handed and showed above-average body control on the slow roller play. Offensively; confident presence in the box, starts in an open stance, long stride. Quick bat that works quick through the zone, advanced bat-speed. Showcased his power/quick bat by turning on a 92 mph fastball for a no-doubt home run in his first at-bat of the game. Tracks pitches in and around the zone well.

Showing some of the top raw power at the ProCase, the powerfully built, 6-foot-1, 220-pound Hayes has a swing geared for power. With strong hands and good use of his lower half he blasted balls to his pull side, averaging 309’ on his BP swings with a best of 398’. He was also a TrackMan favorite with his big thunder, posting a mark of 102 EV off the bat during BP and a 29.6 average launch angle. Hayes also ran a 7.62 sixty and showed an average arm (79 mph) with 2.07-2.19 pop times behind the dish. However, his arm strength played down due to below average carry and accuracy. He will need to clean up his drawback during his transfer and some extra length to his footwork, but he has plenty of power to profile to first base if the tools of ignorance don’t work out.
