10/11/19

6-foot, 165-pound right-handed hitting catcher, proportional strength throughout frame, broad shoulders, projects to fill out as he physically matures. Offensively, was one of many impact bats on a loaded Hitters 2023 roster. Starts in a wide setup, balanced throughout, high leg lift stride, hands load back, remains balanced through contact. Barrel works slightly uphill as he looks to use the entire field, present bat speed, quick hands, generates hard contact. Good hand-eye coordination, able to recognize pitches and keep weight back on off-speed, allowing him to routinely barrel pitches. 

6/02/19

5-foot-11, 165-pound two-way player with an above-average strong, durable build. He’s a natural behind the plate with premium catch-and-throw skills; quick out of the crouch and he has advanced arm strength for his age. A right-handed hitter, he has a fast bat that works off a slight incline path. He started Hitters’ first game on Saturday, sitting in the 78-80 mph range, and touched 81 mph, in his first few innings of work. He mixed in an 11/5 slurve-y breaking ball that also flashed some depth to it.

Body: 5-foot-11, 165-pounds.
Defense: 2.10-2.19 pop times. Flashed soft hands, showed natural instincts.
Arm: RH. C - 72 mph. Short action, over the top slot, played accurate across the field, flashed carry on his throws.
Hit: RHH. Balanced setup, slight bat wrap load, reverse toe tap, short stride. Flashed fast bat speed for his age, uphill swing path.
Power: 78 mph exit velocity from the tee.
Run: 7.57 runner in the 60.
Delivery: Side rocker step, drop and drive delivery, high knee lift, tends to land open.
Arm Action: RH. Short arm action,
FB: T79, 77-79 mph. Straight action, worked the arm side half of the plate.
CB: 64-67 mph. 11/5 shape, flashed depth.
