2/17/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10 137-pound right-handed pitching prospect with room to add strength.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Worked out of the stretch. Compact delivery with level shoulders, worked in good direction down the mound. Uses a short arm action working through a ¾ slot.

Fastball: 70-73 mph fastball shows slight run to the arm side.

Curveball: 64-67 mph curveball has a short 11/5 break. The pitch has developing depth and flashed some sharpness at times.

Changeup: 64-68 mph changeup is thrown with fastball arm speed and shows slight run to the arm side.

Pitchability: Offers a true three pitch mix. Fastball worked mostly to the arm side of the plate. Shows good feel for the breaking ball, the pitch should develop into a true out pitch in the future. Changeup is still developing but has a solid feel for the pitch.

Role: Too early to tell.

 

2/17/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10 137-pound pitching prospect.

Swing Mechanics: Starts in a wide stance with a toe tap load. Shifts his weight well during his swing and has a slightly uphill bat path.

HIt: Good bat to ball ability.

Power: 70 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection:
Swing shows some potential. How he develops physically will determine what type of offensive player he projects as.

Field: 2.07-2.19 pop time. Behind the plate he made big movements with average footwork. He showed a quick exchange on his throws. At 3B he waited on the ball with minimal angles taken through the ball. Showed pretty good hands.

Throw: 71 mph from behind the plate. 68 mph across the diamond.

Run: 5.01 home to first.

Defensive Projection: Currently would project best as a C at the next level.

2/17/18

5-foot-9 and 137-pound right-handed pitching prospect. Worked of the stretch. Little has a drop and drive type lower half with a slight pause at the top of his leg lift. Uses minimal effort working out of a long arm action and ¾ slot. Fastball showed sinking action near the zone sitting 65-70 MPH. At 62-63 MPH, the changeup offers the same sinking action as his fastball. Little also offered a 11/5 breaking ball at 62-63 MPH. Shows good feel and developing depth on the pitch. Two-way prospect. A righty swinger that starts in an athletic stance. Uses a bat tip load during his short stride for timing. A contact type guy who takes an uphill path to the baseball. Barrel gets in and out of the zone quickly. Bat has some quickness to it and he would see more consistent ball flight by leveling out path. Worked through a gap to gap  approach in BP. Settled into more consistent barrel contact as round went on. At third base he attacks the baseball off the bat using quick footwork. Reacts well off the bat with a quicker first step. Fields the ball out in front of his body and gets rid of it quickly. Hands are soft and ball skills look to be on par for class. Starts in a mid crouch behind the dish. Feet work well out of his stance, creating direction while gaining ground. Transfer is clean with developing quickness. Should see easy improvements in pop times as arm strength comes along with maturity.

Home to First: 4.82
Pop Times: 2.22-2.34
Catcher Velocity: 65
Infield Velocity: 72
Exit Velocity: 81
