11/16/19

Lean 5-foot-10, 170-pound frame. In the box, the right-handed hitter had a max exit velocity of 80 mph. Began in a balanced stance with a smooth load, then used a short stride to start his swing. Displays quick bat speed, as well as an uphill swing plane and high finish. Barreled up multiple balls during the round. In the infield, recorded a position velocity of 79 mph; had soft hands, smooth footwork and a clean exchange. Showed a high ¾ slot and a quick arm action. He clocked a 60 time of 8.02 at the event. On the mound, he had a high ¾ angle with quick arm speed. Has a tall balance point and uphill shoulders. Lands square. Curveball (61-65 mph) worked best when he spotted up low in the zone. His fastball was 75-79 mph and topped out at 79 mph; has consistent command and running action. Has sinking action and some control on his changeup (69-72).
