5-foot-10, 160-pound right-handed pitcher. He cruised through his outing at the event. The fastball sat 79-80 mph with arm side action and he showed the ability to command the ball. The spin pitch was 65-66 mph and big in shape. The changeup is still a developing pitch for him. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is above 3/4 in height. The lift is solid in tempo and he shows the ability to repeat with athleticism. The arm works long on the backside and quick out front. The release has recoil to it. He turned in a very good performance on this day.

5-foot-10, 160-pound right-handed hitting outfielder. He ran a 7.65 sixty at the event. The approach in the outfield is athletic and online. The feet remain active s he is aggressive getting through the baseball. He threw 79 mph with carry during the outfield defensive portion of the workout. The bat has an exit velocity of 84 mph. The setup is wide in base and he uses a knee to knee approach on the bottom half as the swing is produced. The hands work freely and he took a good round of batting practice.

2/23/20

5-foot-9, 150-pound right-handed hitting outfielder. Ran a 7.6 sixty at the event. The approach in the outfield is appropriate and athletic. He threw 74 mph during the outfield portion of the workout. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 79 mph. The setup is wide in base, front foot is closed off. The front foot gains a great deal of length to the ball. The path is long and strong to contact, needs to be shortened at the initiation of the swing. The frame needs additional physical strength to aid the development of his game.

Tee Exit Velocity- 79 mph

OF Velocity- 74 mph
