6-foot-2, 195-pound right-handed hitting infielder and pitcher. Positionally, the approach in the infield is athletic and online. The glove is reliable and he moved through the fielding of the baseball. He threw 82 mph during the infield portion of the workout. The bat has an exit velocity of 89 mph. The setup is wide in base and the front foot steps into the pitch as the ball enters the strike zone. The swing is uphill with effort. On the mound, the fastball sat 82-83 mph. The spin pitch is 71-73 mph and solid in shape. The changeup was 72-74 mph, fade and sink at times. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is above 3/ in action. The lift is repeated, solid in tempo and he can do a better job staying online with his top half to foot strike.

INF Velocity- 82 mph


6-foot-1, 185-pound, strong, longer, athletic frame, with projection, should be physical at some point. A right-handed hitting two-way player, feet are even, wider than shoulder width. Stands taller, hands held higher, with more of a vertical setup. For timing uses a higher leg kick, stays over the back leg, staying balanced and back. The swing is short to contact, hands are inside the baseball, field to field approach with line drives. The exit velocity was clocked in the low 90's, baseball jumps, shows to have enough juice to beat the outfielders. Defensively, threw an easy 76 mph across the diamond, showing carry. Presents the glove early, gets low and works through the baseball. The transfer is clean, feet move throughout, building momentum towards target. Moving well to both sides, showed an above average backhand. May project out more as a third baseman long term. Off the mound, simple delivery, easy lift with coil, is loaded on backside. The arm works from a 3/4 to higher 3/4 slot, creates arm side run. The breaking ball needs more fastball hand speed, clocked at 80-83 mph, shape and spin are correct. Throws a true turn me over changeup, good arm side action to it. Like the bat and glove, will be a good one at the next level.

Exit Velocity: 93 mph

Arm Velocity: 76 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.90
