Downing is a solid 6-foot, 170 pound right-handed hitting infield prospect. He hits out of an athletic set up. The hands are relaxed just off the back shoulder. The load is controlled and utilizes a knee slide to get the weight stacked over the back leg. The swing is direct through the hitting zone, showcasing Downing’s quick hands. During the batting practice Downing showed gap to gap juice and maxed out with an exit velocity of 97 MPH. He also showed some foot-speed with a 6.97 sixty.

Defensively, Downing showed athletic actions and a max velocity of 72 MPH at third base. He moves well laterally and gets into a balanced fielding position. The hands are soft as he transitions to throw. The hips get in line with the target and he finishes through the play keeping a straight line with the target.

Downing is a talented young infield prospect. He’s an athletic defender at third base, who can run. At the plate, Downing can really hit! The hand-speed is noticeable and shows gap to gap carry.

6-foot, 170-pound right-handed hitting corner infielder. He ran a 7.19 sixty at the event. The approach in the infield is athletic and the feet remain active during the fielding process. The glove is soft and he moved well side to side. He threw 76 mph across the diamond during the infield portion of the workout. The bat has an exit velocity of 92 mph. The setup is even in base and he gets to the front foot. He hits off the front foot as the hands are clean and flat to the ball. He showed good hand speed and displayed a 1-handed finish after contact with the ball. He is a very good prospect at a young age.

6/11/19

5-foot-9, 130-pound corner infielder and right-handed pitcher. Ran a 4.63 down the line on his dig to first base. The glove is soft and the hands are active through the process. Threw 71 mph across the diamond as an off-season long tong program is in order. The approach to the ball needs to continue to improve with active foot work. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 72 mph as physical strength gains are in order. The setup is even in base, and the front foot gains a great deal of distance to the ball. The hands work free and the path is clean. Getting stronger will aid the development of the bat. 

Tee Exit Velocity- 72 mph
INF Velocity - 71 mph
