6-foot, 195-pound right-handed hitting corner infielder and pitcher. He has made himself into a very good prospect as he can do multiple things on the field. Positionally, ran a 7.4 sixty at the event. The glove and feet work at third as he threw 88 mph across the diamond. The feet remain active and the glove is solid, he is a reliable defender. The bat has an exit velocity of 98 mph. The setup is even in base prior to the front foot stepping into the swing. The path is long and strong as he powers the ball around the yard. On the mound, the fastball sat 84-85 mph with arm side action. The spin pitch was up to 75 mph, solid in shape and still can improve. The changeup is a developing pitch. The delivery is online with the feet and above 3/4 in slot. The tempo is quick, lift repeated and he is aggressive. He fits the mold of a closer at the next level for me. Excellent prospect. 

Exit Velocity- 98 mph

INF Velocity - 88 mph

5-foot-11, 190-pound, thick, strong durable frame for his age. A two-way player, worked out off the mound and in the infield. Off the mound, this right-hander had a fastball reached 81 mph, lived in the bottom part of the zone and had sink to the arm side during his bullpen. The breaking ball was clocked at 61-67 mph, had more of a slider break to it, had depth and was thrown for strikes, chance to be an above average pitch over time. The change up was clocked at 67 mph, still a work in progress. The delivery is sound and compact, hands start and stay at mid chest, leg raise has coil to it. The lead leg lands slightly closed and gets out front ton finish, for the most part uses the entire body to pitch the baseball. The arm works out of a natural ¾ slot, path is slightly shorter on the backside.  Offensively, hits from a wider base, hands start at chest high, shifts weight to back side. The swing is flat through the zone, had a tee exit velocity of 81 mph. The approach was more to the pull side, could keep hands inside a tick longer, shooting the baseball to all fields. Defensively, has soft hands, comes through the baseball, keeps feet moving throughout. The arm was clocked at 74 mph. The transfer was clean, with hands and feet working well together. Lateral movements need to quicken to stick up the middle. Projects for me off the mound, good live arm for a young kid with proper spin to the breaking ball.

Sixty-yard Dash: 7.84
Exit Velocity: 81 mph
Arm Velocity: 74 mph
