5-foot-10, 135-pound right-handed pitcher and outfielder. Ran a 7.52 sixty at the event. The approach in the outfield is under control and cautious. He threw 73 mph from the outfield to the plate. The setup at the plate is even in base, the front foot steps into the swing. The path is long and casted to contact. Uses an even finish after contact. On the mound, he is progresses very well. He is much improved since the last time I saw him. The delivery is online and the tracking to the plate is much better. The arm is slightly above 3/4 and the ball comes out of his hands very well. Has a small amount of glove pull as he makes his way into foot strike. I think his future is on the bump but time will tell.

OF Velocity 73 mph

JUNIOR FUTURE GAMES

5-foot-7, 118-pound right-handed hitting outfielder and catcher. Also a right-handed pitcher. Ran a 7.5 sixty on the laser at the event. The approach in the outfield is athletic and online, threw 73 mph from the outfield to the plate. Behind the plate, threw 57 mph down to second base with a pop time of 2.6. The foot work and transfer need to develop as he matures in age. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 77 mph. The setup is even in base, front foot steps into the swing as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is flat to contact, the hands work freely. On the mound, showed a clean arm, above 3/4 in slot and a repeatable delivery. The tracking of the front shoulder must improve as he matures. 

Tee Exit Velocity- 77 mph

Catching Velocity 57 mph

Pop Time- 2.6

OF Velocity- 73 mph

3/23/19

5-foot-7, 118-pound right-handed pitcher and outfielder. Ran a 7.72 sixty at the event. The approach in outfield is appropriate and he threw 74 mph from the outfield out of a clean arm swing. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 70 mph. The setup is wide in base and the front foot dives into the plate as he swings the bat. The hands work free and clean, needs better direction at the start of the swing to lessen the length in the path. On the mound, the fastball sat 69-70 mph, minimal arm side run to the pitch.  The spin pitch is 63 mph, big in shape as he gets out and around the pitch. The changeup had fade and action to it, sat at 65-67 mph. The delivery is online with the feet and above 3/4 in slot. The arm works free and clean, the frame is thin and projects to be long. Showed a good feel for the secondary pitches and arm side action to the fastball at times. Solid young prospect. 

Tee Exit Velocity- 70 mph

OF Velocity- 74 mph
