Ronan Donohue: SS/RHP, (2023) out of Boston College, MA. is a 6-foot, 185-pound two-way prospect. During batting practice, the right-handed hitter recorded an exit velocity of 92 MPH with a 73.58 MPH bat speed average and 21.60 MPH hand speed average. He started in a wide, athletic stance with the hands set just off the back shoulder. A smooth load and a short stride put him in a strong position to hit. The hand-speed was evident during his round. He also showed the ability to use the whole field with a flat path. He finishes balanced and stays on plane well through contact. In the infield, Donohue showed some arm strength with a max velocity of 85 MPH on his throws across the diamond. As he worked through the ground balls, he had athletic footwork, soft hands, and a clean exchange. Donohue also recorded a time of 7.1 in the 60-yard dash. On the mound, the arm worked out of a short, high ¾ arm slot. The delivery is simple. He gets balanced at the top, separates well and creates a good line to home plate. The fastball sat 79-80 MPH (Max spin 1982; Avg 1783) with late arm side run. He also showed a tight 12/6 curveball (69-70 MPH) (Max spin 2062; Avg 1540).


10/04/20

5-foot-11, 170-pound right-handed hitting infielder. He continues to improve his game as he matures in age and strength. He ran a 7.15 sixty at the event. The approach in the infield is appropriate with the feet as he works his feet through the baseball. The glove is soft, he does double tap the ball after initially taking it out of his glove. The arm is clean, he threw 81 mph across the diamond at the event. The bat has an exit velocity of 89 mph to it. The setup is wide in base and he uses a pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The hands work freely producing a slightly uphill path through the baseball. He is a solid prospect. 

Exit Velocity- 89 mph

INF Velocity- 81 mph

7/21/20

Donohue is a solid 5-foot-11, 165 pound right-handed hitting infielder. He hits out of a wide stance, with the hands set high above the back shoulder. The load is triggered by short leg lift and a sinking of the hands into a good launch position. The swing plane is direct to and through contact and he shows a quick bat. His batting practice showed a lot of gap to gap line drives, with an exit velocity of 86.3 MPH.

Definitely, he gets into a good fielding position. The feet are light and the glove position is relaxed. He does a good job with both his glove and backhand sides and showed a 71 MPH velocity on his throws across the infield. He also ran a 7.4 second sixty.

Exit Velocity- 86 mph
INF Velocity- 71 mph
7/01/20

5-foot-11, 160-pound, average athletic frame, strength throughout. A right-handed hitting middle infielder, at the plate has a balanced approach, feet are even, wider than shoulder width. The hands are set higher, quiet with a tilted setup. The lower half is under control, small leg kick, gaining ground. The swing is level through the zone, hands inside the baseball, more of a line drive middle of field approach. Took a solid round, looks to be able to swing it. The exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph and ran a 7.33 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, shows a good arm across the diamond, clocked at 79 mph, having plenty of strength to stick on left side. The hands are soft, fields out front, working low to the ground, feet move throughout. The feeds and starts performed correct, good actions and flow. Big follow for me.

Exit Velocity: 85 mph

Arm Velocity: 79 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.33

3/01/20

5-foot-10, 160-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder. The approach in the infield is athletic and the feet stay active throughout the fielding of the ball. The hands work extremely well and he threw 78 mph during the infield portion of the workout. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 82 mph. The setup is athletic, the hands work free and clean to the ball. The path is simple and clean. The frame needs additional strength and weight.  He has turned himself into a very good prospect and should continue to improve.
