8/12/20

6-foot-2, 195-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball sat 77-78 mph with arm side run to it. The spin pitch was 72-73 mph and trending up, could be an out pitch down the road. The changeup is a developing pitch for him, it sat 71-72 mph with fade and sink at times. The delivery is online and the slot is above 3/4 in height. The lift is athletic, repeated and solid in tempo. The arm works quick and clean during the delivery of the baseball.  He is improving and his best days are in front of him. 

2/26/20

6-foot, 180-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball sat 77-78 mph, minimal arm side run to the pitches. The breaking pitch is 64-66 mph and big in shape. The changeup is 68-70 mph, action to the arm side. The delivery is online and the slot is above 3/4. The tracking of the front shoulder is solid and he stays with his arm. The slot may be a tick too high. He needs to keep the same hand speed on his secondary pitches as he slows his hand down on the breaking ball and change up. 

10/05/19

6-foot, 180-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball sat 79-80 mph, showed a feel for throwing strikes and competing. The spin pitch is 66-67 mph, big in shape as it needs additional fastball hand speed added to the pitch. The changeup is 70-72 mph, fade and sink to the pitch. The delivery has minimal crossfire to the feet and the slot is above 3/4. The outing was out of the stretch. The tracking of the front shoulder is done appropriately and he stays with his arm throughout. Solid feel for what he is doing. 

9/16/18

6-foot, 180-pound right-handed hitting outfielder and right-handed pitcher. On the mound, the fastball touched 71 mph, arm side run to the pitch. The spin pitch is a cutter/small slider, sitting at 65-66 mph. The changeup is a work in progress, sitting at 62-63 mph. The action of the pitch is minimal. The delivery is online with the feet, above 3/4 in slot. The post foot is angled on the rubber, causing forward lean. The glove comes across the hitters face as he makes his way into foot strike. The tracking of the front shoulder needs to be incorporated, as he comes off track much prior to getting his foot down. The arm works free and clean. Positionally, ran a 4.91 dig to first during the workout. The approach in the outfield is appropriate. Threw 66 mph from right-field to home plate. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 71 mph. The setup is even in base, front foot slightly open. The front foot never gets even or closed up causing a pull approach only. The path is long to the ball, as the hands work freely.

Tee Exit Velocity- 71 mph
OF Velocity- 66 mph
