 6-foot-2 -185 pounds that has wide shoulders and an athletic frame with room to grow. At the plate, he has even feet and slightly wider stance with most of his weight starting on his back leg. The bat lays flat on the shoulder till the pitch is thrown and quickly brings it back and shows loose hands and a very flat bat path. The swing has bat speed plus his strength he clocked in at 88 mph for his exit velocity. In the outfield he showed on target throws and a long arm at 81 mph. The tempo in the outfield could be faster and being a bit more aggressive fielding the ball will help the velocity increase. An average runner ran the sixty-yard at 7.29.

Exit Velocity- 88 mph

Arm Velocity- 81 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash- 7.29

6-foot-2, 185-pound right-handed hitting outfielder. Ran a 7.41 sixty on the laser at the event. A much improved player over the last year, as he has really worked at his game. The approach in the outfield is athletic and aggressive. Threw 77 mph from the outfield to the plate. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 84 mph. The setup is wide in base, the feet are under control throughout the swing. The hands work freely, the path is slightly long, but the barrel gets out to contact. Made solid contact throughout the day, hammering the ball all over the yard.

The 6-foot-2, 185 pound right-handed hitting outfielder has a simple balanced swing. The stance is wide, with the weight already over the back leg.  The hands are set back off the shoulder and move slightly during the load.  The movement during the load is short and controlled, allowing the hands to be free through the hitting zone.  The path is flat and he made consistent hard contact throughout the BP.  He also had a tee velocity of 84 mph and a 4.7 second home to first base.In the outfield, he keeps the feet moving as he works toward the ball.  As he breaks down into the fielding position, the feet get the body under control and the glove drops into a good fielding position.  The transition to the throwing position is good and he threw 76 mph to home plate. I like his potential.  The swing is compact and shows the ability to consistent hitter.  Defensively, he is athletic and even showed the ability to go behind the plate and catch.

Tee Exit Velocity- 84 mph
OF Velocity- 76 mph

The throws have carry to them, coming out of  long arm action. The bat has a tee exit velocity 78 mph, physical strength gains are needed. The setup is wide in base, uses a toe tap as the ball approaches. The path is long to contact, flat in plane. The hands work and he likes the game, should progress well as he matures.

6-foot-2, 175-pound right-handed hitting outfielder and catcher. Ran a 4.65 down the line on his dig to first base. The defense is trending up, threw 70 mph from behind the dish, as the arm has strength to it. The feet need to be cleaned up behind the plate as he takes an extra step at times to throw. Just needs a little coaching. The glove is soft and he shows good flexibility behind the dish. Pop time of 2.21. Threw from the outfield as well, throwing 77 mph with carry. Moves athletically and loose to the ball. Solid outfielder on the corner. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 82 mph, as additional physical strength is needed to aid the development of the bat. The setup is wide in base, the hands relaxed to start. The path is free and clean to the ball. The front foot has a toe tap to it as the ball approaches. The frame projects to add weight and strength.

Tee Exit Velocity- 82 mph
Catching Velocity- 70 mph
