Maryland Preseason All-State Session I

Body: 6’3’’, 185 pounds. Projectable, lengthy frame exuding obvious strength in the movements. 
Hit: LHH. Relaxed, tall and slightly open stance with the barrel resting on the shoulder to begin. Utilized a short lift and replace stride to initiate the swing through a lightning quick, slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Extremely efficient in the box allowing for eye-popping measurables. Short stroke overall, which should transfer effortlessly over to gameplay. Accrued a 71% hard hit rate (batted balls over 90 mph) while consistently staying off the ground (36% LD rate / 43% FB rate). A 350 foot peak batted ball distance during his round was an impressive metric, but a 28+ mph average hand speed via Blast Motion stood out the most. All of this on top of solid bat to ball skills (65% on-plane) and a 90 mph AVG exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. 
Power: 99 mph exit velocity during BP per TrackMan. Home run juice through the RCF gap, pull-side. Can stay on the ball and hammer doubles over the backside outfielders’ head if need be. 
Arm: LH. INF - 76 mph. High ¾ slot with minimal restrictions, adequate arm speed with accuracy towards the target. 
Defense: Wide base with good posture at the fielding window, approached with quiet feet and a soft glove hand out in front. Stayed in line and let it rip across the diamond. Adequate feel around the bag at first base. 
Run: 7.91 60-yard time.

6/24/20

Maryland Top Prospect Games West

Body: 6’3’’, 190 pounds. Strong, projectable frame.
Hit: LHH. Hits from an exaggerated spread, open stance from the left side of the plate. High leg kick load with hand separation and lands square to the pitcher. Stays behind the ball with some lower half involvement. Swing is more uphill and has a tendency to get long. Showed extension past contact with a one-handed finish. 
Power: 85 mph exit velocity per TrackMan during BP. Power to the pull-side present with more projected. 
Arm: LH. INF - 78 mph. Throws with shorter arm action from a high three-quarter slot. 
Defense: Fields the ball out in front and gains ground on throws with fundamental footwork. Showed quick exchanges on throws to second on the double play feed. 
Run: 8.25 60-yard time.
