MD MoCo Fall Review 

Strong, athletic body type and 5’9’’, 160 pound frame. Hits from a balanced, athletic, slightly open stance at the plate with rhythm. Quick load creating some hand separation. Has a tendency to get long at times but is mostly short to the ball with a slightly uphill swing path. Showed quick bat speed and some lower half involvement. Gets good extension past contact and finishes high with one hand. Gap-to-gap type hitter with some power present. Recorded an 83 mph exit velocity. Athletic and moves well in the infield working through it with clean actions. Throws with short arm action from a mid three-quarter slot at 78 mph across the diamond. Opens hips well on the double play and stays low on feeds to second. Ran a 7.38 60-yard time.

MD Top Prospect Games II

Strong, athletic body type and 5’9’’, 160 pound frame. Hits from a balanced, athletic, open stance at the plate with hand rhythm. Average stride length and good hand separation in quick load. Attacks the ball with intent and stays behind it with strong lower half involvement. Short to the ball with a more level swing path, quick hands, and quick bat speed. Strong finish and good balance throughout the swing. Showed a nice gap-to-gap line drive approach and pop. Recorded an 86 mph exit velocity. Moves well in the infield and showed range. Plays with active feet and field the ball out in front from a solid, athletic set-up. Presents the glove well and works through the ball. Soft hands and smooth, clean actions on exchanges. Throws with short arm action from a three-quarter slot at 74 mph across the diamond. Ran a 7.44 60-yard time.

Mid-Atlantic Summer Championships

Varda has a projectable athletic frame at 5-foot-10, 165-pounds. The infielder displayed some solid defensive actions on the weekend. Had soft hands with a clean exchange and the feet worked pre and post catch. Showed comfort throwing from multiple slots while making a variety of plays. At the plate Varda really stood out. Starts with an upright open stance, gains ground on stride while hovering low and staying under control. Hands stayed inside, lower half finished completely, and swing showed some adjustability. First AB of the tournament hands stayed back on a breaking ball for a line drive into center and the next time up he doubled to deep left field. Athletic infielder to keep an eye on.
