All State Invitational:
A veteran of PBR events, Mitchell continues to progress in all facets of his game from showcase to showcase. Most impressively, Mitchell ran a 7.2 in the 60, his previous best was a 7.43 last fall. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Mitchell proved to be one of the most consistent overall hitters. Mitchell has an advanced approach and showcased extremely fast hands and barrel whip through the zone. He maintains balance and rhythm throughout his swing, and gets excellent extension through contact with no wasted movement. The ball jumps off his bat with backspin carry. Defensively at first base, Mitchell is athletic to the ball and moves well on and off the base, with good footwork and accurate throws (75-78 mph) to second and third base. On the mound, the right-hander has a short backside arm action and operates from a high-3/4 slot with a fastball that topped at 83 mph. Mitchell also displayed a sharp 10-to-4 breaking ball (72-73 mph) which has the potential to be an out pitch.


On the mound, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound right-hander uses a 3/4 delivery to generate arm-side run on his 77-80 mph, and should see a spike in velocity with more lower-half drive. Mitchell also threw a 67-68 mph breaking ball, as well as a 70-73 mph changeup. As a first baseman, the strong-bodied Mitchell is agile; he moves well (7.43 60) both ways and has both fluid footwork and a quick, accurate arm. At the plate, Mitchell uses a strong setup, quiet weight transfer and direct bat path to drive the ball to all fields with above-average power.
