2/18/13:  Mantle is s solidly built and strong 5-foot-10, 200-pound two way player who has impressed in all facets of his game, and further established him as a top level Class of 2015 player. In the infield, Mantle is quick to the ball with soft, quick hands and a clean exchange. He showed quick arm speed and a strong arm with a top throw of 85-mph across the field. Offensively, Mantle uses a strong lower half to generate power in his swing. He has strong, quick hands that produce barrel whip through the zone and power all fields. On the mound, Mantle has good rhythm, smooth mechanics, and a strong arm. He comes from a ¾ arm slot with short, quick arm action and easy effort. His heavy fastball topped at 86-mph and showed run and sink action, consistently around the strike zone. He also showed a sharp 11-to-5 breaking ball (70-73 mph) with fastball arm speed and a 69-72 mph change up with arm side run that stayed on the inside half of the plate.


6/13/12: Mantle was the top two-way prospects at the event, as he showed extremely well both at third base and on the mound. Standing a solid 5-foot-10, 200-pounds, Mantle displayed one of the strongest arms across the diamond, posting a velocity of 79 mph.  Aside from his arm strength, he showed fundamental defensive actions, as he took efficient routes, demonstrated quiet, soft hands and played through the ball well. Offensively, he has a balanced approach and showed good rhythm with loose hands and a powerful swing. Using his strong lower half, Mantle produced some barrel whip and squared up the ball, driving it hard with gap to gap power. On the mound, Mantle operates from a over the top arm slot. He showed good hand acceleration and fluid mechanics throughout while showing the ability to command three pitches for strikes. His arm works with little effort on all pitches and the ball jumped out of his hand. His fastball showed some arm side run and was down in the zone; sitting in the 82-83 mph range and topping at 84 mph. His 70-72 mph curveball demonstrated sharp two-plane break. Mantle’s change up had some depth, at 71-73 mph.
