Notes

Comments

10/28/20

Body: 5/11, 165 pounds. Athletic frame, room for maturation ahead.
Defense: 2.44-2.76 pop times. Feet gain ground to target, clean transfers across his midsection.
Arm: . C - 66 mph.  Accurate, short arm action, high 3/4 slot.
Hit: . Balanced, even base, hands at back shoulder. Hands load back, short stride. Loose hands, short to the ball, barrel stays through the zone, has feel for his barrel working through the middle of the field
Power: 84 mph exit velocity from the tee.  Average bat speed, numbers should improve with added strength.
Run:8.14 runner in the 60. 

Delivery: Side saddle on the 3B side. Small rocker and easy turn. Leg lifts to the belt. Slight coil and uncoil out of balance. Small uphill leverage with a high front side as the hands break. Lands open to his line with a square foot-strike. Athletic finish
Arm Action: . Medium arm swing. Arm has some athleticism in it as it loads the scapular. Pelvic tilt takes the release to an over-the-top slot. Average arm speed
FB: T73, 70-73 mph.  rpm. Some ride and run with a 1:15 spin out of the hand. Elevated with more feel for the arm side.
CB: 59-62 mph.  rpm. Hump out of the hand. Early action. Big tilt with some depth. 11/5 tilt.
CH: 60-66 mph.  rpm. Similar metrics to the fastball relying on change of speed for deception. Around the zone. Slows arm a bit
