Wingate commit. 6 foot 4, 195-pound long, lanky, athletic frame.  Posted the highest exit velocity on the day at 97 mph. Relaxed, upright setup from the right side of the plate.  Toe tap during his load with his hands working back.  Drives the ball, using the whole field with lift in his swing.  Has power with above average bat speed.  Plays relaxed through balls in the outfield with average hands.  Arm is accurate with some carry topping at 88 mph.  Clean transfers with a long arm action at first base.  Still learning to let his athleticism play around the bag.  Arm topped at 78 mph on the infield.  Recorded a 7.09 in the 60.
Stretch only on the mound.  Good rhythm, working level and in-line, landing on-line and square with the front foot.  Medium arm swing to a high-3/4 slot.  Above average arm speed.  Tall over the rubber with regular effort.  Fastball ranged 82-88, around the zone.  Good change-up at 77 with solid hand speed.  Sink and fade present.  Inconsistent breaking ball working for 12/6 tilt.  Gradual action when it moved.  Around the zone, but lacked ability to land it.  Curveball sat 72-74. 

1/27/19

6 foot 4, 190-pound athletic, projectable build.  Offensively he works from the right side using a tall, open setup.  Small leg kick, getting his weight to his back leg, then a long stride into the ball.  Hands are back with some barrel tip during the load.  Looks to the lift the ball with some effort in the swing.  Works mostly middle to his pull side with average bat speed.  Strength in the swing with his exit velocity recorded at 95 mph.  Works through the ball in the outfield with some stiffness in his hands at catch.  Clean exchanges with a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Arm has life reaching 89 mph from the outfield.  Recorded a 4.06 in the 30-yard dash, 4.59 in the 5-10-5, and 9-2 in the standing broad jump. 
From the mound, works from an over-the-top slot, accentuated by his size.  Stretch only.  On-line and square at landing, occasionally with a hard fall to the 1B side.  Medium arm swing with some elbow lead and a slight wrist hook.  Average arm speed with some effort.  Fastball at 80-84, touching 86.  Pounded the down zone with the fastball.  Showed feel for the straight change at 72-76.  Breaking ball has gradual tilt with 12/6 arc at 71-73.

6 feet 4, 190-pound lanky, athletic build. Frame catches the eye and should continue to add quickness and strength.  Offensively he works from the right side using a balanced setup with a smooth load and long stride. Fluid swing, with an explosive lower half that generates above average bat speed. Works mostly middle to pull side with his barrel level through the zone.  Attempts to create some leverage through the ball.  Shows the ability to barrel the ball during BP with plenty of power potential. Exit velocity recorded at 89 mph. Athletically plays through balls in the outfield with fluid feet and soft hands. Clean exchanges with a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot. Accurate arm with carry to his throws topping at 85 mph. Swing is long in game, but the power potential is hard to ignore and will only get better as his athletic projectable body fills out. Recorded a 7.21 60-yard dash.

01.28.18
Lanky, athletic build, standing 6-foot-4, 185 pounds.  Athleticism and projection exists.  Frame can continue to add strength as it matures.  Ran a 4.32 thirty yard dash and a 4.27 5-10-5 agility shuttle.  Impressive 9’7” standing broad jump.  Arm has strength from the outfield with easy carry.  Plays through the ball, clean exchange to a long arm swing and high-3/4 slot.  Accurate at 85 mph out of the hand from the position.  Right handed hitter works from a tall, narrow base, open, using an aggressive stride.  Pull tendency, working with uphill leverage, occasionally in and out of the zone quickly.  Active backside that can over-rotate as it works to generate bat speed.  Tends to glide to the front side.  Average bat speed and barrel awareness.  Intriguing prospect as bat control improves with strength.  Exit velocity peaked at 86 off the barrel. 
On the mound, works level, landing square.  Stretch only.  Sets with the left foot slightly behind the right.  Average leg kick with looseness in the hips.  Long arm swing begins with a slight hook out of the glove and the elbow works above the shoulder line.  Some effort getting to the high-3/4 slot.  Front side clears early at times.  Improved command as the pen lengthened and he found rhythm.  Fastball works easy at 78-80, with run.  Change-up sits 70-75, deceptive hand speed, flashing occasional arm side run.  Around the zone but lacked glove command.  Breaking ball rolled at 69-70 with 10/4 arc.  Found the zone with spin as he threw more.

09.11.17

Lanky build with plenty of projection left as strength is added to the 6-foot-3, 175 pound frame.  Ran a 7.57 sixty but shows a better burst off the line.  Right handed hitter recorded an exit velocity of 87 mph off the barrel working from a tall, open stance.  Uses a leg kick to shift the weight back and getting to a short stride.  Vertical bat head with better than average bat speed.  Loose and flat through the zone, there is hand strength present.  Works for extension, with good rhythm, working gap-to-gap.  Fluid in the outfield, works to play through balls with a clean transition.  Loose, over-the-top slot shows some accuracy at 78 mph from the position.
High leg kick and a front side glove that points through the line from the right side on the mound.  Fastball ranged 74-76, touching 77.  Good arm side command with late run on the ball.  Lacks some consistency on a breaking ball sitting 66-67.  Gradual arc along a 11/5 or 10/4 path.  Shows a feel for his line and is around the zone.  The change-up comes out of a slower arm at 63-65.  Again, around the zone, lacking command.  Long arm action works to a high-3/4 slot with some effort.  Works level and on-line with some rhythm to the delivery.

08.10.17
Long frame with length in the limbs at 6-foot-3, 175 pounds.  Tall in stance with a vertical bat.  Weight shift back working to an average stride length.  Better than average bat speed with looseness throughout.  Level, showed some barrel ability, staying in the middle of the field.  Exit velocity peaked at 84 off the barrel.  Clean with the ball, footwork and exchange could get long at times.  Long arm action worked to sync with a front side that wanted to clear out early.  High-3/4 slot showed some accuracy and some carry at 78 mph out of the hand.  Ran a 7.82 sixty.
