10.21.17
Lean athletic frame.  Room to add strength to the 5-foot-10, 150 pound frame.  Ran a 7.19 sixty, showing a good burst off the line and carrying top speed through the first 40 yards.  Right handed hitter works from an athletic base, loading back and using a short stride.  Simple approach with good hands through the swing.  Line drive approach.  Short, direct path, staying gap-to-gap.  Some feel for the barrel.  Exit velocity peaked at 81 mph.

Lanky 5-foot-10, 150 pound right handed hitter. Balanced and working with a flat barrel in the setup.  Leg kick loads the weight and foot strike is short, almost back in the starting position.  Shows barrel awareness, working level and producing line drives, staying in the middle of the field.  Exit velocity, off the barrel peaked at 78 mph.  Has some quickness running a 7.27 sixty.  Effort in the arm, with a long arm stroke to an over-the-top slot, showing some accuracy and average carry, measured at 73 mph out of the hand.  Tends to field the ball deep, working to play through it, with awkwards transfers.  
11.19.16
Quick twitch athlete that stands with a lanky, athletic nature at 5-foot-10, 145 pounds.  Right handed hitter begins from an open stance and flat barrel that loads back with a short stride.  Better than average bat speed works level through the zone creating a gap-to-gap approach.  Fluid rhythm was nullified at times with late timing.  Barrel awareness can improve with better timing.  Body suggests there is a lot of room for growth and strength.  Exit velocity topped at 82mph.  From the outfield, worked with a long arm swing to an over-the-top slot that touched 74mph.  Occasional exchange issues while playing through the ball.  Lands open, with some head whack, leaves room for improvement with accuracy.  Sixty measured at 7.68, but showed better bursts in shorter runs.
