5 foot 10, 150-pound athletic build.  Hits from the right side using a balanced, athletic setup.  Works back in his load with a short stride.  Quick hands.  Works mostly to his pull side with some feel for the barrel.  Average bat speed with his exit velocity recorded at 83 mph.  Plays through balls on the infield with fluid feet and average hands.  Quick exchanges with a short arm action, throwing from a ¾ slot.  Accurate arm across the diamond topping at 78 mph.  Recorded a 3.84 in the 30-yard dash, 4.46 in the 5-10-5, and 7-11 in the standing broad jump.
Low leg kick and medium arm swing work from a slow to quick temp on the mound.  ¾ release with some hand speed.  Stable head.  Fastball 78-80 and attacked the zone.  Lands slightly across his line with a square toe.  Average back side action.   Breaking ball sat 70-72 with 11/5 tilt, using similar hand speed to that of fastball.  Change-up has fade and sink at 73-76.  Aggressive with the change, showed feel.  Athletic presence and clean arm action.  Attacked the zone with all three.

Quickness and athleticism are present in an average build at 5-foot-10, 145 pounds.  Plenty of maturation to come.  Ran a 7.03 sixty and should improve the time with continued strength gains in the coming years.  Good rhythm between the feet and hands on the infield.  Works to play through the ball, occasionally catching the ball deep in his stance.  Quick, clean transitions to the right hip, separating to a high-3/4 slot.  Can adjust arm swing and slotting based on the play and the rhythm with his footwork.  Easy release and good carry at 81 mph out of the hand.  Finishes through the bag with accurate throws.  Right handed hitter is tall with a vertical bat.  Small weight shift back and short stride working to average bat speed and short path.  Consistent contact to the pull side, producing line drives.  Good rhythm throughout the swing.  Exit velocity peaked at 78 mph.
On the mound he pounded the down zone with hard arm-side run to the fastball at 78-81.  A high ceiling may exist with the fastball that works from a quick arm and seems to jump out of the hand.  Breaking ball flashed the potential to miss bats in the bullpen setting at 67-70 with late 10/4 tilt.  Tunneling with the fastball there is deception.  Has feel for the zone with spin.  Change-up sat 74-75, again showing signs of deception in its release and tunnel.  Pounded the down zone again with the change.  Easy, repeatable delivery and release.  Stable head on easy turn to balance with an average leg kick.  Long, loose arm swing to a high-3/4 slot.  Lands just slightly across his line with a slightly closed front foot.  Good extension.

Young 5-foot-7, 130 pound frame with a lot of maturity in front of him.  Ran a 7.38 sixty.  Balanced setup from the right side.  Short stride and simple swing with good head discipline.  Average bat speed working level and short to the ball.  Line drives peppering the pull side gap.  Rotational approach on the back side.  Some feel for the barrel.  Exit velocity peaked at 73 mph.  Cautious to the ball and through the exchange, loading the arm.  Short arm swing and over-the-top slot with some accuracy.  Positional velocity at short topped at 74 mph.
Fastball ranged 72-73, touching 75.  Breaking ball worked 59-61 with slight action.  Change-up is straight working with good hand speed at 66-69.  Some rhythm in the delivery working level and on-line.  High-3/4 slot, from a strong arm swing, working to stay tall through balance.  Good head stability.  Shows an ability to repeat the delivery.
