Average frame with length at 6-foot-2, 150 pounds.  Still maturing and plenty of room to add strength.  Hand pump and average leg lift create stability over the rubber.  Some rhythm in the delivery, working with a long arm swing to a high-3/4 slot.  Fastball has early arm side sink at 74-78.  Good handspeed creates late 1/7 action at 63-67.  Has feel for spin and any misses were on line and down.  Straight change-up has some deception out of the hand at 66.  

Right handed hitter start open and balanced with a flat bat.  Slight leg kick loads the weight back.  Rotational the swing has some length, working for extension, with a pull emphasis.  Exit velocity of 82 mph will improve with added strength.  From the outfield, showed accuracy on throws measured at 77 out of the hand.  Looseness through the ball.  Clean exchanges.  Some length in the feet through the transition.  At 1B, hips can stay high as he works to catch the ball off the inside left hip.  Arm speed of 75 mph across the diamond.  Some athleticism in the transition from the left handed thrower.  Posted a sixty time of 7.50 on the laser.

Thin with long levers at 6-foot, 145 pounds.  Erratic with his command in his first inning, made a quick adjustment to see the plate earlier allowing for better pitch-ability and stuff in the second inning.  Fastball sat 71-75 from a high-3/4 slot.  Breaking ball used gradual 1/7 shape at 62-66, rolling through the zone.  Misses tended to be arm side.  Some rhythm in the body as he stays on-line with level shoulders.  Long arm action and normal effort throughout.
Left-handed hitter starts tall, using a weight shift back to the launch position.  Glide technique to the front side as the stride dives toward the plate.  Average bat speed with a level bat path, wanting extension.  Pull emphasis with average barrel awareness.  Exit velocity peaked at 76.  Ran a 7.36 sixty.  Arm topped at 79 mph from the outfield showing some feel for accuracy.  Long arm swing worked to a high-3/4 slot, clearing the front side early.  Fluid and clean through the baseball.

Lanky build, with long levers, in the 5-foot-10, 134 pound frame.  Flashed the ability to control the strike zone with all 3 pitches.  Fastball sat 69-70, working from a high-3/4 slot, that would slip lower at times.  Rolling through the balance point, working from a tall setup, the shoulders stay level throughout, with a choppy rhythm.  The lower half coils out of balance, creating a little bit of a slinging action with the arm.  The breaking ball flashes depth and spin, while inconsistent at this young age, ranging 58-59mph.  Hand speed remains close to fastball fastening a 1/7 shape to the good breaking balls.  Change-up creates some arm side action while registering 61-62, with look-alike hand speed.  As the young frame adds strength the arm speed may create tighter stuff.  Left handed hitter begins slightly open and from a tall stance.  Loads back, utilizing a long stride.  Good approach and fluid rhythm leads to a sweeping action through the zone.  Exit velocity topped at 74mph.  Some head discipline issues leads to a lack of barrel awareness.  As the head becomes more stable the hit tool will continue to increase.  In the outfield, average hands and fluid footwork leads to a positional velocity of 69mph.  Long arm stroke works to a high-3/4 slot flashing occasional accuracy.  Sixty time measured at 8.08
