6/17/19

Thin, 6-foot-3, 165 pounder.  Lots of maturation ahead.  Tall setup on the right side.  Waggle in the hands and bat.  Loads the hands back with an average stride.  Inconsistent launch position and bat angle.  Limited barrel feel through the zone.  Good bat speed with some whip.  Loose and athletic at contact.  Worked gap-to-gap.  Exit velocity of 76 mph off the barrel.  On the infield, works to be early with his setup.  Average hip bend.  Catches the ball from the center of his frame to the inside right hip.  Long transition, working to the midsection.  Clean arm to a high-3/4 release.  Some effort through release.  Average carry at 72 mph across the diamond.  Ran a 7.56 sixty.

10.27.18

6 foot 3, 168-pound projectable build.  Offensively he works from the right side using a balanced setup.  Small leg kick during his load with a hand pump and medium length stride.  Quick hands with above average bat speed.  Looks to get extension out front, but the barrel gets out of the zone to quickly at times.  Works mostly middle to his pull side.  Exit velocity recorded at 76 mph.  Average hands on the infield with his feet stopping at catch.  Funnels to the midsection after catch with a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Accurate arm across the diamond with carry.  Positional velocity peaked at 74 mph.  On the mound he has some effort in his delivery with some head tilt to the first base side.  Long arm action with some wrist cup at the bottom, then throwing from an over the top slot.  Fastball has run at 73-76 mph.  Tight curveball with 11/5 tilt at 66-67 mph.  Changeup has fade and sink at 65-67 mph.  Shows advanced feel for both secondary pitches with late action and maintaining fastball arm speed.  Recorded a 7.86 in the 60.
