12/14/19

5-8, 140lbs Medium athletic build with proportional frame.  7.08 sixty time (laser). 77 mph INF velocity. 81 mph exit velocity (tee). RHH has a tall open stance with the hands relaxed and the bat resting on the back shoulder. He uses a high leg kick and long stride to push the hands back and turn the barrel into a slightly wrapped position. Flat path to contact, uphill through release to a high two hand finish. Peppered the pull side with line drives and occasional elevation during his BP round. In the INF, showed a stop and start tempo in the fielding process. Confident hands have firm tendencies. Transfers were adequate, clean with avg. quickness. Short arm action pushes the ball across the infield from an OTT arm slot. RHP ran the FB up to 75 and was consistently in the lower half of the zone. Used a medium rocker step to get to a balance point at the belt. Slightly rotational at the top with a short arm action on the backside. Arm showed some quickness, max effort in the delivery. SL ranged from 64-65 with 10/4 shape and flashes of late side to side bite. CB was a looser offering with more downer action. CB ranged from 60-64 mph with loose, early break
