7/31/19

Strength is present in a mature 5-foot-11, 185 pound frame.  Potential dual prospect moving forward.  Right handed arm can spin the baseball.  Hard, 12/6, downer action on the curveball at 73-75.  Shows feel for the ability to land the pitch and expand down when ahead.  Fastball is straight, down from the HS season slightly sitting 81-83.  Simple delivery with a kick to the lower chest.  Loads the back side while the arm works through a long arm swing to a high-3/4 slot.  Above average arm speed.
Right handed hitter works from a tall, slightly open base.  Leg kick to load, striding with some aggression back to an even base.  Average bat speed with strength at contact.  Good leverage, elevating the baseball with some ease.  Pull side power potential.  In game, there is barrel awareness, working to stay more gap-to-gap than in the BP.  Good strike zone awareness.  Ran a 7.59 sixty.

1/27/19

5 foot 10, 185-pound average build.  Hits from the right side using an athletic setup.  Smooth back in his load with a short stride, getting his hands ready to attack the ball.  Fluid swing with above average bat speed.  Aggressive gap to gap approach with his barrel working level though the zone.  Strength and bat whip with his exit velocity reaching 96 mph.  Advanced hitter with feel for the barrel.  Looks to play through balls on the infield.  Fights to get hand and feet in sync with some stiffness at catch.  Short arm action, throwing from a ¾ slot.  Arm peaked at 81 mph across the diamond.  Recorded a 4.56 in the 30-yard dash and 7-1 in the standing broad jump.  
Simple delivery with small rocker to an average leg kick.  Long arm swing to a high-3/4 slot.  Easy arm with a quick hand.  Lands on-line with a closed toe and aggressive back side.  Fastball sat 78-81 with sink to the arm side.  Attacked the zone with fastball.  Breaking ball is sharp, using near fastball hand speed.  11/6 tilt, late, at 71-73.  Slows the arm some on the change-up at 73-75.  Some fade, missing to the arm side with the pitch. 

01.14.18
Average build at 5-foot-10, 175 pounds.  Right handed hitter impressed with an aggressive swing and barrel awareness, creating an exit velocity of 84 mph.  Some uphill leverage as the swing is geared to the pull side gap.  Works from a balanced stance, loading with rhythm and a short stride.  Quick bat through the zone, matching a good strength level in the swing.  Defensively the feet can get heavy at times, lacking some rhythm but the hands do work and catch the ball consistently.  Exchanges to a long arm action and high-3/4 slot.  Shows carry and a feel for accuracy at 77 mph across the diamond.  Speed and agility test should improve with age.  Ran a 3.16 in the twenty and a 5.44 in the 5-10-5 agility test.  Standing broad jump recorded at 7’8”. 
On the mound, there is arm strength and a feel for a 12/6 breaking ball.  Works to stay tall through balance, using a long arm swing to get to an over-the-top release point.  Front side works off the line early, landing open, as the shoulders create some uphill leverage.  Fastball peaked at 78, sitting 76-77.  Around the zone, the pitch tended to be elevated in one of his first bullpens of 2018.  Overhand curveball works with good hand speed, showing tight spin at times.  The 12/6 pitch missed down throughout the early bullpen at 66-68.  Change-up is a distant third pitch, ranging 70-72 with decent hand speed.
