Athletic with quickness present.  Stands 6-foot-3, 173 pounds.  Long arm action to an over-the-top slot with quickness in the hand.  Fastball at 85-88.  Breaking ball is hard, still maturing, sitting 73-74.  12/6 tilt can be inconsistent and there is the occasional hump out of the hand but the breaker has a chance to be an out pitch down the line.  Worked out of the stretch only with a simple delivery and very stable head.

Intriguing athlete whose tools are ahead of his skill.  Big ceiling ahead as the lanky, wiry 6-foot-3, 170 pound frame continues to fill out.  Solid follow as a dual prospect. Ran a 7.00 sixty on the laser timer. Continued to put up big numbers with an exit velocity of 95 mph off the barrel and a positional velocity of 87 mph from the outfield.  On the bump, the fastball touched 90. A right handed hitter, Seymour is balanced and tall with his hands set high. Vertical bat. Handsy load working down and back before loading slightly back up. Short stride.  Some length in the swing, with quickness and looseness. Average barrel awareness but ball jumps when on the barrel. Line drive approach working gap-to-gap. Good rhythm and balance throughout. Finishes high with his hands.  From the outfield, athletic and quick to the ball. Easy, quick, clean exchanges with a long arm swing to an over-the-top slot. Average accuracy with advanced carry.

On the bump, the fastball sat 84-87 in the wind-up before ramping up to 87-90 out of the stretch.  Much better timing in the hands and arm swing out of the stretch with less movement and better head stability.  Lands about 1 step across his line and can get rotational with some head whack at release as the front side clears early.  Long arm swing, stiff at times, works to an over-the-top slot. Good angle to the fastball with occasional sink when down in the zone.  Erratic with a breaking ball that can just spin and remain elevated. As he gets extension, late, hard, 12/6 tilt, short at times looks to be a pitch that could miss bats.  Curveball ranged 70-73. Change-up is used as the third pitch at 76.

Exciting athlete with a young frame.  Lanky build at 6-foot-2, 167 pounds.  Easy to project as he begins to mature and add strength to the frame.  Power and quickness exist, running a 4.02 thirty and 4.12 5-10-5 agility shuttle.  Very impressive 10’4” standing broad jump.  From the outfield the arm is long and loose, exploding through a high-3/4 slot.  Positional velocity of 88 showing some feel for accuracy.  Works to play through the ball, staying athletic in his base and through the exchange.  Offensively, right handed hitter is balanced, loading back and using a short stride toward the plate.  Power potential is evident when the ball is on the barrel.  Exit velocity of 84 can jump with more barrel awareness.  Quick bat works for extension, wanting line drives, working gap-to-gap.  Raw athlete with a high ceiling as he continues to mature.

On the mound, everything seems to have upside as the athleticism plays through the delivery.  Erratic at times, fastball ranged 82-85.  Run and cut at times based on pitch location.  Breaking ball is hard, lacking consistent command.  Late 10/4 tilt ranged 72-74.  As he gains feel and cleans his line, the pitch should miss bats consistently.  Change-up is still developing with inconsistent hand speed, straight at 72-75.  Simple delivery with an average leg kick and stable head.  Long, loose arm swing gets to an exaggerated over-the-top release.  Strides on-line, with the foot strike slightly closed.  Hips retract as the back flattens for extension.

08.09.17
Long and athletic, yet still very raw in his development.  6-foot-2, 160 pounds.  Ran a 7.05 sixty.  Produced 83 from the outfield and on the mound.  Exit velocity was up to 88 off the barrel.  Defensively, the hands are aggressive, at times hard, through the ball.  Fluid feet and exchanges into an over-the-top slot with above average arm speed.  Loose, showed advanced accuracy and carry.  Right handed hitter starts balance.  Bars the front arm on the load as the hands work from a low launch point.  Short strider.  Above average bat speed, is level through the zone.  Swing can get long.  Average barrel awareness.  Looseness and strength is present.

On the mound, the fastball ranged 79-83 from the over-the-top slot.  Long arm action and average balance point, works level and on-line.  Breaking ball has gradual 11/5 arc at 64-67.  Change-up is in play at 68-71 with near fastball hand speed.
