9/11/19

Lanky frame with room to add strength at 5 foot 11, 160-pounds.  Fluid tempo to his delivery, staring with a step back behind the rubber, going into his leg lift that works up to his chest.  Hands work up to the top of his chest during the leg lift.  Arm works down out of the glove with his shoulders pointing uphill at the break, creating at high front side.  Gets down angle on his fastball from a high ¾ slot.  Fastball ranged from 73-77 mph, sitting mostly at 74-75 mph.  Feel for his curveball with 12/6 break at 60-61 mph.  Slider has across action at 65-67 mph.  Flashed a changeup with fade at 64 mph. 
Slightly open setup from the right side.  Uses a toe tap during his load.  Uses the whole field, squaring some balls up through the middle.  Gets jumpy into the ball at times.  Some strength in his swing with average bat speed.  Exit velocity recorded at 85 mph.  Feet look to work around the ball on the infield.  Average hands funneling to the belt after catch.  Shows the ability to get the ball out quick while using different arm angles.  Accurate arm to first base with his throws topping at 73 mph.  Recorded a 7.57 in the 60.

08.25.18

Average 5-foot-10, 140 pound frame.  Simple delivery to balance with an average leg kick as the posture works to a tall stance.  Head is slightly behind the hips as he works to foot strike, with some uphill leverage in the shoulders.  Front side uses a glove point as the arm swing is long, bottoming out slightly, getting to an over-the-top release with average hand speed.  Fastball has slight run to it at 72-73, touching 75.  Works on-line and square, finishing with extension.  Throws slider and curveball with the slider at 64-66.  Erratic it can show length at times.  Curveball has more tilt at 57.  Change-up appears to be second pitch at this time with deception in the hand speed and some arm side run.  Sitting 60-63, there is feel for the zone.
Right handed is open, tall, and narrow with bat waggle in the setup.  Aggressive stride works back to even.  Not much of a load as the bat waggles through the launch position.  Short path, lacking extension and working to find the barrel, there is average bat speed.  Exit velocity of 76 mph off the barrel.  On the infield, plays through the catch, with the feet moving forward and the hands occasionally deep at the catch.  Clean exchanges from the point of the catch to a long arm swing and high-3/4 slot.  Some effort in the release hurting accuracy.  71 mph across the diamond.  Ran a 7.56 sixty.

08.27.17
Average 5-foot-10, 140 pound frame.  Around the zone with all three pitches.  Fastball played straight, with occasional arm side run.  Ranged 68-71.  Long arm swing gets to an over-the-top slot.  Some effort in the release.  Some rhythm, shoulder can tilt uphill for leverage as the foot strikes on-line and square.  Two different breaking balls.  Curveball ranged 59-61 with inconsistent shape.  Working for 12/6 arc as the shoulders fight to get back down hill with arm speed.  Cutter is small with a short darting action at 64.  Change up works out of a slower arm speed at 60-62.  Occasional sink to the pitch. 
On the infield, the ball can get deep in stance as the hands have some effort through the catch.  Exchanges to an over-the-top slot with some accuracy at 66 mph across the diamond.  On the right side, wide, balanced stance with a vertical bat.  Shot stride, staying level through the zone.  Opposite field approach with some head discipline.  Strength should come with age.  Exit velocity up to 76 mph.  Ran an 8.06 sixty.
