Notes

Comments

6/18/20

Body: 6/7, 180 pounds. Long, lanky, and thin. Plenty of potential as he adds strength.
Delivery:
 Stable through balance with a small rocker, easy turn, and lift to the mid-chest. Loads the backside, creating some uphill through his shoulders. Lower half works on-line, landing square. Solid extension
Arm Action: R. Long arm swing with some rhythm present. High-3/4 slot. Average to above arm speed.
FB: T82, 78-82 mph. 1889 rpm. Strike thrower with the ability to move the fastball to each side. 1:15 spin tilt out of the hand. Some sink and fade present
CB: 60-61 mph. 1433 rpm. Big, gradual 10/4 tilt. Arm slows creating the a slight hump out of the hand and gradual tilt.
CH: 66-71 mph. 1190 rpm. Slightly slowed arm speed. Good feel. Has fade

11/03/19

Long, lanky build at 6 foot 6, 179-pounds.  Small rocker to the side, lifting to the mid-chest while closing the front side at balance.  As the hands separate just above the belt, the hips load and begin down the mound.  Level, lands on-line and square.  A bit of short strider, the extension is average and can improve.  Long arm swing works through some stiffness to a high-3/4 slot.  Fastball is straight, occasionally cutting when on the glove side, sitting 76-79.  Fastball works with some ease, suggesting it could jump quickly.  Change-up has early run with solid arm speed at 70.  Change has a chance to be a weapon that keeps hitters off balance and can create swing and miss.  Still working to find consistent rhythm in the delivery.  As the delivery becomes more consistent, look for the hand speed and stuff to take a jump. 
Hits from the right side with a tall, open setup with a narrow base.  Hands work back during the load with an average stride.  Short barrel path to the ball with some quickness to the hands.  Pull approach with his exit velocity recorded at 87 mph.  Active feet around the first base bag with average hands.  Clean transfers with an accurate arm that topped at 64 mph.  Recorded a 7.51 in the 60.

8/11/19

Lanky, projectable frame at 6-foot-6, 170 pounds.  Average kick to the low chest with some rhythm throughout the delivery.  Tall through balance.  Uphill leverage through the shoulders, working on-line out of balance.  Lands in-line and square with the front foot.  Short strider.  Medium arm swing with some stiffness works to a high-3/4 slot.  Three pitches in the zone.  Fastball is straight at 78-82.  Gradual tilt to the breaking ball with arcing 10/4 tilt.  Around at times, the  breaking ball ranges 61-62.  Slows the arm on the change-up.  Straight, the change is able to attack the zone, ranging 70-74.

06.11.18

Lanky 6-foot-5, 162 pound frame.  Plenty of projection left in the frame as he continues to mature and add strength.  Works tall through his delivery with the arm swing working through some stiffness to a high-¾ slot.  Some uphill leverage through the shoulders, working on-line and landing square with some recoil at the finish.  Arm speed should improve as the body gains more coordination and strength. Fastball ranged 74-78 with slight sink and a feel for the strike zone.  Gradual 12/6 tilt to the breaking ball at 56-60. Slows the arm some on spin, and feel for the pitch can be erratic. The change-up works with solid hand speed, straight, attacking the strike zone at 65-66.  Change-up over breaking ball at this time and has a chance to be a weapon vs hitters. Ran a 7.53 on the laser in the sixty yard dash.
