Average frame with athleticism present at 5-foot-11, 160 pounds.  Repeats the delivery with an average leg kick and long arm action that can bottom out slightly.  On-line and square as the arm gets to an over-the-top slot.  Angle to the fastball when down.  Fastball ranged 81-84, getting swing and miss when paired with the breaking ball in the zone.  Breaking ball has depth and creates issues for hitters at 71-73.  Late, downer 12/6 tilt, working from a similar window as the fastball.  Has the ability to add and subtract on the breaking ball throughout counts.  Change-up to left handed hitters mostly from a slightly lower slot with a slightly slower hand.  Straight at 73-75.  Occasionally sinks with better extension.

Young frame is beginning to add strength.  Average build at 5-foot-11, 160 pounds.  Loose, simple swing from the right side.  Balanced and open, loading back with ease, using a short stride to repeat his launch position.  Good hands with better than average bat speed and good feel for the barrel.  Exit velocity peaked at 87, staying level while working the middle of the field.  Good rhythm throughout.  On the infield, works with athleticism playing through the ball.  Clean, easy exchanges with an average arm swing, clean and over-the-top.  Produces carry and accuracy.   Positional velocity of 83 across the diamond.  Showed quickness with a 4.15 5-10-5 agility shuttle.  Also ran a 4.11 thirty and posted a standing broad jump of 9’4”.
On the mound, repeats the delivery, maintaining looseness with an over-the-top slot.  Fastball plays straight, occasionally cutting when throwing to the glove side.  Ranged 82-84, working down hill with angle.  Breaking ball spins well at 64-67.  Downer action, occasionally around it in the late winter bullpen.  Pushes the change-up occasionally, slowing the arm at times.  When thrown with handspeed, change fades to the arm side.  Sat 74-79.  Tall through the delivery, allowing the shoulders to tilt uphill creating leverage.  Lands square and on-line.  Finishes with an athletic posture and extension.

Maturity ahead for the young 5-foot-10, 145 pounder.  Catches the ball with ease on the infield, securing it to the mid-section.  Soft hands and fluid footwork.  Does not waste effort.  Quick, clean exchanges with an athletic base work to a high-3/4 slot.  Slot is laid off slightly, when trying to create arm speed, turning the ball over early and barring the arm slightly.  Has accuracy.  Throws peaked at 75 across the diamond.  Right-handed hitter is balanced, using a weight shift back with a short stride.  Loads the bat head to a vertical position.  Loose actions, repeats the swing showing good barrel awareness.  Exit velocity should improve with added strength, topping at 82.  Level swing, showed occasional uphill leverage, worked the middle of the field.  Ran a 7.55 sixty.

On the mound, showed different slots with the fastball, working to command the ball more than turn it loose.  Did work up to 77-79 in the second inning but sat 75-77 in the first from an over-the-top-slot.  Drops down to a side-arm slot occasionally at 73-75 and occasional arm side run.  Breaking ball ranged 60-64 with 12/6 shape.  Slowing the arm slightly, the ball has a hump out of the hand and gradual arc.  Spin appears somewhat tight as the shape has maturity.  Presents feel of the pitch, throwing it for a strike and expanding down at times.  Arm works with quickness as the body remains tall through balance.  Glove points to set the front side and the delivery has smooth rhythm.  Shoulder remain level and the foot lands on-line.  Change-up is third pitch but use-able at 67-69.  Straight, the arm slows slightly, but the pitch features in the strike zone.

Some strength in the young 5-foot-9 145 pounder.  Plays low and loose at short catching the ball consistently with fluid footwork and clean exchanges.  Hands work from the catch to the exchange point around his chin.  Short arm action to a high-3/4 slot, showing accuracy and average carry.  74mph across the infield.  Right handed hitter begins with a balanced stance, loading back with some stiffness in the setup, loading with waggle in the bat head.   Stride is short, at times non-existant, working to create some timing.  Better than average bat speed, works level, staying gap-to-gap.  Good hand-eye, showing barrel awareness throughout.  Loose hands and ease as the bat enters the impact zone. Exit velocity off the bat measured at 82mph.  Ran a 7.51 sixty.

Right hander has some athleticism with room to add maturity and strength to the frame.  Over-the-top slot with a slight stab at the bottom, but looseness through the slot.  Tall at balance with good head stability.  High leg kick with level shoulders and works on-line.  Fastball ranged 77-78, straight, but seeming to play harder than readings.  Curveball is a big downer, with potential swing and miss ability.  Spin ranged 63-67 with 12/6 shape and late action.  Slows the arm on the breaker at times, looking for feel, but the spin got tighter as he threw it harder.  Change up is a service-able third pitch sitting 69-70.  Slowed the arm some, but created arm side run on the pitch.
