07.25.17
Physical with a strong lower half in a 6-foot, 200 pound frame.  Balanced from the right side.  Uses a weight shift to start the timing, with a leg kick.  Long aggressive stride as the bat head works to a vertical position for launch.  Quick bat through the zone with strong hands.  Level, gap-to-gap approach with rhythm.  Exit velocity peaked at 89 mph.  Slight side saddle at time in his setup.  Good hands.  Head and eyes track pitches.  Active blocker that “wants to”.  Feet work well with pitches in his frame, allowing for accuracy.  Balls outside the frame, there is a lack of sync in the feet and hands.  Can let the ball get deep at times.  Low exchanges at times as pop times ranged 2.09-2.22 with carry, staying true.  Positional velocity peaked at 79 mph. 
On the bump the fastball played hard at 80-84 after a long day behind the plate.  At times erratic, there were enough strikes.  Average leg kick, loads the back side.  Good tempo and direct lines.  Quick arm works from an over-the-top slot.  Breaking ball ranged 66-70 with 11/5 action.  Slows the arm to feel for the pitch.  Erratic command of the spinner.

Strong, mature build at 6-foot-1, 215 pounds.  Pop times ranged 2.07 - 2.08 with a positional velocity of 80 mph from the crouch.  Strong arm swing, short and to a high-¾ release.  Long feet.  Arm strength over quickness.  Tends to exchange low, allowing the ball to fade.  Some accuracy and carry on each throw.  Set up with the glove side set forward and the body slightly side saddled.  Hands work with some effort.  Showed a willingness and “want to” to block.  Right handed hitter is slightly closed in an athletic position to start.  Leg kick sets his shoulders slightly uphill.  Loose and carries length through the point of contact.  Very aggressive demeanor.  Quick bat through the zone.  Fluid rhythm worked to produce line drives, staying to the pull side.  


From the mound, works with a strong arm swing and fluid delivery to produce a quick arm.  Fastball bumped 85, sitting 81-83, heavy with some run.  Showed an ability to work downhill, but had sequences where he was elevated.  Breaking ball works with 11/5 tilt and gradual break, starting up out of the hand.  Curveball touched 68, while being able to stay in the zone.  Change up  showed fastball look-alike hand speed, ranging 72-73, although erratic around the zone.
