Notes

2/18/19

5 - foot-10, 140 pound two-way player ran 5.2 home the first. Athletics stance early in load then stiffens up, solid contact, line drive swing plane. Posted an 78 MPH exit velocity off the tee. In the infield, showed avg. tempo, a short arm action that was accurate to the bag with an extra tap in his release. Topped out across the infield at 66 MPH. On the mound, topped out at 78 MPH with his fastball and clean arm action.  Fastball shows carry through the zone and he throws strikes. High arm slot on breaking ball, good angle, good shape, lands for strikes with tight rotation. Above average feel for a change up for his age. Change up has solid Drop and fade action.
