6-foot-3, 180-pound right-handed pitcher and outfielder. He ran a 7.22 sixty at the event. The approach in the outfield is athletic and online. The arm works free and clean as he threw 80 mph to the plate from right-field. The bat has an exit velocity of 89 mph. The setup is even in base and the front foot gains ground to the baseball as it approaches the plate. The path is uphill through contact as he displayed a 1-handed finish after contact with the baseball. On the mound, the delivery has crossfire to the feet and slot is slightly above 3/4 in height. The top half stays closed through the leg drive and he finishes out front. The arm works clean and he shows deception. The fastball sat 79-80 mph with arm side run. The spin pitch is big in shape and needs more fastball hand speed added to it, sat 67-68 mph. The changeup is a developing pitch for him. The frame is thin railed as he can add strength and weight. 

Exit Velocity- 89 mph

OF Velocity- 80 mph

6-foot-1, 180-pound right-handed pitcher and right-handed hitting outfielder. The approach in the outfield is athletic and under control. He threw 74 mph during the outfield portion of the workout. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 77 mph. The setup is upright and he gains minimal ground as the ball approaches. The path is in and out of the zone too quickly as the bat path needs to be flattened. On the mound, the fastball sat 71-72 mph. The spin pitch is 66-67 mph and showed solid shape to it. The change of pace is a knuckle ball which sat at 60-62 mph. The delivery has crossfire to the feet and the slot is 3/4. The arm is whippy and loose. The frame projects and the delivery is repeated, as he showed solid direction to the plate. I like the projection on the mound.

Tee Exit Velocity - 77 mph

OF Velocity- 74 mph
