PROCASE

6-foot-2, 200-pound right-handed hitting infielder.  Impressive player out of New Jersey. The movements are athletic and he can really swing the bat. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 95 mph. Starts with his feet wide and uses a small pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches. The swing path is flat and simple to the ball. Bottom half is under control and he hammers the ball. Ran a 7.4 sixty on the laser and threw 89 mph across the diamond.  The feet work at third and the arm is plenty. The glove is solid and flashy. Overall, a legit pro prospect at the high school level.

No. 1 in the 2018 class is 3B Justyn-Henry Malloy (St. Joseph Regional). Malloy committed to Vanderbilt this weekend after a very successful summer where he earned a Team USA roster spot, a gold medal, and MVP honors. Our National Scouting Supervisor, Nathan Rode, recently discussed the exciting summer with Malloy and wrote about it here: Malloy Earns Gold Medal, MVP Honors. Malloy has a mature, physical build and has a knack for hitting baseballs hard and far. The corner infielder hit .538 in the Pan American Championships.

4/2/16 - Justyn Henry Malloy stands at 6-feet-1, 185-pounds as a righty hitting corner infielder.  Malloy has a balanced approach, and looks confident in his crouch at the plate. He raises his hands above his right ear, and utilizes a toe tap as a timing mechanism. Malloy’s video shows that his hands tended to drift forward slightly on this day. Probably attributed that to a northern kid still getting used to seeing live pitching early on in the season, but nonetheless, it still occurred. Malloy cocks his hands in a loaded position even before the pitcher starts his motion. As the pitch comes in, his hands start to cheat a little forward. Still a sophomore early on in his second high school season, expect Malloy to make an adjustment and become a little more fluid in his swing. His superb hand speed is shown on the video of his hit, despite slight hand leakage.  

7/30/19:Has been a well-known prospect in the Northeast for years. He was buried on the veteran-laden roster for national champion Vanderbilt as a freshman, but he has shined with the bat this summer for Newport, hitting .327/.528/.541 with five homers and six doubles in 98 at-bats. Plenty physical at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Malloy’s raw strength and bat speed has never been in doubt, but he has impressed with his patience at the plate this summer, drawing 36 walks against 33 strikeouts. He’s a heavier-footed defender at third base but has some decent actions and could battleJayson Gonzalezfor the starting job at the hot corner next spring. (Fitt)
