9/23/17 5-foot-7, 150-pound right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance and initiates his swing with a leg-hang stride. Displayed a short swing path with above average rhythm and balance throughout. Barreled the baseball consistently with a bat exit velocity of 89 mph in batting practice and went 2-for-6 in game action while reaching base in four at bats. Showcased active feet and a soft glove hand defensively with accurate 74 mph arm strength across the diamond. Ran a 7.07 60-yard dash and sat 78-80 off the mound while also commanding a curveball at 68-69 with sharp 11/5 break. Well-rounded skill set will give Asari opportunities to get on the field early at the next level at a number of positions.

Preseason All-State Showcase (February 11th, 2017)
Asari has an athletic build at 5-foot-6 135-pounds. Recorded an exit velocity of 85 mph. Shows good all around fundamentals with a feel of how to play the game. Offensively- starts with an opened, balanced stance with hands above back shoulder to start. Uses a leg kick to start load, hands load down and back. Controlled swing with tall finish. Able to hit to all fields. Hands and hips have fluid movements throughout the swing. Defensively-  shows great athleticism and lateral movements. Throws topped at 78 mph with backspin. Soft hands and clean, athletic exchange. Footwork is clean and fluid. Pitching- fastball topped at 79 mph, sat 78-79 for his outing. Curveball had gradual 12/6 bite at 65-67 mph. Up tempo delivery, smooth controlled actions throughout. Arm stroke has a hitch at the bottom as it looks like his arm pauses. Lands slightly closed causing him to spin off slightly toward the first base side. 

It's easy to overlook a 5-foot-6, 135-pound right-handed hitter, but that would be a mistake in the case of Asari, who ran a 6.90 60-yard dash and showed a good feel for hitting. Starts from an open stance and takes a controlled leg kick to square, holding his hands in a good launch position. Exhibits good balance and keeps head still throughout swing, staying inside the baseball and using the middle of the field during his BP round. Power not a big part of his game at the present time (76 mph exit velocity). Defensively, he has very good body control and his accurate throws have more carry than suggested by his 78 mph arm strength.
Compact delivery, lands across his body and throws out of a high three-quarter slot. Virtually every fastball he threw was pounded at the bottom of the strike zone with a little action at 78-79. Also featured a solid curveball at 68-69.
