Notes

Comments

3/05/22

Aponte has a strong and compact build at 5-foot-9, 160-pounds. Ran the 60 yard dash in 7.30 seconds, while recording a top exit velocity of 87 MPH. Sets up at the plate in a wide and athletic stance, with his hands at shoulder height away from his body. Back elbow stays parallel to the ground throughout. Creates pre-pitch rhythm with his hands. Smooth weight transfer. Strong through contact, tons of firm contact to the opposite field. In the infield, Aponte worked to get around the ball, creates momentum through his throws. Top throwing velocity of 84 MPH. On the mound, starts straightforward towards the middle of the rubber. High energy, up tempo delivery. Lands with his feet even at foot strike. Even shoulder tilt. Loose arm, high ¾ slot. FB showed some run at times at 80-81 MPH. Ability to drop in the breaker for strikes, sat 68-69 MPH with more lateral break. CH with intent and depth at 73-75 MPH. 

10/24/21

Aponte has an athletic build at 5-foot-9 160-pounds. Ran the 60 yard dash in 7.56 seconds and recorded a top exit velocity of 84 mph. At the plate, starts in crouched stance with hands above backside. Small leg lift and stride to start swing as hands load down and back. Uphill swing with lift in finish. Took reps at SS during defense. Throws across the infield topped at 81 mph. Fields ball out front, loose arm action from a true-3/4 slot. On the mound, fastball topped at 80 mph and sat mostly 78-79 mph. Flashed a curveball at 68-71 with small, cutter-like break. Strong balance leg, extension on finish. Lands square.

6/19/21

Lean and athletic build at 5-foot-9, 160-pounds. Ran the 60 yard dash in 7.28 seconds while recording an exit velo of 88 MPH. Strong and athletic base in his stance with knees slightly inverted. Big weight shift onto his backside. Slight movement backwards in the hands. Toe tap in his stride. Strong through the zone and consistently finds his barrel. Recorded a defensive top velo of 83 MPH in the IF. Stays low, athletic to the ball. Quick, smooth transfer. Shortens up his steps as he nears the ball. On the mound, Aponte starts in the middle of the rubber, feet facing the third base line. Maintains rhythm and tempo through his delivery. Even shoulder tilt. Is able to stay tall and get over his frontside. Gets into his backside, rides the slope. Long, loose and clean arm action with a high slot. FB was in the zone at 79-82 MPH. CB had some slurvy shape to it at 65-69 MPH. Straight CH at 76-77 MPH. 

2/15/21

5-foot-8, 165lbs; compact athletic frame; 7.46 runner in the 60 yard dash. Slight bend at the belt with shoulder width feet, works a big barrel waggle as a timing mechanism. Shifts the weight back with a small toe tap and launches into the pitch at foot strike. Strength present in the upper half with a strong turn into pitch plane. 86 MPH exit velo while shooting the ball up the middle and the opposite way quite frequently. Displayed easy movements to the ball in the infield. Takes a small prep hop and moves laterally with ease, fields out in front and funnels to the chest. Works an easy transfer and throws from a low slot. Displayed some range while registering a 79 MPH arm strength in the infield eval. 

Showed clean, repeatable mechanics down the mound with the ability to apply late intent. Clean break out of the glove with an easy arm that gets up and fires on time from a high 3/4 slot. Fastball sat 77-78 MPH topping at 79 MPH with some life through the zone. Curveball showed tall shape at 63-66 MPH with a big difference in velo that has potential to be a quality breaking ball. Change up held 76-77 with late fade to the arm side.
