9/23/23

Prep Baseball All-American Game: Offering a healthy mix of projection and polish in a 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame, Clauss continues to improve the entire profile. Simple actions at the plate with a shoulder-height handset and quick twitch leg trigger. Shows advanced barrel control and whip through the zone that allow the Texas A&M commit to stay on-plane consistently. Good actions in the middle-infield with quality footwork and ability to make accurate throws from multiple arm angles.

Ethan Clauss, Palo Verde (NV), 2025 Texas A&M
Positional Profile: SS/2B The top ranked 2025 in Nevada with present tools that seem to just now be scratching the surface of what is to come.
Body: 6-1, 170-pounds. Lean, athletic build. Twitchiness is starting to shine through and is present in both his offensive and defensive games. Plenty of room to add strength with power expected to mirror that added physicality.
Hit: RHH. Athletic, squared set up. Subtle hand rhythm. Sinks back into load with slight coil in his upper half. Compact, effecient path to the ball. Low effort, consistent swing with feel to the big part of the yard and flashes of power to the pull side. High, two handed finish with balance throughout. In-game produced a QAB with advanced understanding of the strike zone.
Power: 91 max exit velocity, averaged 84 mph. 335' max distance.
Arm: LH. INF-82 mph. Short, quick arm cycle. Produces easy carry. Showed his ablity to change arm angles to maintain fluidity through the field/throw process. Projected size and strength gains will keep him on the left side of the infield.
Defense: Improved lateral range with increased foot speed. Feet work well through the ball. Feel for the plays outside his feet. Advances actions throughout that should keep him at shortstop at the next level.
Vizual Edge: 72.91 Edge Score
