2/22/22

Physical: 5-foot-11, 175 pounds; Strong, athletic build. 6.78 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH. Open setup, with feet shoulder width apart; bat positioned at a 45 degree angle. Loads straight back with a slight leg-kick for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing an aggressive lower half. Showed a short swing path with a two handed finish.  More line drives than fly balls and ground balls with a peak exit velocity of 94 MPH via Trackman. plus feel for the barrel with consistent hard contact.

Defensively: Starts with a balanced setup; uses prep hop while playing low to the ground. Hands are out in front with a seamless transfer. Moderate arm circle from a standard 3/4 arm slot. INF - 87 MPH.

7/28/21

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 170lb frame with some projection. 6.80 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Crouched, compact stance with the chest coiled slightly out over the plate. Utilized a leg hang in order to initiate a quick bat head over the rear hip and through a flat path into the hitting zone. Violent lower half operation that whipped the barrel into place, sequencing properly in the swing for a clean, efficient move to the baseball. Notched a 27% line drive rate (via Trackman) with comfortability using the pull-side of the field en route to a T93 mph bat-exit velocity at his peak. Strong top of the order tendencies with an accurate top hand that worked to find flush contact at the front of the plate; handled the inner half with some twitch available (362 foot batted ball distance). 

Defensively: The primary shortstop bounced around the diamond while staying light on his toes. The chest worked downhill and allowed the glove hand to attack, exchanging in rhythm to the throwing ear, releasing from a H ¾ slot (79 mph arm, accurate, threw well on the run). Made all the plays with lower posture and range in the arsenal. Moved to the outfield with centerfielder considerations, reading the ball and making quick decisions. Sprinted with momentum to the target, fielding off his left and funneled inward, getting in line and throwing accurately to the plate (78 mph arm).


6/28/21

Physical: Strong, athletic 5-foot-11, 170lb frame with good proportions and feel for his body available. 6.88 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Crouched, open stance at a low posture with the hands starting on the shoulder. Utilized a leg lift on time with a move slightly backwards, initiating through a flat path with tight, controlled turns over the backside. Let the hands go to work at the front of the plate, driving through extension and creating good leverage to the pull-side (40% line drive rate via Trackman). Posted a 93 mph bat-exit velocity with good connection and sequencing in the swing, adding a near 300 foot batted ball distance at his peak during the round (290 feet max). Top of the order considerations, able to hit upper level velocities with good barrel control and hand/eye coordination. 

Defensively: The middle infielder operated with confidence as the feet arrived on time, right-left to the baseball with chest over toes. Funneled cleanly inward using a quick glove tap before releasing from a short, H ¾ slot to the target (79 mph arm accurate). Changed slots on the run with feel across his body, took good routes to his backhand side, getting rid with pace. Then moved to the outfield with positional flexibility, getting through the ball athletically off his left side. Smooth transfers and a live 84 mph arm strength that carried to the glove (on target).


2/19/21

Physical: Strong, athletic build at 5-foot-11, 170 lbs. 7.08 runner in the 60.

Offensively: Slightly open stance with bend in the knees, lean over the belt while hands start down and relaxed with bat on the shoulder; initiates with a leg hang and stride gaining some ground while hands load to the back side of the shoulder; strong effort from the lower half clearing the hips, barrel is direct to contact with a slight uphill path to a long 1-hand finish creating back spin; solid line drive (38.5%) / fly ball (46.2%) contact with a peak exit velo of 89 MPH and average of 81 MPH per Trackman.

Defensively: Athletic footwork playing through the ball routinely; OF fields the ball outside of left foot with seamless transfers to a moderate arm swing through a high 3/4 release. INF: plays low fielding the ball out in front with a soft glove, clean transfers to a short arm action through a 3/4 release yielding strong throws at 86 MPH.

10/17/20

Physical: 5-foot-11, 170 pounds; lanky build with strength present in the lower half. 7.01 runner in the 60.
Offensively: RHH. Open stance with the back hip slightly pre loaded, keeps a relaxed bat on his shoulder; uses a small leg kick and rotates his torso away from the pitcher. Quick turn of the lower half, loads the back hip really well and fires quickly out of the load with an uphill barrel path that follows his shoulder plane very well. Occasionally spun off some pitches but did hit hard line drives to all parts of the field; peak Trackman exit velocity of 90 MPH.
Defensively: Light on his feet with good bend in the waist keeping him low to the ground; Moves feet well to get around the right side of the ball, ADV movements from SS. Soft hands that funnel easily to the belt and work into a smooth transfer and throw; Long take back out of the glove into a big swing, throws from a loose 3/4 slot . INF - 80 MPH.
