7/06/20

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame with some strength present in the actions. 7.01 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Open, bent stance with plenty of movement in the setup and the hands deep at the shoulder.. Utilized a slight move backward coupled with a toe tap stride for the timing mechanism. Entered the hitting zone with some pull in the barrel head creating loft through a slightly uphill path. Worked primarily to the LF line while hitting into a stiff front side. Demonstrated ability to repeat the actions in the box. Recorded a 91 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball during batting practice. 

Defensively: Stood out defensively with perfect posture while fielding with a low center of gravity and weight over the front side allowing for downhill momentum through the fielding window. A soft glove hand played through the ball and contributed to the overall theme of playing at a quick pace in the middle. Smooth transfers and an accurate high ¾ arm-slot generated consistent 4.0 sec plays across the diamond with enough arm strength to stay on the left side of the infield moving forward. SS - 81 mph

The right handed hitter sprayed the ball all over the field during batting practice. Defensively, Brotz displayed active footwork in the infield. Takes his time to gather himself when making throws across the infield. Brotz is an athletic kid with fast twitch actions. Also ran a 6.91 in the 60 yard dash.
