7.44
Exit Velocity:
95
Positional Arm: 
76
Stands 6-foot-3, 215 with strength in the frame. Moves well around the bag with a clean glove, short arm action, plenty of arm-strength to make the tough throws. In the box he uses quiet hand movements, great leverage with some incline in his barrel path, power potential with 95 mph exit velo.
NYS Games (June 25-27, 2017)

Sturdy 6-foot-3, 195-pound RHP with a pitcher’s frame, ran a 7.74/60. Pitching - out of ¾ slot, uses height to get downward plane on fastball at 83-85 MPH, maintains release point on 12-to-6 curveball at 68-70 MPH. Offensively - loads heavy, brings bat through strike zone on level path, full extension after contact with an exit velocity of 89 MPH, repeatable motion, lower body engagement will add to power. Defensively - clean footwork, sure hands, smooth transfer with accurate arm at 75 MPH.


WNY Travel Workout (January 16, 2017)

Norsen has a large and strong frame at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. Recorded a time of 4.42 seconds from home to first base, a big improvement over his previous best in July 2016. Offensively- Upright stance that is slightly open. Hands are aligned close to back ear. Small stride that gets his stance to even. Weight shifts forward during swing. Hands are short to ball with strong extension through contact. Swing is slightly uphill, creating natural loft. Recorded a personal best exit velocity of 87 MPH off the tee. Pitching- Begins with feet narrow on first base side of rubber. Legs are straight and hands start in front of chin. Small side step to left as right foot toe taps onto rubber. Knee lift comes just above waist at balance point. Long stride that lands in line with home plate. Long arm circle on backside that gets slightly behind body to 1B side. Traditional ¾ arm slot. Fastball sat between 83-85 MPH, up slightly from previous bests. Also spun a curveball at 71-72 MPH and changeup at 74-75 MPH.

NY All-Star Games (September 17, 2016)

Norsen stands with great size at 6-foot-2, 195-pounds with a physical appearance. At the plate he uses a wide approach with balance, slight stride forward on the pitch, long back load. Path to the ball is slightly long, barrel gets fairly level through the contact zone, uses his upper body to produce most of his power at the plate. 86 mph exit velocity and expect him to only keep improving. Defensively he shows a larger target from the corner, stays behind the ball and throws through his body with a strong corner arm. Pitching, he looked slightly tired after a long spring and summer season, velocity was down sitting mostly 78-80, earlier this summer was sitting 82-83. Still very young and raw with front-line projection. 
Western NY Prospect Preview (July 5, 2016)
Brian is a solid 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. He ran a 4.73 home-to-1B. Offensively-  Starts at the plate in a tall stance with his hands right next to his head. Uses a controlled load; some length in the swing but finds the back of the ball; respectable exit velocity of  86 MPH. Solid line drive results. Improved lower half effort will allow for him to tap into his power potential. Defensively-  At 1B Norsen showed a soft glove; out in front with forehands and playing through the ball to his backhand side. Footwork releasing from the bag crosses over and he’s a bit upright when fielding.  Arm strength showed  72 MPH .  Pitching-  Brian begins with his feet at 45 degree angle and moves into a short quick side step. Displays a belly button high balance point; cross fire action created by slight stride to the arm side. Arm action is long  and fluid; working through a low ¾ ot ¾ slot.  Fastball sits  81-83 MPH. Curveball has good movement from right to left coming in at  72-74 MPH , while the Change-up sits  68-70 MPH; needs feel.
