8/10/21

Physical: The recent Eastern CT State commit stands an athletic 5-foot-10, 165lbs with two-way feel. 7.11 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Up-tempo, balanced stance from an even position. Utilized a directional lift and replace stride towards the pitcher, initiating a flat, simple bat-head through the hitting zone. Drove the ball from CF to LF line, able to lift on pitches thrown above the belt. Recorded a T86 mph bat-exit velocity (via Trackman) with good bat to ball skills flashing over the course of his BP round. Posted an impressive 64% line drive rate with balance in the approach and mostly singles power at the moment. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop operated with low posture and quickness in either direction, showing a proper wide base at the fielding window. Beat the ball to the spot with some pace to the target, making it a point to work hard early in routes. Accurate 83 mph arm and can slide all over the infield. 

Pitching: RHP - The righty started off the left side of the rubber with good tempo down the slope into footstrike. Landed into a firm front-side, creating some efficiency in the delivery, H ¾ release and found the zone consistently. The FB ranged 81-83 mph with big arm-side run (19 inches HM max) up to around T2240rpms. Mixed a well-spun, swing/miss 70-72 mph SL at 2500rpms as a plus pitch.


6/28/21

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-10, 165lb frame with good connection and tangible strength. 7.24 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, even stance at a moderately upright position as the knees showed a slight bend to start; quick rhythm in the hands eventually initiating through a flat path on time with a leg lift stride. Was able to produce a high contact, hard barreled batting practice round to all fields, spraying line drives through the middle of the field (27% line drive rate, 64% fly ball rate via Trackman). Stayed off the ground and very consistent in his round (T86 mph bat-exit velocity, 310 foot batted ball distance) and showcased ready doubles power to the LCF gap when getting the hands extended on the ball. Top of the order type skillset with more power coming as he holds strength. 

Defensively: The middle infielder demonstrated good, low posture with graceful actions during defensive evals; stalked the baseball with a soft glove hand operating loosely out in front. Funneled inward accurately to the chest, releasing with some pace out of a quick, H ¾ slot (85 mph arm, accurate). Easy left side of the infield appeal and the feet match the arm talent, able to handle plays in any direction and finish on the backend. 


2/16/21

Physical: Strong 5-foot-10, 165 lbs with athleticism in the actions. 7.15 runner in the 60.

Offensively: Balanced slightly open stance with bend in the knees, slight lean over the belt and the hands just above the back shoudler; gets into back side on a leg hang and stride back to even while the front shoulder turns down and in getting some barrel tilt; aggressive through the lower half with a good feel for the barrel (73% On Plane Efficiency per Blast Motion); stays behind the ball well with pop to the pull side gap. Peak exit velo 89 MPH per Trackman.

Defensively: Plays low to the ground with athletic actions; the glove is soft fielding the ball in front with quick, clean transfers; the arm is strong and accurate with the ability to throw from multiple angles while making the play on the run with relative ease. INF: 87 MPH

7/06/20

Physical: Lean and athletic 5-foot-11, 150-pound frame. 7.10 runner in the 60-yard dash.  

Offensively: RHH. Tall, open stance with the hands sitting idle in front of the ear by the head during setup. Utilized a leg hang stride with advanced control and ability to sit back into the drive leg throughout the movement in order to initiate a quick, slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone upon launch. Showcased a middle of the field approach during batting practice with feel for the hands in getting through to extension. The barrel whipped through contact creating advanced pop to the pull side when striking it out in front of the plate, recorded a top of 89 mph bat-exit velocity during batting practice. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop featured a low center of gravity with rangy movements to either side of his body. Smooth lateral quickness created easy first step decisions in routes and allowed for a sub 4.15 second pace from the left side of the infield which impressed during defensive evaluations. Funneled the ball into the body while fielding it out in front with quick catch and throw skills out of a high ¾ slot. SS - 85 mph
