NY Games (June 25-27, 2017)

Lanky 6-foot-5, 180-pound right-hander, ran a 7.4/60. Pitching - uses height to get downward plane on fastball at 82-83 MPH, evidence of arm-side run, clean arm action, effectively uses hip tilt at balance points to create power, maintains motion on 2-to-8 curveball at 64-67 MPH. Offensively - loose and fluid swing, keeps bat on level path through the strike zone, repeatable  motion, full extension with slight upper cut for an exit velocity of 88 MPH, shows some lower body engagement, further counter rotation between upper and lower torso will add to power. Defensively - clean footwork, fundamentally sound, smooth transfer to accurate arm at 83 MPH.
Preseason All-State (February 20, 2017)
Szablewski stands in at 6-foot-5, 180-pounds with a tall and lean athletic frame. Ran a 7.27 – 60, which is slightly over his best previously recorded time of 7.02 recorded in September of 2016. Offensively- Rightly sets up square to the pitcher in a wide base with his feet outside shoulder width. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso holding the hands above the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement prior to delivery. On pitch his trigger is a knee raise to stride forward while his hands move back slightly to get into a good hitting position. He shows quick hands into the hitting zone with good upward lift barrel action throughout the zone into a high one handed finish. His lower body rotation is good getting whole frame into the swing locking in on the front side. He demonstrated consistent contact and gap to gap potential during his round with a fluid and smooth swing. Recorded an exit velocity of 91 MPH, which is a 2 MPH improvement from September 2016. Defensively- Moves well to baseball for a taller player. Fields well and comes through with a quick shuffle versus a traditional crow hop gaining ground towards intended target. Good outfielder arm swing with proper release point. Was accurate and recorded a positional arm velocity of 83 MPH, which is 3 MPH shy of his previous best recorded mark of 86 MPH. Pitching- Sets up on the left side of the rubber in a tall position. He steps to the side quietly before bringing his lead leg up above hip crease into his power position then drives forward to foot strike remaining closed. Has good separation generating a long and loose arm with a high ¾ release point into an occasional recoil when throwing his fastball. Fastball was in the 82-84 MPH range while his Curveball had 12/6 action and was 67-69 MPH. Overall a solid dual position prospect.
NY All-Star Games (September 17, 2016)
Szablewski stands an impressive 6-foot-5, 180-pounds with easy weight projection from his lanky lean frame. At the plate he uses a shoulder width stance, hands start by his head, on the pitch he uses a leg-lift with stride, bat gets more upright, hands drop in the slot. Hips open slightly too early effecting some power, exit velocity still at 89 mph off a tee with his long levers generating above average bat-speed. Some lift through contact with a full-finish. Defensively, shows a lot to dream on from the outfield position. Athletic for his size evidenced by his 7.02 60 yard dash time, above average arm-strength at 86 mph with some carry to the target, rangy and long and still very raw. Pitching, fastball was bit down from previous events, but a long spring and travel season will do that. Fastball sat 79-81 with depth coming from his 6-foot-5 frame. Curveball has 11/5 later shape and appears to be a pitch hes very comfortable throwing. A must follow from the WNY area.
New York Games (June 27-29, 2016)
Stands 6-foot-5, 180-pounds with a tall lean frame. The dual guy showed tremendous upside throughout the event starting with an impressive round of BP consistently barreling balls up and showing above average power for a 2018. The tools are strong across the board running a 7.02 60, 89-mph exit speed and a 82-mph from the outfield. Offensively- Sets up balanced with hands above ear level. Attacks the ball with slight loop and steady incline. Uses his lower half well allowing the hips to clear and generate power. Pitching- On the mound he posts tall on his backside and works with slow deliberate tempo down hill. With raw mechanics he's been 80-83-mph. CB sat 68-70. With increased work on the mound and arm strength he projects to be a potential high velocity kid in the coming years.  
Preseason All-State (February 28, 2016)
 Szablewski stands 6-foot-4, 180-pounds with a long lean frame.  This 2018 dual guy has plenty of athletic ability and an extremely high ceiling both in the outfield and on the mound.  Offensively-  Sets up wide and uses a small toe tap while loading hands back at foot strike. Bat path elevates slightly throughout and finishes with a loose one hand follow through. Has great pop in the bat with an 88-mph exit velocity. Defensively- Showed the highest position velocity of the 2018 class at 86-mph. Is certainly a prospect on both sides of the coin. Christian ran a 7.33 60-yard dash, was down the line in 4.22, and has been clocked up to 83-mph consistently on the mound. One that will certainly be worth watching in the 2018's as his tools already project him to be a next level guy.
