7/28/21

Physical: Twitchy, efficient 5-foot-8, 160lb frame with athleticism. 7.19 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, upright stance as the feet started at shoulder-width. Utilized a toe tap stride while sinking into the lower half, initiating the bat head through a flat, direct path into the hitting zone. Could get handsy at times, manipulating the middle-in quadrants of the plate with a strong top hand and leadoff approach at the dish. Notched a T90 mph bat-exit velocity showing doubles power when synced up at the front of the plate. Able to handle velocity with mature at-bats in game, hunted pitches in advantage counts and rarely missed in his zone. Room to continue adding strength with a good ceiling down the road on offense. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop demonstrated quicker, rangy actions in either direction with ability to finish off plays using a strong, plus arm across the diamond from H ¾ slot. Glided downhill to the ball, beating it to the spot and let a soft glove hand play athletically inside/outside the left foot. Confident fielder that consistently sets himself up for advantageous hops at the window (88 mph arm, carry to the target). 

Pitching: RHP - The righty began off the left side of the rubber, working at a breakneck pace in the delivery. Featured above-average spin traits on a FB/CB pairing, dodging barrels with tunnel on a high heater (83-86 mph, jumpy) and a gradual, downer 67-69 mph CB to the bottom of the zone.


6/30/21

Physical: Twitchy, athletic 5-foot-9, 159lb frame with advanced feel in multiple phases. 7.23 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Shoulder-width, upright stance as the hands operated on the shoulder to start. Utilized a leg hang to initiate a flat, direct barrel path into the hitting zone. Showcased advanced bat control during his round, spraying hard line drive contact through the middle of the field (44% LD rate via Trackman). Stayed inside the ball at will with quicker bat speeds to the inner half, able to handle velocity. Posted a T90 mph bat-exit velocity at his peak with doubles power to pull. 

Defensively: The shortstop demonstrated natural feel on the defensive side of the ball. Bent at the waist, moving laterally with clean actions from a moderate posture, fielding cleanly off his left. Shuffled in rhythm holding pace towards the target, released from an accurate H ¾ slot (87 mph arm, game speed). 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the far left side of the rubber using a fast tempo in the delivery. Able to spin the baseball on both offerings, pounding the zone at 84-86 mph with carry at the letters. Mixed in a lateral 63-65 mph SL with consistent arm-speed and leverage.


4/03/21

Pitching: Builds momentum well with a leg lift to the chest before getting into the back side and driving down the mound, body is in sync at foot strike utilizing an efficient lower to accelerate over a strong post leg; long, whippy arm action through a clean 3/4 release. FB: Has life and ride (19" IVB) through the zone. SL: Slurvy action with 10-4 shape and up to 13" horizontal break. CH: Good hand speed with up to 13" arm side fade. 

2/18/21

Physical: Twitchy, lean and athletic 5-foot-8, 157-pound frame with plenty of room to hold significant strength; uber-efficient mover in all phases. 7.43 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. The righty started from a balanced, even stance with the hands positioned just above the shoulder to begin; utilized a leg lift stride while holding the backside leg in the posture in order to create stretch upon footstrike, unleashing the bat head through a flat, explosive path with jump to the pull side. Recorded a 36% line drive rate per Trackman Baseball and stayed inside the baseball well with a short swing, trust in his bat to ball skills. Notched an impressive 87 mph bat-exit velocity for his size with more to come in the near future. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop was dynamic in the middle, showcasing downhill footwork and obvious arm strength from a lightning-quick, high ¾ slot. Made all the plays with significant range to his glove hand side, the pace was there allowing above-average arm strength to finish off the play with a bang (88 mph INF velocity). Easily will stay on the left side moving forward, will become more trustworthy the more he adds strength and becomes more durable. Paired with the abilities on the mound, you’re looking at a legitimate two way prospect in the ‘23 class.
