6/28/21

Physical: Ultra-projectable 6-foot-1, 165lb frame with athleticism present. 7.07 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

 

Offensively: LHH - Shoulder-width, even stance as the hands operated flat on the shoulder to start. Utilized a barrel tip on time with a slight coil in a leg-lift as he initiated the bat head through a well turned, slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Showcased some whip at the plate, finishing deep to the backside shoulder with a mostly pull-side approach during batting practice. Recorded a T89 mph bat-exit velocity (via Trackman) featuring doubles power to the RCF gap (285 foot batted ball distance and a 50% line drive rate). Mature hitter that carried confidence over into good swings during game action; more power coming in the near future.

 Defensively: The primary shortstop moved fluidly in either direction, keeping above-average pace and good momentum to the target; fielded softly off his left foot, getting the hips in line and quickly releasing from an athletic, accurate H ¾ slot (79 mph arm). Able to move over the second base bag and finish off plays with range, and threw across his body with good arm strength on the run.

Hit into a stiff front side with leverage generating a lofty, middle of the field approach (80% fly ball rate). Created consistent backspin at the plate yielding a 300+ foot peak batted ball distance per Trackman Baseball. An 85 mph bat-exit velocity points towards lean strength at the moment and should increase as he continues developing physically down the line. 

Defensively: The primary middle infielder showcased length in the footwork on the approach but stayed smooth, arrived on time working towards the target at the fielding window, used one hand off of the middle-left side of his body, accurate funnels to beltline and a 74 mph arm strength across. Second baseman at the moment who might project to move over due to the ceiling he possesses.


7/30/20

Physical: Lean and projectable 6-foot, 155-pound frame with room to add strength / features plenty of athleticism throughout his game. 7.37 runner in the 60-yard dash. Offensively: LHH. Wide, slightly closed stance with the hands showing off moderate rhythm at the shoulder. Utilized a short lift and replace stride to initiate the hands through an efficient, flat barrel path and into the hitting zone. Comes up and out of the lower half with the posture on occasion making the hands go out and around the baseball, overall feel for the barrel in the box and liked to get the bat head extended out at the front of the plate. Hit into a stiff front side with a mainly pull-side approach during batting practice, recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 81 mph according to Trackman Baseball, generated a 311 foot maximum batted ball distance. Defensively: The primary middle infielder displayed solid defensive capabilities with smooth, lengthy strides and rangy actions to either side of his body, soft glove hand played out in front while getting downhill through the fielding window with a medium-low posture throughout. Made the play on the run effortlessly and fits the mold of a prototypical shortstop. Accurate, high ¾ arm-slot with a medium arm circle on throws across the diamond. INF - 72 mph

Russ was impressive during batting practice at the 2019 Fall Top Prospect Games. Russ displayed a flat bat path through the hitting zone. Defensively, the infielder displayed active footwork. Fields the ball slightly off center. Gets rid of the baseball with low effort throwing actions. Russ has a projectable lean athletic frame and is a must follow.
