NYS Games (June 25, 2018)

Exit Velocity: 
86
Positional Arm: 
74

Smaller frame, very athltic and strong evidenced by his 6.82 60 yard dash. Arm-strength was 74 from the OF, gets his boyd behind the ball on his throws. Slightly open stance in the box, strides back to even with a slight leg kick for timing. Above average hip transfer helping generate above aveage bat speed (86) from a mostly level barrel plane though contact.

Winter Open (February 11, 2018)
Physical 5-foot-9 165 pound OF that ran a 6.97 60 and 4.07 home-to-1B. Consistency under 7.0 over the years. Offensively- Slightly open stane with weight pre-loaded; easy leg kick with short take back of the hands. Stays behind the ball; some inconsistency in his swing path but finds the barrel more times then not. A mixed bag of results; shows some punch through the middle of the field. Exit velocity was 79 MPH. Defensively- Fundamental approach; works through the ball with a traditional crowhop. Arm action breaks across the belt and works out in front through a high 3/4 release point. Very accurate; 79 MPH arm strength (2 below past high of 81 MPH). 
ENY All-Star Games (September 17, 2017)
Bristow stands in at 5-foot-9, 165-pounds with a lean athletic frame. Offensively- Smooth swing with fluid body mechanics. Sets up square to the pitcher utilizing whole body frame in swing. Has an upward lift barrel path with potential gap to gap power. Swing looks free and easy with a lot of potential. Recorded an exit velocity 86 MPH, a 6 MPH increase from his previous best measure of 81 MPH set in July 2017. Defensively- Show a good approach getting underneath the baseball. Overall process of the transfer into the throw could be quicker. Crow hop mechanics are smooth gaining good ground on the throw. Moves well left/right and was accurate with his throws. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 76 MPH, 5 MPH shy of his best mark at 81 MPH set in July 2017.
WNY All-Star Games (September 24, 2017)
Bristow stands in at 5-foot-9, 160-pounds with a lean athletic frame. Offensively- Righty sets up square to the pitcher with his feet just outside his shoulders. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso holding the bat in front of his back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch, his trigger is a toe tap to stride forward while his hands move back into his hitting position. Utilizes good lower body rotation clearing the hips and getting the whole-body frame involved in the swing. Shows quick hands to the zone with a level barrel path throughout into a high two-handed finish. Demonstrated potential line drive ability up the middle and to the pull side during batting practice round. Recorded an exit velocity of 80 MPH, 1 MPH shy of his previous best recorded mark of 81 MPH set in July 2017. Overall a smooth fluid swing with high potential. Defensively- Good footwork and approach getting to the baseball. Shows good crow hop mechanics gaining ground throughout the transfer into a strong outfielder arm swing. Was accurate on throws and recorded a positional arm velocity of 75 MPH, 6 MPH shy of his previous best mark of 81 set in July 2017. Overall a solid 2019 collegiate prospect to keep an eye on.
Future Games (August 2-5, 2017)
Campus Series-Canisius (July 5, 2017)
Bristow stands in at 5-foot-9, 160-pounds with a lean athletic frame. Ran a 4.4 home to first. Offensively- Righty sets up square to the pitcher with his feet wide outside his shoulders. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso holding the bat above the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch, his trigger is a quick step forward while his hands move slightly back into his hitting position. Quick hands to the hitting zone with a slight upward lift barrel action throughout into a high two-handed finish. Good lower body rotation getting whole frame involved in the swing. Demonstrated good plate coverage and the ability to hit line drives to all fields during batting practice rounds. Recorded an exit velocity of 81 MPH, tying his previous recorded mark earlier in the summer in June 2017 and just shy of his best mark of 85 MPH in October 2016. Defensively- Has good footwork and approach to the baseball. Fluid footwork to get underneath the baseball in the outfield with good crow hop mechanics to gain ground and momentum before the throw. Has a good outfielder arm swing and is accurate with his throws. Recorded a positional outfielder arm velocity of 81 MPH, which is a 2 MPH improvement. Overall a strong collegiate prospect in the 2019 class to keep an eye on.
NY Games (June 25-27, 2017)
Athletic build at 5-foot-9, 160 pounds, ran a 6.81/ 60. Offensively - smooth and easy stroke, repeatable motion with slight upper cut, comfortable driving the ball to the middle third of the field with an exit velocity of 81 MPH., keeps weight back but could add power as he develops a smoother transfer and continues to understand how to use his core. Defensively - uses smooth, quick footwork to get behind ball and create momentum, accurate arm with a velocity of 79 MPH (up from 78 MPH in February), fluid transfer from glove to throwing hand, uses little extension with arm to create velocity.  
Preseason All-State (February 20, 2017)
Bristow stands in at 5-foot-9, 160-pounds with a thick athletic frame. Ran a 6.72 – 60, slightly higher than his previous best of 6.69 recorded in October 2016. Offensively- Righty sets up with a slightly closed stance with his feet just outside shoulder with. Shows slight knee bend with an upright torso closed off to the pitcher. Body is quiet pre-pitch while here is little bat movement prior to delivery. On pitch his trigger is a quiet and efficient step forward while his hands move back and down slightly to get into his hitting position. Shows quick hands into the hitting zone with good aggressive upward lift bath path throughout into a high two handed finish. Good lower body rotation getting whole frame into swing yet while maintaining balance. Swing is very smooth and fluid displayed by consistent line dives and gap to gap shots up the middle and pull side. Recorded an exit velocity of 78 MPH, 7 MPH shy of his best recorded velocity of 85 MPH. Defensively- Good athletic footwork getting to the baseball. Needs to gain more ground on this crow hop towards his target, feet get close together and he loses a lot of force in the throw. Arm action could be longer and on top for an outfielder to gain velocity and distance on throws into the infield. Does make up for this with his foot speed and ability to track balls down. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 78 MPH, 3 MPH shy of his previous best of 81 MPH.
Last Chance Preview (October 30, 2016)

Bristow, an impressive 2019 right-handed hitting outfielder who quickly became a high follow, stands at 5-foot-9 and weighs 160 pounds, ran an impressive
6.69 60. Offensively- Starts with a crouched base with knees turned inward toward each other and a front foot pigeon toe while the hands are in front of the back shoulder with the nearly straight up and down. Uses a shift of weight to the back side while a moderate stride is created with a slight load of the hands straight back. Showed an impressive approach at the plate driving the ball where it was pitched during BP. Drove the ball with authority to both gaps, which would result in extra base hits with the speed he possesses. Hands are quick and compact through the zone, while getting plus extension finishing high and over the lead shoulder with a two hand finish. Recorded an exit velocity of 85 MPH on the day. Defensively-  Athletic and fluid movements to the ball. On the ground fielded the ball to the glove side creating positive momentum. Throws showed good accuracy and carry with an arm velocity of 81 MPH. An adjustment to the front side, keeping the lead arm tighter from the transfer to release would create better extension on the throws, which would create more velocity and carry on the throws. Impressive tools and should be fun to watch develop over the next few years.
