Noriega is a 5-foot-7 175 pound athletically build left handed first baseman. Ran a 7.17 60, (Down 0.60 seconds from 10/15/17) Offensively- Starts slightly further than shoulder width apart, front foot open. Strong, quick hands that displays good bat speed. Uses whole field with a line drive approach. Exit velocity of 91 MPH (Up 3 MPH from 10/15/17) extends well through the ball, high one handed finish. Good use of lower half, very explosive upon contact. Defensively- Gets off the bag aggressively. Gets to the ball and soft hands allow for a quick transition. Above average arm for age/position at 77 MPH; throws with intent across the diamond. Foot-speed has improved and could allow for OF opportunities if need be.

Big Apple Preview (October 15, 2017)

Noriega stands in at 5-foot-7, 175-pounds with a thick athletic frame. Ran a 7.67 – 60. Offensively- Lefty sets up in an open stance with his feet just outside shoulder width. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso holding his hands in front of the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch, his trigger is a knee raise to stride forward squaring up to the pitcher while his hands move back slightly into his hitting position. Shows quick hands to the zone with a level barrel path throughout into a high one-handed finish. Has good lower body rotation getting whole frame involved in swing. Demonstrated ability to hit line drives up the middle and pull slide during batting practice round. Clean, fluid swing with potential. Recorded an exit velocity of 88 MPH. Defensively- In the outfield shows a good approach to the baseball. Crow hop mechanics could be quicker while gaining more ground prior to the throw. Gets behind the ball well prior to making the catch but could also use a longer outfielder arm swing. Recorded a positional arm velocity in the outfield of 83 MPH. In the infield, good approach and footwork getting to the baseball. Funnels the ball well into the chest with a quick transition to the throwing hand. Moves off the bag at first well and gets into a good fielding position. Moves well left/right and effectively can field a double play off first. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 71 MPH. Overall a talented 2020 grad to keep an eye on.
