Notes

Comments

6/28/21

Physical: Strong, durable 5-foot-11, 195lb frame with thick, even proportions. 7.60 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Upright, narrow, and wide open stance as the hands showed flat and idle on the shoulder to start; utilized a deep barrel tilt timed up with an early toe tap and stride out towards the pitcher, initiating the swing through a fluid, slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Produced lots of bat-speed particularly when pitched out over the middle of the plate, letting efficient turns generate loud results hitting into a stiff front-side. Notched a T93 mph bat-exit velocity (via Trackman) with a lofty approach leading the way (70% fly ball rate) yielding tons of hard, deep contact to the LCF gap. Worked up to a 361 foot batted ball distance with current home run juice down the LF line (middle of the order consideration). 

Defensively: The primary backstop demonstrated a compact, traditional setup in the crouch, with the glove hand moving subtly on the corners, receiving softly. Pop times ranged from 2.03-2.10 with good, replaceable feet getting the shoulders in-line to the target; a quick arm played through a ¾ slot with some arm-side run on the carry (73 mph arm, accurate). Showed solid reads out of the hand on blocks, reading down angle with soft shields over the plate.


2/17/21

Physical: Large, XL 5-foot-11, 195-pound frame with a high waist and power in the lower half. 7.68 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Upright, narrow and open stance with an idle hand position on the shoulder to start, utilized a toe tap stride coupled with a drop in the hands to a low spot with wiggle for launch, the bat head whipped through a slightly uphill path creating a dead-pull side approach during batting practice. Fluid, aggressive turns at the plate allowing for a 56% fly ball rate (loft) as well as a 336 foot peak batted ball distance. Strong top hand at impact and liked to get leveraged on pitches out over the plate; an 11% hard hit rate shows some of the consistency he possesses / recorded a bat-exit velocity of 92 mph.

Defensively: The primary backstop featured a low target from a traditional setup mixing in one-knee on occasion, advanced pocket awareness with feel at the catch point. Pop times ranged from 2.03-2.07 using above-average low posture during the catch / throw phase in order to create power and quickness. Got in line well and used momentum of the pitch to flow through transfers; accurate 75 mph arm strength on the bag. Solid blocking technique from a one-knee approach, deadened the baseball with calculated movements.


2/19/20

Physical: 5-foot-11, 195-pounds. Tall, physical frame; 4.93 home-to-1B.
Offensively: RHH. Open stance, toe drag and slide as load up, long load action with his hands, tight hands through the zone  Flat barrel path that works uphill through finish, head stays down on the ball, hands quick through the zone, long one handed finish. Power pull-side. 82 MPH raw exit velocity.
Defensively: 2.06-2.16 pop times. Sees ball into the glove, large target, low balanced stance, gains ground on throws, accurate throws around the bag. Long arm swing, mid 3/4 arm slot. C - 73 MPH. 

9/22/19

Offensively- the right handed hitter stands in the box in a tall open stance. Takes a short stride towards the pitcher before attacking the hitting zone. Quick direct path to the baseball. Displayed hard consistent contact during the batting practice portion. Defensively- the catcher displayed active footwork. He will hop up slightly when exchanging the baseball. Quick release from a ¾ arm slot. Improved pop time range to 2.00-2.10.


2/21/19

Physical build- 5-foot-9 180 pounds. Offensively- Stands in the box. Tall stance. Slightly open. Bat rests on his shoulder. Rocks the front leg back then forward towards the pitcher for timing. Hands drop slightly before attacking the hitting zone. Slight lift before the point of contact. Good use of lower half. Clears his hips. Gets full extension after contact. Stays balanced throughout his swing. Top exit velocity 84 MPH. Defensively- Sits back. Low wide base. Displays a big target. Has a smooth transition to an above average release. Front side flies slightly open on throws to second base. The top throwing velocity on throws to second base was 70 MPH pop time ranged from 2.16-2.19. Pitching- Displayed a short arm action. Works with tempo. Has a mid-knee lift. Drives downhill. Could use more leg drive. Showed good command of Fastball which peaked at 72 MPH. Curveball has a late break. Ranged from 56-59 MPH.
