Physical: 5-foot-8, 180LBS. Stocky build with athleticism in the movements. LHP/OF. 7.7SEC 60-yard dash. Elon Commit.

Offensively: LHH. Sets up with feet shoulder width apart and hands next to ear. Hands work into bow & arrow load while the lead leg hangs as the timing mechanism. Handsy swing with solid bat speed. Maintained balance well throughout the swing.

Defensively: In the OF showcased a live, efficient arm that translates well to the mound. Utilized the lower half well, transferring energy up through the kinetic chain and out the arm. Top end 91MPH with good carry.

Pitching: Begins on the 3B side of the rubber. Methodical rocker step into a high leg lift. Weight is transferred to the rear leg during leg lift while utilizing a drift towards the plate. Glove begins up in front of chin, drops to belt line, then rises again throughout the windup. Arm action is clean. On glove break arm works down and back, creating a clean elbow spiral. FB sat 84-85MPH.

Physical: Compact and explosive 5-foot-8, 170-pound frame with plenty of athleticism in the movements. Elon Commit.

Pitching: LHP - Worked up tempo with a bulldog mentality on the mound. Pounded the zone with feel for quality straight line drive with the hip towards the plate and a quick, high ¾ arm-slot on the front side with occasional cut on an 83-85 T86 mph FB. Had no issues commanding the fastball right away in game action and then dropping in a tight 73-75 mph CB with late 1/7 shape and swing and miss capabilities. Recorded a 50% strikeout rate among batters faced in game action at the NY State Games (12 batters / 6 strikeouts) giving you a look at how effective the two pitches can be. Countered with a solid third offering; a 75-76 mph CH at near fastball arm speed.

7/31/19

Compact frame that has explosive actions. 60 time hovers in the 7.4-7.5 range but in game movements and reads in the outfield are above average. Offensively- Feet start underneath his shoulders; uses a toe-tap and slight lift of the bat for timing. Line drive approach from foul line to foul line. Several hard hit balls during games; has the ability to be a table setter, high average/contact type but still drive the ball. Defensively- Plenty of arm at 88 MPH (was 90 at NYS Games); played all 3 positions well over the week covering all kinds of ground with proper/efficient routes. Also took to the mound where he uses an uptempo delivery and worked in the 81-84 MPH range. 

6/25/19
An athletic 5-foot-7, 175 pounds. Ran a 7.66 in the 60 yard dash. Offensively- The left handed hitter stands in the box in a tall stance. Weight on the back side. Shifts his weight and moves his hands toward the hitting zone in sync. Displayed hard consistent contact during BP. Has a flat bat path. A lot more left in the tank. Top exit velocity was 86 MPH. Defensively- The outfielder displays active footwork. Gets himself in a good position when fielding the baseball. Takes his time to gather himself to make his throws. Throws from a high ¾ arm slot. Top throwing velocity was 90 MPH.
2/15/19

Stands 5-foot-7, 175-pounds from a strong, thick lower half. At the plate, he's slightly open on his setup, loose hands, strides back to even on the pitch, hands explode to the ball on a short path, barrel is fluid and slightly uphill with above average bat-speed (88). Defensively, he's very active to the ball, keeps lower half moving through his target, throws from a high 3/4 slot with no restrictions, carry on the ball, above average arm-strength (87). Pitching, works with a quick tempo, high leg lift, drives off his back leg down the powerline, uses a three pitch mix, fastball peaked 82 mph with clear signs of more in the tank, curveball was 69-71 with 1/7 shape, changeup was 76-77 on one plane. 2021 to keep eyes on.

6/15/18

Well built athletic frame with broad shoulders, stands 5-foot-6. From the windup, gets full extension to the plate with tilt. Has a high leg kick towards first base, uses lower half well. FB sat 78-81 topping out at 82 MPH. Fastball have above average movement away from RHH. CB was 64-68 MPH with tight sweeping movement that breaks late in the zone. Had a good day at the plate reaching base 3 times with 2 walks and a double in the RC gap.
