PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase (October 28, 2018)

6-foot-4, 215-pound two-way prospect is a Texas Tech commit. The left-handed hitter starts from a square stance and utilizes a short, lift-and-replace stride to initiate his swing. Fundamentally sound swing allows him to routinely stay inside the baseball. Consistently made loud contact during two solid rounds of batting practice registering an 86 mph bat exit velocity while swinging wood. Quiet receiver behind the plate showcased above average carry on throws of 81 mph from the crouch. Registered pop times of 1.95-2.03 with a longer arm stroke that could be shortened up for even quicker times. The primary catcher also sat 89-90 during his bullpen session later in the day.

PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase (October 28, 2018)

6-foot-4, 215-pound two-way prospect is a Texas Tech commit. The primary catcher impressed on the mound sitting 89-90 out of an athletic, balanced high 3/4 arm slot delivery. His curveball displayed tight 11/5 rotation with occasional two-plane action at 66-69. Scanlon's changeup is a quality third offering thrown at fastball arm speed with some cut action at 75-78. Scanlon's two-way ability should draw a number of scouts to see him in action this spring with many paying close attention to his progress on the mound.

Call to the Hall (July 24, 2018)

Physical, full frame at 6-foot-4 215 pounds. The RHP/C/1B ran an improved 8.18 60. At the plate there is an even setup with limited pre-pitch activity; when on time he can create tremendous lift to his pull side (connected on a HR at Doubleday Field with wood). Exit velocity was 92 MPH. Defensively Scanlon has show an above average arm behind the plate with a peak throwing velocity of 81 MPH; arm action is short draw back but can lose some time with exchange and footwork. Pop times ranged between 2.01-2.12. Moves well around the bag at 1B; handles the glove well with plenty of arm to start the front end of a doubleplay. May project better at 1B overtime due to build and offensive potential. On the mound Scanlon is more then effective running his FB up to 87 MPH (sitting 86-87). Mixes a 11-to-5 CB at 65-66; arm speed could improve here as we've seen a better differential in the past at 68-70 MPH. Worked in a change at 74-75 MPH.

Future Games (August 1-3, 2017)

Monster frame at 6-foot-4 215 pounds who also displays left-handed power as a C/1B. He ran an 8.47 60. Offensively- The LHH sets up with an even stance, feet just outside his shoulders. Flat barrel angle to start before lifting during timing phase. Stays behind the ball, aggressive lower half and is able to stay inside contact showing some pull side power with a mix on line drives. Exit velocity peaked at 94 MPH. Run producer who will develop power to all fields. Pitching- Works in the mid 80's, having topped out at 87 MPH with late life at the Future Games. Lifts hands over the head during drop step; compact out of the balance point with a repeatable delivery. Able to adjust away from the catcher's arm action staying long and working through a 3/4 slot. Breaking ball action varies between 11-to-5 and a more slurve like 10-to-4 but spin is there. Same plane change up at 74-76 MPH. Throws strikes. Durable frame to project as a starter but certain programs may take the two-way route as a 1B/RHP who can provide valuable innings out of the pen.

NY Games (June 25-27, 2017)

Dynamic 6-foot-4, 215-pound RHP. Pitching - uses height to get downward plane on 83-85 MPH fastball that touches 86 MPH, explodes at the plate with late arm-side run, keeps tight 12-to-6 curveball down in the zone at 65-67 MPH, maintains release point and motion on change-up at 74-76 MPH. Offensively - fluid swing, gets full extension after contact with an exit velocity at 87 MPH, repeatable motion, effortless, evident lower body engagement, power numbers should grow with maturity. Defensively - fundamentally sound, stays low throughout the receiving process, accurate arm with velocity at 79 MPH and POP time of 1.96-2.02.

October 24, 2015

 At 6-foot-2, 175 pounds the LHH screams projectable power with and easy stroke and frame that will add additional mass. Some work to be done behind the plate with pop times that ranged in the 2.22-2.28 range. Up to 77 MPH on the mound. Tremendous upside.
