Notes

Comments

6/30/21

Physical: Strong, durable 6-foot-1, 190lb frame with thickness in the lower half. 7.70 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Slightly narrow, open stance as the knees showed bent to start; utilized a controlled toe-tap stride at the top of the load, initiating through a slightly uphill, on time path into the hitting zone. Demonstrated some weight shift at the front of the plate, working into a stiff lead-leg with high intent producing a 50% line drive rate via Trackman. Natural home-run juice to the pull-side, sequencing properly and driving the ball with extension up to a near 370 foot batted ball distance at his peak. True middle of the order intangibles with easy connection and violent hip turns in the lower half assisting big-time measurables. 

Defensively: The third baseman stayed over the toes with momentum, getting to advantage positions at the fielding window with a soft glove hand presented. Bent at the waist, funneling properly and releasing in rhythm from a H ¾ slot, right-left/right-left to the target (78 mph arm).

Pitching: RHP - Started tall off the middle/left side of the rubber. Momentum gaining type pace and average stride length, working downhill over the front side from a tall landing position at H ¾ slot. The FB held the zone at a 50% clip from 81-83 mph at T2230rpms (success to bottom of the zone) landing a 71-74 mph split CH that played with deception and depth on its way to the plate.


3/20/21

Franco has a strong and broad-shouldered frame at 6-foot-1, 200-pounds. Ran the 60 yard dash in 7.63 seconds and recorded an exit velo of 94 MPH. Starts at the plate with this feet even and close. Hands are cocked back behind his body with elbow parallel to the ground. Occasional toe tap in his load. Hands quietly move down and back. Strong and aggressive lower half. Present barrel awareness. Gap-to-gap power with plenty of hard contact. In the infield, recorded a top velo of 81 MPH on his throws. Fields out in front with a transfer in his midsection. Utilizes a glove tap and shuffle when making throws. High arm slot. 

7/22/20

Physical: Well put together, sturdy 5-foot-11, 190-pound frame with strength found throughout the movements. 7.83 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Balanced, even stance with high hands showing minor rhythm swaying at the ear in the setup. Utilized a repeatable lift and replace stride to initiate a flat barrel path into the hitting zone with weight shift at impact. Hit into a stiff front side with intent at the front of the plate with the hands, showcased ability to use the pull-side with regularity and was consistently on time to fastballs in game action. Physical frame allowed for plenty of hand speed towards impact; recorded a top bat-exit velocity of 92 mph during batting practice according to Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The primary middle infielder demonstrated quality feel for the approach, arriving on time with ability to make steps choppy for rhythm. Fielded the ball off of the front of his left side getting downhill momentum towards the target. Soft glove hand created push through the ball and give when need be. Arm played accurately through a high ¾ slot with a short and quick arm circle. INF - 77 mph …. The outfielder featured lengthy actions with ability to get around the ball hit to his arm side in the gap. Feel for first step quickness, played with a moderately high center of gravity in space. OF - 77 mph
