7/10/19

Displayed a long and lean 5-foot-7, 140-pound frame with room to add strength. The right-handed hitter begins with a balanced, even stance utilizing a lift-and-replace stride to initiate his swing. Demonstrated a strong lower half with a barrel that whips through the zone. Showcased feel for a slightly uphill barrel path working gap to gap on 83 mph bat-exit velocities. Featured adequate footwork with range to both sides while playing with a low center of gravity. Arrived on time with momentum that carried accurate 77 mph throws across the infield. The right-handed pitcher sat 71-74 mph out of a fluid, over-the-top arm-slot with command. Countered with a 61-63 mph curveball yielding 11/5 rotation with some depth.
