6/28/21

Physical: Strong, athletic 6-foot-1, 180lb frame with durability carried in the actions and feel for the game. 7.06 runner in the 60-yard dash and Niagara County CC commit. 

Offensively: RHH - Bent, crouched stance as the hands operated high by the head to start. Utilized a leg lift stride to initiate a loud, flat path into the hitting zone, lifting after impact. Produced an easy 46% line drive / 36% fly ball rate split with ability to keep the ball off the ground and backspinning to the middle of the field. Notched a T92 mph bat-exit velocity (via Trackman) with extra-base hit juice up to near 340 foot batted ball distance during his BP round. Middle of the order presence with a mature approach and connected movements in the box. Doesn’t get cheated, attacking FB’s and ambushing in advantage counts in a middle of the order type skillset.

 Defensively: The primary third baseman showcased a hop in the “prep step” getting to a bent, low-postured position at the fielding window. Choppy feet before fielding, working right-left and presenting the glove accurately out in front, on-time. Held pace and momentum to the target, releasing from a fluid, H ¾ slot across the diamond (82 mph arm strength, above-average defender qualities). Day-one starter potential at the next level.

2/15/21

Physical: Strong, athletic 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame with obvious feel for his body in all phases of the game. 7.16 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - The righty started from a bent, balanced stance with the hands starting at a low position at a 45 degree angle. Utilized a leg lift stride while staying well-connected over the backside, as the barrel turned through a slight uphill attack into the hitting zone. Showcased some loft present in the swing evidenced by a 46% fly ball rate; peppered the LCF gap en route to a 91 mph peak bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. A 73% on-plane efficiency suggests the bat to ball skills play at an above-average level, which means a 23.4 mph hand speed should turn around high velocity at a good rate. 

Defensively: The primary third baseman featured advanced feel for the feet with gliding actions at the hot corner. Ranged well in either direction, staying low to the ground with supreme confidence in the glove hand. Beat the ball to the spot with down chest angles; accurate 79 mph arm strength across with room for more.
