Notes

Comments

7/22/20

Physical: Lean and athletic 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame with advanced feel for his body; still has room to continue filling out the frame and adding strength with present projectability. Le Moyne College commit.

Pitching: RHP - Worked mainly from the stretch as the front side is slightly open at the set position, controlled leg lift at medium height, got directional towards the plate and the body got over the front side well allowing for extension on the release, the arm worked through a quick, high ¾ slot with moderate length in the arm swing. The FB ranged from 83-84 mph with a max of 2200 spin according to Trackman Baseball, mixed in a tight/two-plane 11/5 CB at 71-73 mph (2500+ spin) showcasing swing and miss ability. Countered with a harder and more horizontal 73-76 mph SL for a different look and dropped in a 73-75 mph CH with slight arm-side fade.

7/06/20

Physical: Long and projectable, 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame with plenty of athleticism throughout the movements. 7.29 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Balanced stance with a slight bend at the knees, utilized a medium leg kick for the timing mechanism which launched a slightly uphill barrel path through impact allowing for long levers to work at the front of the plate. When on time to the inner half pitch, created natural lift to the pull-side gap and lived mostly to the middle of the field during batting practice. The hands got to extension well doing damage when they were released on time to the baseball. Recorded a max of 89 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball and a top distance of 315 feet (210 average). 

Defensively: The primary outfielder beat the ball to the spot with active footwork and natural instincts at his position. Rounded the ball off well in the gaps and got downhill through the fielding window with regularity. The arm played with accuracy towards the target out of a high ¾ slot with length in the takeaway. OF - 86 mph

Pitching: RHP - Works primarily out of the stretch while staying tall in the delivery, getting plenty of whip and arm speed on the release through a long, high ¾ slot. Fastball sat 83-85 T86 mph with a max of 2218 spin per Trackman Baseball. Mixed in a 70-72 mph curveball with wipeout 2500+ spin and two plane, 11/5 shape which should project as an out pitch moving forward. Countered with a solid 74-76 mph slider thrown harder with more horizontal bite across the zone. A 74-76 mph CH with lower spin appeared to be a quality fourth offering with the command still improving.

2/17/20

Physical: 6-foot-2, 178-pounds. Long, lean, athletic build.
Run: 7.65 runner in the 60.
Hit: RHH. Balanced stance with slightly bent knees, even base, medium leg kick for timing Flat, direct barrel path, bat stays flat to and through the point of contact, hands clear the zone quickly, good extension.
Power: 84 MPH raw exit velocity. Pull side power potential.
Defense: Starts and stays low on approach, slow, controlled footwork attacking the ball, fields the ball slightly outside his glove foot.
Arm: Short arm swing; over the top slot, easy carry.  OF - 81 MPH.

Pitching Delivery: Primarily stretch, stays tall and works in line accelerating through a strong, balanced follow through.
Arm Action: Glove tap for rhythm, short arm action staying connected to a high 3/4 slot.
FB: T84, 80-83 MPH. Commands in the zone with downhill plane with some tail.
CB: 66-69 MPH. 12-6 action with big break.
SL: 70-73 MPH. tight break with 11-5 shape.
CH: 77-78 MPH. Firm straight change.

9/22/19

Offensively- the right handed hitter stands in the box in a tall stance and slightly open. Short simple load actions. Bowler displayed his quick hands through the zone during the batting practice portion. Defensively- the outfielder has an aggressive approach to the baseball. Stays under control. Smooth exchange to a quick release from a high 3/4 arm slot. Bowler has a projectable frame and is a must follow. 

8/07/19

Bowler stands 6-foot-1, 165-pounds with a frame ready to hold more weight. In the box, shoulder width stance, loose hands, mostly level barrel plane through contact, short and direct to the ball. In the OF, active to the ball, fields to his glove side, throws from an over-the-top-slot, carry to home-plate. Pitching - Crouched setup, tucks his front leg as he gets ready to drive towards home, average pace, high over-the-top release point creating some depth on his FB. 12/6 shape to his breaking offerings.
