6/28/21

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 165lb frame with projection left. 7.52 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Wide, slightly bent, and open stance with rhythm in the hands at the shoulder. Utilized a barrel tip on time with a lift and replace stride to initiate the bat head through a whippy, slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Worked towards a high finish allowing for a near 30% fly ball rate (via Trackman) and added a T86 mph bat-exit velocity at his peak. Feel for the top hand, able to deliver directly towards the baseball; notched a 315 foot batted ball distance suggesting doubles power available when striking the ball at the front of the plate. Featured a primary middle of the field, RCF approach and saw consistent connection in the swing. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop demonstrated smooth footwork, using rhythm on-time in the feet, right-to-left as the ball arrived. Fielded out in front softly, funneling inward and released from a strong, H ¾ slot with some length on the takeaway (pace, 80 mph arm, glove tap). Showcased the ability to handle plays on the run while throwing across his body accurately.

Physical: Long, athletic frame. 7.89 runner in the 60.

Offensively: LHH. Balanced stance with feet even and hands up in front of back shoulder; low leg lift as gets down into his legs while hands load down and back. aggressive lower half into a stiff front leg with direct to the ball with an attack angle of 10 degrees and a on plane efficiency of 68%.  Solid contact through the middle and left center gap; peak Trackman exit velocity of 86 MPH.

Defensively: Uses prep step; athletic footwork playing through the ball routinely. soft glove with a clean transfer; ability to throw from multiple arm angles and make the throw on the run.  INF - 82 MPH. 

9/21/19

Offensively- the left handed hitter stands in the box in a tall stance. Quiet simple load actions. Displayed a short compact swing during the batting practice portion at the Top Prospect Games. Displayed hard consistent contact. Stays balanced throughout the swing. Defensively- the infielder displayed active footwork. Moves well laterally and low effort actions once he fields the baseball. Displayed a live accurate arm. Mahar has good actions and will be a must follow as he continues to develop.

2/21/19

Good use of his lower half. Has a balanced finish. Top exit velocity 74 MPH. Defensively- As a third baseman. Soft hands and active feet. Above average exchange to a quick three-quarter arm angle. Moves well. Top throwing velocity 73 MPH. The 2022 graduate is a must follow.

5-foot-7, 140-pounds with a developing frame. Offensively - Narrow, left handed stance with rhythm in the hands. Forward stride into a wide, athletic stance. Hands stay inside of the ball and get the barrel on plane with the pitch early. Smooth, compact swing with a high finish. Exit Velocity was 66 MPH. Defensively - Worked out at both 3B and SS. Actions profile to either infield position. Light on feet with body control and quickness. Hands stay in rhythm with lower half while fielding/throwing. Arm action is loose and works from multiple slots. Plays low to the ground with soft glove hand. Arm strength was 64 MPH. Advanced hitting and fielding actions for a young player.

2/22/18

5 feet 4 inches, 140-pounds with room to grow. Mahar is a 3B/2B in the graduating class of 2022. Ran a 5.14 home to first. Offensively- left handed hitter that stands slightly open in the box. Heavy bat wiggle pre pitch. Has a short stride to the ball. Hands are slow to the hitting zone. Barrel dips through the zone making him lift up on the swing. Finishes his swing with one hand. Exit Velo-67 MPH. Defensively- Has an athletic stance to start out with short choppy steps getting him around the ball. Mahar fields the ball deep into his stance. The transfer is clean, could use some work getting the ball from glove to hand more quickly. Throws from a ¾ arm slot, arm drags behind the body. Infield velo- 65 MPH.
