Preseason All-State (February 20, 2017)

Winslow, a 2020 right-handed hitting catcher, stands at 5-foot-10 and weighs 140 pounds, ran a 7.80 60. Offensively- Starts with square lower half, some shift of weight to the back leg, with the hands above and in front of the back shoulder while the barrel of the bat is nearly perpendicular to the ground. Gets to the launch phase of the swing by elevating the lead foot, slight inward rotation of the knee, while the foot drives a moderate distance towards the pitcher while the hands are loaded slightly outside the back shoulder with the barrel of the bat getting 45-degrees to the ground. Hands stayed back and connected to the lower half during batting practice, showing a quick and compact hand path to the ball. Drove the ball well from the pull side line to the pull gap, getting quality hip rotation and drive from the back side. Recorded an exit velocity of 81 MPH, impressive for a 2020 grad at this point.  Defensively-   Worked from a square balanced lower half with the glove in front of the left knee and low in the zone. On throws to second base, transfers the ball quickly, from the center of the body, however will over rotate the shoulders when getting into the power position. The lead side gets away and moves horizontally from the power to release phase of the throw, causing the throwing arm to cast away. Throws showed good accuracy and will surely improve,  the arm velocity of 70 MPH as well as the top pop time of 2.15, as minor adjustments are made to create more extension on throws.
