2/20/22

Physical: Athletic, high-waisted 6-foot-2, 185lb frame. 6.85 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Wider, rhythmic stance with pre-pitch movement evident. Deeper hand-set at the shoulder and utilized a quick toe-tap stride to initiate the swing through a flat path into the hitting zone. Some upper half lay back available to create extra space for the barrel, recording a lofty approach through the middle of the field (47% fly ball rate). Finished with two-hands on the backside and worked up to a T98 mph bat-exit velocity at 367 feet on his best barrel. Drove the ball to the pull-side a couple times for distance, owned the inner half. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder demonstrated tools across the board, flashing an 89 mph arm-strength from his position. Rounded on the ball with a downhill component at the touch, fielding softly off of his left side. Got the shoulders in-line after a directional shuffle and released from a H ¾ slot with a mostly full arm-circle.

6/30/21

Physical: The UAlbany commit stands an uber-athletic, projectable 6-foot-2, 185lbs. 6.90 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, crouched stance at shoulder-width with rhythm pre-swing; utilized a stretched lift and replace stride, holding the rear hip on slightly uphill turns into the hitting zone. Created consistent loft in the approach, driving the ball with intent to the pull-side gap for extra-bases. Produced leverage in the swing, staying short and direct and finding extension through the front of the plate (T94 mph bat-exit velocity via Trackman). Worked up to a 335 foot batted ball distance with easy middle of the order considerations, flashing early connection with good bat to ball skills (bat-speed present). 

Defensively: The outfielder popped during defense, flashing above-average feel in space and a rounded, downhill approach over the toes. Bent at the waist, using a shifty, lower posture with efficient routes. Fielded cleanly off his left and released with length from an accurate, H ¾ slot (91 mph arm, can handle any of three OF positions).


2/18/21

Physical: Strong, projectable 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame with good proportions. 7.07 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. The righty began from a slightly open, balanced stance with the hands starting at the shoulder with minor rhythm. Utilized a knee knock stride in order to initiate the bat head through a flat path into the hitting zone paired with a sudden torso turn through impact, recorded a 90 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball throughout a pull-side approach. Hit into a stiff front side, giving way to a 17% line drive rate. Was just on top of the ball on this date; impressive bat speed reaching up to as high as 81 mph according to Blast Motion, room to pack a punch offensively. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder flashed easy athleticism during defensive evaluations, top outfield round with consistent timing at the fielding window while getting downhill with the chest, created momentum before fielding and kept the feet moving generating noticeable carry on strong 89 mph throws. Ability to slot into any of the three outfield positions with flexibility present. Quality prospect overall in the ‘22 class who will continue to garner attention as he adds refinement.


9/11/20

Physical: 6-foot-1, 170 pounds; long legged, lean frame. 7.06 runner in the 60.
Offensively: RHH. Slightly open front side with feet just outside shoulder width, keeps the bat up around the ear; uses a leg kick to shift the weight back, bars out his front arm. Rotates his hips well, occasionally collapses on the back leg with long swing, likes to get around the ball on contact. Hit the ball up in the air frequently, mixed in some line drives to the left side of the field; peak Trackman exit velocity of 91 MPH.
Defensively: Tall, rigid stance with narrow feet and some weight shifted forward; Moves well to the ball and works through it. Fields out in front on his glove side foot and works into a smooth transfer; long, swinging arm action from an over the top slot with a lot of shoulder tilt. OF - 84 MPH. 

7/22/20

Physical: Well put together, 6-foot-1, 170-pound frame with high level athleticism found throughout the movements. 7.17 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Balanced, open stance with the hands starting deep and high above the shoulder. Utilized a quick toe-tap stride to initiate a slightly uphill barrel path with lift after contact into the hitting zone. Generated some weight shift into a stiff front side while contacting the baseball at the front of the plate, let the ball get deep sometimes when the front foot got down late from the toe-tap, but shored up timing issues in game action. When on time, created plenty of hand speed through contact allowing for a quick and whippy bat to impact the ball with authority. Showcased natural backspin on balls hit to the pull-side with home run juice when pitched out over the plate. Recorded a top of 92 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder featured advanced footwork beating the ball to the spot and getting downhill through the fielding window. A soft glove hand fielded the ball with momentum off of the left foot with quality catch and throw skills out of a fluid, high ¾ slot with arm speed present. Could range to either side in the gap to track down balls in the air, solid defender. Should be able to handle at least 2, maybe 3 outfield positions at the next level. OF - 88 mph 

Pitching: RHP - Side rocker, comfortable pace throughout the delivery, moderate leg lift with ability to get directional towards the plate, quick arm out of a high ¾ slot with good extension on the front side. The FB played from 79-81 mph with an upwards of 1923 spin according to Trackman Baseball. Dropped in a 65-68 mph CB with feel for spin and 11/5 shape across the zone out of the same window. Countered with a 69-71 mph CH with deception and extremely low spin (average of 748) creating swing and miss opportunities on the bump.

10/14/19
