Showed hard consistent contact to the pull side and middle part of the field. Stays balanced throughout his swing. Top exit velocity 82 MPH. Defensively- Shows an aggressive approach to the baseball.  Shows above average funnel action. Takes time to gather himself to make throws across the diamond from a high ¾ slot. Top throwing velocity 79 MPH. Pitching- Displayed a projectable easy free arm. Works with a quick tempo. Uses a high knee lift and drives downhill from a balanced backside. FB has some arm side run and peaked at 80 MPH. CB has a tight late spin and ranged from 66-68 MPH. Shows feel for a CH ranged from 68-71 MPH. The 2020 graduate is an all-around athlete and is a must follow going forward.

Campus Series - Marist (July 17, 2018)

6-foot-1, 180-pounds. Lean frame with projection left. Offensively - Narrow, upright stance squared up to the pitcher. Low forward stride and a subtle hand load to create separation. Stays within his legs and rotates hips completely thru contact. Swing shows lift to his pull-side. Hands stay inside of the ball. Exit velocity was 81 MPH. Defensively - Big target at 1B. High ¾ release on throws. Handles footwork around the bag with no issues. Fields ball in center of body and funnels it into his throws quickly. Arm strength was 73 MPH. Pitching - Simple, mechanically sound delivery with a high leg kick. High ¾ release point. Full arm swing after hand break. Works towards target but consistently falls off to 3B side. Long legs create leverage and tough downward angle on all of his offerings. FB sat 78 -79 MPH and topped at 80. Keeps ball down with minimal effort. CB has 2/7 break at 66-68 MPH. CH has late sinking action at 68-71 MPH. Overall, quality 3-pitch mix.
