NY Games (June 25-27, 2017)
Athletic 6-foot-4, 210-pound right-hander, ran a 7.2/60. Pitching - uses height to get downward plane on fastball at 82-84 MPH, clean arm action, evidence of hip tilt at balance point used to generate momentum, maintains release point and arm motion with change-up at 74-75 MPH. Offensively - effective load with appropriate pre-pitch movement, keeps bat on level path through, full extension with slight upper cut after contact creates exit velocity of 90 MPH, inner knee rotation triggers hips, further lower body engagement with counter rotation between upper and lower half will reap positive results.

Lodes stands in at 6-foot-4, 210-pounds with a tall and thick athletic frame. Ran a 7.31 – 60. Offensively- Righty sets up in a slightly open stance with his feet shoulder width apart. Stands tall with a full upright position holding his hands above the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch his trigger is a toe tap forward while his hands move back into a good hitting position. Utilizes good lower body rotation getting the whole body involved in the swing clearing the hips to get the bat head through. Has quick hands into the hitting zone with good upward lift bat action throughout into a high one handed finish. Demonstrated good plate coverage with line drive ability to all field during batting practice round recording an exit velocity of 90 MPH. Defensively- Athletic footwork to the baseball and off the bag at first base. Shows fluid fielding mechanics with an efficient funnel into chest and quick transition to the throwing hand. Is under control and quick fielding the ball and turning to throw to second on double plays. Has an efficient infielder arm swing. Overall very fluid fielding and throwing the ball at first base. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 83 MPH. Pitching- Starts on the right side of the rubber with a simple step to the side and a knee raise into his power position above hip crease. Breaks down well on the back side striding out staying closed. Has loose arm action with a high ¾ delivery into an efficient follow through. Repeats mechanics on different pitches and hides the ball very well. Fastball shows arm side run and was recorded at 82-83 MPH. Change up runs down and arm side and was recorded at 75-76 MPH. Splitter has late sink and can spot for a strike, which was recorded at 74-75 MPH. High follow with dual position capabilities.
May 2016
At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, the sophomore has the potential to develop into a sought-after Division I prospect. He’s already throwing low-to-mid 80s with a fluid delivery that he repeats easily, and he’s been racking up double-digit strikeouts in virtually every game this season. His frame is very projectable, and he may not be done growing. An increase in velocity can be expected in the next two years, and if he continues to improve his secondary pitches, he should become of the best pitchers in Section 1. He also flashes a good bat, hitting fifth for White Plains this season with gap-to-gap power.
