Notes

Comments

6/27/22

Physical: 6-foot-1, 183 pounds; Average, proportional build. 7.71 runner in the 60.

Offensively: LHH. Even setup, with feet wide spread; flat bat to start. Loads straight back with a slight leg-kick for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing a strong lower half. Showed a sweeping swing path. with a two handed finish.  More line drives than flyballs and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 93 MPH via Trackman.

Defensively: Starts with an upright /tall setup; walks into ready position while showing active feet. Hands are out in front with a clean transfer. Short take back from a standard 3/4 arm slot. 2.22-2.37 pop times. C - 75 MPH. INF - 80 MPH. As a catcher, sets up with one knee down. Stays low through receiving of the baseball and transfer on throw downs. Delivers the ball with a short arm path and a high 3/4 arm slot.

Pitching: LHP. Uses a center rubber setup while using a side step. Belt high leg drive with shoulders outside the hips. Has a moderate stride landing inline with the plate. Moderate arm swing while showing some scap load; standard 3/4 slot. Upright with finish. FB: Peak velo of 82 MPH, while sitting 79-82  MPH; arm side run. CB: 69-71  MPH; slurve like action. CH: 73-76 MPH; fading action. 

2/21/22

Physical: 6-foot-1, 180 pounds; Broad shouldered, proportional build. 7.84 runner in the 60.

Offensively: LHH. Even setup, with feet just outside his shoulders; bat positioned at a 45 degree angle. Loads straight back with an up and down stride for timing. Slides weight forward pre-contact. while showing a strong lower half. Showed a sweeping swing path. with a two handed finish.  More fly balls than line drives and ground balls with a peak exit velocity of 90 MPH via Trackman.

Defensively: Starts with a compact setup; utilizing a traditional primary position while staying low during receiving. Hands work through the ball while standing up during transfer. Short take back from a high 3/4 arm slot. 2.06-2.12 pop times. C - 74 MPH.

Pitching: Uses a center rubber setup while using a side step. Mid chest leg drive with shoulders above the hips. Has a moderate stride landing inline with the plate. Moderate arm swing while showing some scap load; standard 3/4 slot. Square to the plate with finish. FB: Peak velo of 82 MPH, while sitting 80-82 MPH; arm side run with sink.  SL: 64-66 MPH; lateral action. CH: 73-76 MPH; fading action.

6/30/21

Physical: Strong, durable 6-foot-1, 180lb frame. 8.13 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Wider, even stance with the hands drawn at the shoulder to start. Utilized a leg lift to initiate a slightly uphill, rotational path into the hitting zone. Could let the hands leak at times to the pull-side, generating a lofty approach to the right side during his round; a 30% fly ball rate allowed him to create some backspin for occasional doubles power up to around 300 feet of batted ball distance (via Trackman). Produced a T85 mph bat-exit velocity with some feel for the top hand. 

Defensively: The first baseman showcased adequate feel around the bag, setting up early with a simple glove hand presentation out in front. Worked softly, exchanging inward to the chest before a lower ¾ release while keeping the feet moving at an average pace (71 mph, accurate).

Pitching: LHP - Operated at a breakneck pace, getting the ball and going with athleticism in the delivery; repeated some, able to land into a firm front side on his move down the slope at H ¾ slot. Fluid release and arm-side run on a 76-78 mph FB, countering with a 1/7 shaped 64-66 mph breaker. A commanded 74-75 mph CH worked hand in hand with the FB, tunneling consistently.


4/03/21

Pitching: Impressive athleticism and feel for the body in the lefty & righty delivery. L: Works up tempo through the drop step into leg lift before gathering some as gets down the mound in line, quality hip shoulder rotation into a finish against a strong front side; long, fluid arm action through a natural 3/4 release. R: Delivery mirrors with a slight more sink in the legs through release. FB: Has advanced life through the zone (29 Bauer Unit), flashing ride (18" IVB) and arm side run (-15" horizontal). CB: good feel with sharp break (L:1-7 shape / R: 11-5 shape). CH: Thrown at near FB arm speed with fade from both sides.

2/18/21

Physical: Well-proportioned, lean 6-foot, 177-pound frame. 8.13 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Started from an upright, balanced stance with the hands showing rhythm above the shoulder; utilized a leg lift stride in order to initiate the bat head through a flat path into the hitting zone, high posture throughout the swing yielding a middle of the field approach and tons of line drives during his batting practice round (64% line drive rate). Generated a peak bat-exit velocity of 83 mph per Trackman Baseball with room for more as he matures. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman played moderately low to the ground from a wide base, arrived on time and used a soft glove hand out in front of his body, funneled into the belt line, and released from a long takeaway, high ¾ slot (75 mph).
