2/18/21

Physical: Developing 5-foot-7, 135 pound frame with sneaky athleticism in the movements. Room to fill out as he matures; 7.49 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Starts from a balanced, even stance with a slight bend into the backside drive leg as the torso holds with positioning; high hands to begin allowing for a flat path upon entry into the hitting zone, initiated the swing with a short, on-time lift and replace stride yielding hard line drive contact back through the box (54% line drive rate). Was repeatedly on the barrel and confident in the bat to ball skills yielding an 82 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball; a 94% on-plane efficiency points to just how good he can be down the line (should hit for average at a high level). 

Defensively: The primary shortstop featured quality right-to-left momentum at the fielding window with good downhill posture and chest angles towards the target, created positive angles on routes to induce momentum; accurate 78 mph arm strength from a short, quick high ¾ slot; room for more as he strengthens his body, liked the actions.
