East-West Battle (July 2017)
Open set up with a slight crouch; stays inside contact with zone acceleration. Barrel finds the ball. Solid defender; above average glove with throws showing easy carry. 4.25 home-to-1B; No panic type player with high baseball IQ.
NY Games (June 25-27, 2017) 
Sturdy 5-foot-9, 180-pound third baseman, ran a 7.35/60. Offensively - smooth and fluid swing, effortless, makes consistent barrel contact, keeps bat on level path with full extension and exit velocity of 87 MPH; repeatable motion, short to the ball, evidence of counter rotation between upper and lower torso, further lower body engagement will add to power. Defensively - agile footwork, balanced, confident body language, sure hands, smooth and easy transfer with a velocity of 76 MPH across the infield.


May 2017

6-foot with a solid torso, generates power at the plate with his lower body, smooth and fluid, repetitive motion, uses all fields, gap power and is comfortable going middle third. Shows quick reactions on the defensive side, improving footwork paying dividends with accuracy and arm strength. Impressive instincts. High baseball acumen.

Preseason All-State (February 20, 2017)
5-foot-9 185 pound 3B who ran a much improved 7.28 60. Offensively- Even setup with a slight wrap of the barrel behind the head; covers some ground on his stride while staying behind the ball. Explodes through contact with an aggressive lower half that can open up the 1B line. Can pound the ball gap-to-gap with some pop  to his pull side. Late acceleration through the zone causing the ball to jump; exit velocity is up 6 MPH from his previous best to 91 MPH. Defensively- 3B  is active pre-pitch using a jab step early to help create an angle to and through the ball. Lead leg stays back similar to a 2B creating an open lane to throw. Hands out in front, working through the ball; accurate arm with suitable left side arm strength now at 79 MPH  ( + 4 MPH improvement from previous best). 2B/3B projection with high end offensive capabilities.

April 2016
This freshman standout made a good case for why he should be one of the state top prospects in the 2019 class. Stands 5-foot-7, 175-pounds with a thick athletic frame. In a DH this weekend we watched him scorch balls, going 7 of 9 with 3 doubles on the day, while making some exceptional picks at the hot corner. At the plate he sets up slightly open with a low balanced base. He stays compact through the zone and gets great power from his lower half. At the corner he showed good glove work and an above average arm for that age. He made one particular back hand pick to save a double down the chalk against Clarence HS. The kid plays the game the right way with a lot of hustle and heart. A few traits we hope he hangs onto over the next few years that will continue to elevate his game.
Preseason All-State (February 28, 2016)

Hand position is slightly up and off his shoulder with a 45 degree barrel angle. Wraps the barrel slightly with in his load with a forward stride that gets him back to even.

Defensively- Active feet, good angles, attacks the ball out in front with a soft glove and quick release. Athletic in his actions and plays the part of a middle infielder.
