8/10/21

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 165lb frame with two-way appeal. 7.24 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: LHH - Crouched, balanced stance as the hands operated calm at a 45 by the head. Utilized a direct lift and replace stride with quick barrel actions initiating through a slight uphill path into the zone. Natural top hand feel and matched plane at release, able to manipulate for flush contact to multiple quadrants. Stayed in the legs with impressive bat to ball skills, posing minimal swing/miss in game action. Recorded a T89 mph bat-exit velocity at a 46% line drive rate (via Trackman) for doubles power to pull. Top of the order role down the road and makes for a tough out. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop featured athletic movements from right to left as the glove hand presented out in front. Corralled evenly inward and got rid with a quick, rhythmic arm circle from a H ¾ slot across the diamond (84 mph arm, carry). Feel to finish the play on the run accurately. 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the middle of the rubber with consistent tempo down the slope. Found a balanced stack position, racing into footstrike using rotational drive. A H ¾ slot gave way to a carrying 80-81 mph FB up in the zone. Mixed a sharp 67-70 mph SL for strikeouts when ahead in the count (good spin, hard bite) and countered with a small-fading 73-74 mph CH to arm-side.


6/28/21

Physical: Athletic 5-foot-11, 165lb frame with efficient actions and feel for his body; two-way skillset. 7.43 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: LHH - Balanced, even stance with a slight bend in the knees as the hands operated in rhythm by the head; utilized a calm lift and replace stride to initiate the swing through a flat, connected path into the hitting zone. Good feel for the top hand, able to direct the bat head on-time to all quadrants of the plate; top of the order type approach, spraying line drive contact from gap to gap (44% line drive rate via Trackman). Posted a T86 mph bat-exit velocity with room for more, finding doubles on occasion up to a near 300 foot batted ball distance.

 Defensively: The shortstop showcased a clean defensive round, getting to the right of the baseball and working right-left down through with a soft glove hand funneling into the waist-line. Rangy in either direction, holding pace to the target using a quicker releasing (H ¾ slot, 84 mph arm, game-speed). 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the middle of the rubber with fast pace to the delivery; came to a rhythmic pause at the side rocker, getting to a balanced stack and maintaining tempo down the slope with good sequencing in the body. Released from a fluid H ¾ slot, creating carry on an 82-84 mph FB (18+ inches of average IVB, via Trackman) and mixed a two-plane 71-73 mph CB at T2454rpms, (-6 inches IVB, 8 inches HM). Showed hitters a different look, landing an advanced 73-75 mph SL thrown harder and biting up to T12 inches of HM across the plate (strikeout pitch).


2/15/21

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 160-pound frame with good proportions. 7.37 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Balanced, loose stance with the hands starting in front of the shoulder at a 45 degree angle over the backside. Utilized a controlled leg lift stride in order to initiate the hands through an efficient, slightly-uphill path into the hitting zone. Impressive feel for the hit tool evidenced by a 62% line drive rate per Trackman Baseball, middle-RCF approach with an 88 mph peak bat-exit velocity that plays into doubles power at the moment. Notched a 302 foot batted ball distance with advanced bat to ball skills in the box; more to come as he keeps filling out. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop featured advanced footwork in the middle of the field with pace and good posture at the fielding window. Worked off the left foot in the approach with a soft glove hand, funneled into the belt line showcasing a strong 82 mph arm strength across the diamond. Made the play on the run with extreme confidence, smooth as silk on the transfers going across his body. 


9/11/20

Physical: 5-foot-9, 155 pounds; slender, lean frame. 7.45 runner in the 60.
Offensively: LHH. Narrow feet, slightly open front with hands that work just around the shoulder; works through a small stride forward and tips the barrel forward. Clean turn of the hips with good repeatability with level swing path that shows some adjustability in it, good bat to ball skills. Hit the ball well back up the middle, mixed in some pull side line drives as well; peak Trackman exit velocity of 81 MPH.
Defensively: Low to the ground, moves into his position before the pitch; Takes prep steps to the ball and makes it a point to move off his front foot when fielding the ball. Soft hands that work effortlessly into a tranfer; long, whippy actions in the arm through a 3/4 slot. INF - 82 MPH.
Pitching: Smooth tempo in the delivery, gets into the back leg well down the mound. Shorter arm action, keeps his elbow bent throughout the take away and throws from a 3/4 slot.

7/06/20

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-10, 155-pound frame with advanced feel for his body but room to still fill out as he matures. 7.37 runner in the 60-yard dash.  

Offensively: LHH. Tall, balanced stance with the hands high at the ear in the setup. Utilized a slight bat wiggle coupled with a repeatable toe tap stride to initiate a quick and high intent launch through a slightly uphill path in the zone. Lived in the CF to RCF gap during batting practice with fluidity through contact and ability to get well extended. The lower half is athletic in the box and allows for adjustability while hitting into a stiff front side with balance throughout the approach. The hands were short and quick and created multiple hard base hits during game action at the NY State Games. Recorded a max of 88 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball with room for more on the way. His longest swing of the day traveled 338 feet and a max of 70.3 mph bat speed according to Blast Motion shows just how quickly that bat was moving through the zone. Should develop into a quality middle of the order hitter with the ability to slot in at the 2 spot as well. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop showcased a low center of gravity with advanced footwork in the middle of the field. Demonstrated a feel for rhythm in the approach getting the ball out quick through an accurate high ¾ slot which allowed for sub 4.20 second plays from the left side of the infield. A soft glove hand played smoothly out in front with well above average range to either side of the body which should keep him at shortstop long term. SS - 83 mph

Pitching: RHP - Slow, deliberate delivery with solid straight line drive towards the plate allowing the arm to work through a quick, high ¾ slot. The fastball played in the zone at 80-82 mph with an upwards of 2063 spin. Countered with a sharp 68-70 mph CB showing 11/5 shape and occasional swing and miss action with a top spin of 2379 per Trackman Baseball. Showed off an adequate third offering; a 72-74 mph CH at near fastball arm speed with deception.
