2/17/19

Body Type:  6-foot-1, 160-pound frame. Skinny, lanky type.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes:  Slightly offset on the rubber in the windup. Regular tempo. Uses leg kick with slight inward turn. Tendency to land closed on foot strike. Cuts off front side. Throws from 3/4 to high 3/4 slot with short arm action.
Fastball:  Mostly straight at 70-73 mph. Not consistently in the zone.
Curveball:  Sat at 60-62 mph. Showed spin, but not two-plane action.
Changeup:  Similar to fastball. Mostly straight at 64-65 mph. Still developing consistent feel and command.
Slider: Similar shape and spin as his curveball with higher velo at 68 mph.
Summary: Needs to work towards repeatability in his delivery and overall consistency with his pitches. At present, both breaking balls showed spin, but not effective break to be quality secondary offerings. 

Swing Mechanics: Uses a mini leg kick to initiate his load with a slight cast of his barrel and a somewhat uphill bat path.
Hit: Good bat to ball ability.
Power: 77 mph exit velocity. 
Offensive Projection: Shows a fairly good swing. Swing is conducive to hitting balls in the air so he would want add strength to get more raw power to help his swing be more effective. At 3B he waits on the ball and shows decent hands.
Field: At 1B he shows average footwork and feel around the bag.
Throw: 71 mph across the diamond.
Run: 5.11 home to first.
Defensive Projection: Checks the boxes defensively for the most part at 1B. Arm strength would make him a better fit at 1B than at 3B.
