Hit:6.6 runner with 72mph bat speed according to blast. Showed a balanced stroke through the zone. Uphill path with a middle-back approach. Settled into his round toward the end, barrelling up the baseball consistently. Some cleaning up to do but no doubting the athletics. Power:Easy gap pop. Offensive Projection:Multiple Roles. Max BP Exit Velocity:87 mph Max BP Distance: 298 ft Field:Athletic feet with ball skills on par to ahead of the curve for class. Play fast. With his athleticism/arm strength he could profile at multiple spots. Throw:Above average strength for class. Defensive Projection: UTL

6/16/20

6/16/20 Pitching
Scouting Notes:Obvious athleticism on the mound with pitchability. Works quickly with good tempo. Long back arm action through a high-3/4 slot.

6/16/20 Position Player
Hit:Right-handed hitter that starts in an athletic setup. Looks the part in the box. Efficient load followed by a level stroke. Sprayed it all over the yard in BP.

2/9/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: Boles work from the middle of the rubber and shows a somewhat low ¾ arm slot which is accentuated by the slight crossfire nature of his delivery. He builds momentum down the mound fairly well.
Fastball: The fastball was 79-81 mph and showed mostly true through the zone.
Curveball: His breaking ball was 66-69 mph was a slurvey shape and didn’t presently show a ton of bite but has the potential into a higher quality offering.
Changeup: The changeup was 70-73 mph.
Pitchability: Pretty good feel for his three pitch mix. Secondary offerings still show some degree of need for refinement but overall moves athletically on the mound and creates good leverage with his long levers. Definitely a guy who could see a big velo spike as he adds strength to his frame. 

2/9/20 Position Player
Hit: At the plate he shows a simple hip hinge load and shows a bit of stiffness to his swing. Shows a line drive approach.
Power: 70 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Presently projects to be more of an average hitter than gap to gap or power guy. Shows good athleticism at times but lacks some basic fundamental skills. Still an overall projectable prospect.
Field: In the infield he aggressively attacked the ball with good rhythm and timing. He showed good hands a quick, efficient transfer on his throws. In the outfield he showed below average footwork and rhythm and was overly two handed when attacking balls. Shows quick arm and good carry on his throws.
Throw: 72 mph across the diamond and 85 mph from the outfield.
Defensive Projection: Showed good raw arm strength from the outfield but much more defensive polish and better instincts in the infield. Good athleticism and could project at either IF or OF at the next level.

6/11/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 131-pound and athletic frame.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Quick delivery with a longer arm action and dynamic lower half. More velocity to come as physical maturation takes place.

Fastball: 73-77mph. Slight glove side movement that can be adjusted with grip. Ability to locate on both corners of the plate well.

Curveball: 63-64mph. 11/5 movement for a solid offering. Ability to locate in the zone consistently.  

Pitchability: High pitch ability working inner and outer half of the plate.

Additional Comments: Young prospect with high potential.

Throw:
Arm works well and has strength behind it.

TBD.

6/27/18
Two-way prospect. On the bump the right-hander uses an uptempo delivery that requires some effort. Big leg lift followed by a drop and drive load. Long, loose arm through a high-¾ slot. Fastball is mostly true through the zone with occasional run at 68-72 mph. Curveball is spun tight on an 11/5 shape with late bite at 56-58 mph. Also has a slider that works on a 10/4 plate. The slider has more swing and miss to it than the breaking ball. Completing his arsenal is a changeup that has some fade to it at 59-63 mph. At the plate he has a very balanced, efficient swing from the right side. Strength stands out in hands with present jump off the barrel. A feel hitter that can square the ball up regular generating easy backspin. A rangy defender up the middle of the infield with aggressive feet. Ball skills are above average for age. Very loose arm that projects for more strength down the road. Good player.
60-yard dash: 7.39
Infield Velocity: 74
Exit Velocity: 71

 

3/11/18
